Dropping a Class
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.
