Course Cancellation, Add/Drop, and Withdrawal by Summer Term

The Summer Session drop windows for the summer terms are the same percentage of time as the spring and fall semester periods, but they close more quickly due to the shorter terms.

Please be sure to check RAMweb for specific schedule change deadlines for each course. From the “My Weekly Schedule” window on your RAMweb landing page, choose the “Registered Course Details” link, then choose “Summer Session 2021.”


Please note: CSU Online’s Drop and Withdrawal policies are not the same as main campus classes.
