Summer Term Fee Refund Policy

If you decide not to attend a term or drop some units

  • You must drop all your classes including waitlisted classes before the term begins to have your charges fully reversed.
  • If you wait and drop all your classes, including those scheduled in different sessions, after the term begins or withdraw after add/drop, your fee charges will be prorated, meaning you will be charged for every day of enrollment, whether you attended classes or not. See the Fee Refund Policy for complete details.
  • All financial aid, including loans, is contingent upon class attendance. If you drop to zero units or reduce units below required unit levels, your financial aid award may be modified and you may be required to return aid refunded to you.
