Dropping Classes for Winter Session 1 & 2

  Students may withdraw without a record of enrollment until December 22, 2021.

Note: to drop a class, you must fill out a drop form online or at the Extended Education Registration Office. If you do not follow this process, you will be considered to be enrolled in the class and responsible for the academic coursework and payment for the class.

The effective date of withdrawal is the date the forms are received by the College of Extended and International Education. Nonattendance in a class, selecting the wrong class, notifying the instructor or stopping payment on a check does not officially constitute withdrawal from a course.

After the first week, and prior to the last 4 days of the session, students may file a Petition for Exception Packet to withdraw with a “W” for “serious and compelling reasons” only. The Petitions for Exception must be signed by the instructor and college dean. Students must provide evidence to support their petitions to drop a course where the cause of withdrawal is clearly beyond the student’s control. To drop a class, students must submit the following:

  • A Petition for Exception form signed by instructor and dean
  • A change of grade card
  • A letter of explanation of “serious and compelling reasons”

Processing fee is $10.

During the last 4 days of the session, a student may withdraw with a "w" grade by submitting a change of program form with:

  • the signatures of their instructor, department chair and dean
  • a petition for exception with attached documentation supporting the reason for withdrawal, and
  • documentation of illness or accident.

Cancelled Courses

Course may be canceled if there are not enough students enrolled. If a course is canceled, a full refund will automatically be processed. Please allow six to eight weeks for processing.

University Policies

Privacy Information
The University complies with Federal and State laws concerning privacy rights of students. These rights are summarized in the University Catalog. Questions about privacy rights may be directed to the Dean of Extended Education at (310) 243-3737 or the Vice President for Student Affairs at (310) 243-3784.

Use of Social Security Number
Students are required to provide the University with their correct social security numbers (individual taxpayer identification numbers) pursuant to the authority contained in Section 41201, Title 5, California Code of Regulations, and Section 6109 of the Internal Revenue Code. The University uses the social security number to identify records pertaining to the student and, if needed, to collect debts owed the University. Also, the Internal Revenue Service requires the University to file information returns that include the student’s social security number and other information such as the amount paid for qualified tuition, related expenses, and interest on educational loans. That information is used to help determine whether a student, or a person claiming a student as a dependent, may take a credit or deduction to reduce federal income taxes. Students who do not have a social security number at the time of enrollment will be required to obtain a social security number and submit it to the University within sixty days. Failure to furnish a correct social security number may result in the imposition of a penalty by the Internal Revenue Service. Important Tax Credit Information If you are enrolled in an eligible degree or certificate program or are taking courses to acquire or improve job skills, you may qualify for a Hope Scholarship or Lifetime Learning Tax Credit. The Hope Scholarship tax credit is available only to students in their first two years of postsecondary education who are enrolled at least half-time in an eligible program. The tax credits are based on the amount of qualified tuition and fees, less grants and other tax-free educational assistance and the taxpayer’s modified adjusted gross income. Hope credits apply to fees paid after December 31, 1997. The Lifetime Learning Tax Credit is available to students at all educational and enrollment levels who are enrolled at an eligible educational institution. As with the Hope Scholarship tax credit, this opportunity is based on the amount of qualified tuition and fees, less grants and other tax-free educational assistance and the taxpayer’s modified adjusted gross income. The Lifetime Learning credit applies to fees paid after June 30, 1998. Consult IRS Publication 970 or your tax preparer for additional information on both programs.
