Students who wish to drop/withdraw (See Official Course Drop/Withdrawal Policy) from a course or withdraw from their program are encouraged to complete the Official Course Drop/Withdrawal Form located in the myCSU Student Portal; however, students may withdraw in any manner by contacting the Office of the Registrar. Any refunds due will be issued within 30 calendar days. All students who drop/withdraw from a course after the drop date (7 calendar days) will be charged a one-time 20 percent Registration Fee (maximum of $200 per degree program). The remaining tuition will be refunded based on the course start date and the tuition percentage amounts listed below. Note: Refunds may be reduced by the cost of the textbook (See Textbook and Course Material Policy).
