    Dropping a Course

    For off-campus Summer Session course add/drop/transfer and cancellation information,see the Center for Global Education and Field Study webpages.

    • Notifying your professor does not release you from financial obligations; while courteous, it does not withdraw you from your course.
    • Students can drop their course through Banner up until 3 weeks before the Block begins
      • After this period, the Drop function will no longer be available in Banner and students must go to the Registrar's Office to withdraw from their course
    • Any charges will be based on the date the Registrar's Office dropped the course registration.
      • See below for drop dates and related fees.

    Course Cancellations by Summer Session Office

    • On-campus courses that do not meet the minimum enrollment requirement three weeks prior to the start of the course will be cancelled.
    • If a course is cancelled, Summer Session will notify enrolled students by email.
    • If you are enrolled in a cancelled course, you may transfer any paid tuition to another course or receive a refund of any tuition paid.

    Auditing Summer Courses

    The designation of "Audit" is a registration status used when students officially register for a class without earning a letter grade or credit. Audit courses are subject to full tuition and fees.

    Students may register for a summer class on an audit basis only when space is available and only with the permission of the instructor and Director of Summer Session. Students who receive permission to audit a course are expected to attend classes regularly and complete assigned readings. Other requirements regarding participation are to be agreed upon by the instructor and Director of Summer Session.

    No audited courses can be counted toward a degree. They cannot be paid for with financial aid or the Wild Card.

    All students attending and participating in a course must be officially registered. No provisions for students to merely “sit-in” on summer courses are made and attendance without payment of fees is prohibited.
