Dropping, Adding, and Swapping Courses

Because the summer is on an accelerated schedule, swapping courses is not recommended once classes have begun. However, under extenuating circumstances, students are allowed to add/drop (a.k.a. swap) a course during the first two days of instruction.

Withdraw from Summer School

If a student decides to withdraw from the Summer School classes, you may drop your courses online through SAGE Self-Service until the regular registration deadlines of May 24, 2019 for Session 1 and Session O (Online) and June 28, 2019 for Session 2.

After those dates, students must submit withdrawals in writing to the Summer School office via email to refunds will be determined according to the refund schedule found on the Academic Calendar.

If notification is by postal mail, the postmark is accepted as the effective date for refund purposes described in our Tuition Adjustment Policy.

Phone calls are not accepted as official notification of intent to withdraw. Refunds for withdrawing from a Summer School course will be handled in accordance with Student Financial Services.


Not attending class or failure to pay an outstanding balance do not constitute a withdrawal, nor is it sufficient to notify the course’s instructor of intent to withdraw.

Unless a student applies for official withdrawal by the published deadline, he or she will not receive an adjustment of tuition and fees or a refund and receives a failing grade for a course whether classes were attended or not.
