College of Professional & International Education
  • To Drop a Course:

    Once the session begins, students cannot drop courses using Self-Service registration and instructor permission is required to drop once the session begins. Students can obtain permission from their instructor to drop via email. 

    Students who wish to drop their course must submit an online registration form by the drop deadline and attach the approval from their instructor. The Student Services Center will contact students within 1-2 business days with confirmation. 


    To Withdraw from a Course
     
    Students who wish to withdraw from a course must obtain instructor and department chair approval, then download a Petition to Withdrawal, and submit it to cpie-info@csulb.edu. Students can obtain permission to withdraw by email. 
      

    You must officially drop or withdraw from a class, even though you may not have attended. Instructors do not drop students for non-attendance in the Summer term. 
    Be aware that requests to drop short-duration classes will only be approved by instructors if submitted early in the session.

    A 'W' (Withdrawal) will be posted to a student's transcript for any course dropped after these dates:
    • Session I: June 8, 2020
    • Session II (Full Summer Session): June 8, 2020
    • Session III: July 19, 2020
    Withdrawals are not permitted during the final week of instruction. Only extenuating circumstances will be considered. Approval from Instructor, Department Chair, Dean and University Provost will be required. Forms must be turned in to Enrollment Services.

    Non-attendance in a course, notifying the instructor, or stopping payment on a check does not officially constitute dropping or withdrawing from a course. Students utilizing these methods without submitting an add/drop form to CPIE will be graded appropriately in the course. In the case of a stop payment order or non-sufficient funds, the student is also financially liable for the bad check.
