Dropping a Class


Dropping a Class

Fall and Spring: To drop a class BEFORE DROP DEADLINE

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.


MLIS and MARA, Certificate and TL Credential 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. The drop deadline is the same even if the class runs later in the semester.

MS in INFM Students: Based on the dates that Session I and Session II classes run: Students may drop a class through MySJSU up to 10% of the session term (round down), not the class date.

**Drop deadlines are different from refund deadlines. Please see Refund Policy for information on refund deadlines.



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.  Refer to the special session refund policy. Contact CPGE with questions about special session ”professional degree programs” refund policy at: cpge@sjsu.edu
