Academic & financial consequences
Before reducing your credit load or changing your grade basis, see both a One Stop counselor and your academic adviser for assistance in making the best choice for your circumstances. Ask your college adviser whether changes will affect your academic progress and talk to a One Stop counselor about potential loss of some or all of your financial aid eligibility. See also:
How to cancel a class
Be sure to obtain permission from an instructor and/or college scholastic committee (see Cancel/add & refund deadlines charts), if required. If no approvals are required and you are confident that making the change is necessary, you may choose one of three ways to cancel a class:
- online at Web registration (preferred) (hours)
- in person at a One Stop Student Services Center by printing, completing, and submitting the PDF version of the Registration and Cancel/Add Request (pdf) or, if you prefer, submit your printed form by fax or mail.
Your student account billed
Any charge (including financial aid that you may need to return) or credit balance that results from a change in your registration is posted to your student account and will appear on your next billing statement.
For example, if you withdraw from a class after the 100 percent refund period (first week of the term) and you are approved for a 13-credit policy exemption, you will be billed for a percentage of tuition and fees based on the number of credits canceled. If you add a class, you will be incur additional billing charges based on the credits added.
When you enroll for the first time on or after the first day of class, you will be charged a late registration fee of $50 during the first 14 days of the term and $100 after the first two weeks of the term. See late registration fees.
Pay on time to avoid extra fees
Remember to pay your tuition and fees by the due date on your billing statement or a hold will be placed on your record. A $35 installment fee will be added to your account if you pay the minimum amount due. If your payment is received after the due date or is less than the minimum amount due, you will be charged a $30 late payment fee, in addition to the installment fee. Failure to pay by the final billing due date may lead to the cancellation of current and future registration.
