Dropping a Class

Overview

Dropping a Class

Fall and Spring: To drop a class in the first two weeks of the semester

You drop a class until the drop date by using the SJSU MySJSU web site. A tutorial at https://www.sjsu.edu/learnanywhere/how-tos/my-sjsu-basics/drop-class.php explains how to drop a class on the MySJSU website.

To drop a class after the first two weeks of the semester

Regular Session Students: The deadline for dropping a class (without a “W”) is posted on the SJSU Registration Calendar. After that date, a grade of “W” will be recorded for a dropped class and you must show serious and compelling circumstances for dropping the course. Please read the current Petition for Course Drop form carefully. Instructions and current Petition for Course Drop form can be found under Withdrawal

Special Session Students: The deadline varies. Contact the Student Services Team if you need to drop a class after the first two weeks of class. Do not wait until the end of the semester.

Summer Drops and Refunds

All of our classes for both regular and special session students are in special session in summer.  So the dates on the University summer calendar will not apply to you.  For 100% refunds in summer session, drop before the first day of summer session. Contact CPGE for information about the 75% refund deadline for summer “professional degree programs” at: cpge@sjsu.edu
