Course Add/Drop, and Withdrawal by Summer Term

The drop and withdrawal 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.

  • Students: 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 2023.”

Please note: Information on this website refers to the Drop and Withdrawal policies for main campus classes offered on campus or online. Courses offered through CSU Online have difference policies.

Tuition Assessment Appeals

Registration Appeals are due to the Registrar’s Office by Friday, August 4, 2023 at 4:30 p.m. Staff in the Registrar’s Office are available to answer questions related to these appeals.

Note: If an extenuating, documentable, circumstance prevents the completion of a term, students are encouraged to discuss with their academic advisor if a tuition appeal is appropriate. Appeals must be filed within one academic year from the posting of grades for the term in question.
