Before you decide to cancel or withdraw from classes or from a summer session, it is important to understand the potential impact on your financial aid. Withdrawing from a summer session may affect aid eligibility for other summer session(s), which could result in a bill for a portion, or all aid received. You are responsible for managing any refund received for all expenses while attending summer session(s).
The recalculation of financial aid in the summer is based on several factors, such as:
- withdrawing from the entire summer term
- dropping one session
- reducing units within a session
- dropping one session but adding or keeping another session
Please discuss your decision about dropping courses or withdrawing with your college or major advisor and the Financial Aid and Scholarships Office before you take any action.
Be Informed Before Making a Decision
Your financial aid award is based on the number of units you initially enrolled in, and any reduction in units could result in a change in eligibility and loss of aid. For more information, visit Return of Title IV Funds and Refund Policies as well as information on Withdrawing or Dropping Coursework during summer.
Cancellation or Withdrawal from Summer Sessions
If you wish to cancel or withdraw from any session it is important to understand the potential impact on financial aid. You may cancel summer enrollment through the online Cancellation/Withdrawal Form available on the Office of the University Registrar website to officially complete this process. If dismissed or administratively withdrawn, a Summer Enrollment Change form will be emailed.
You may be required to return financial aid funds received according to the date you officially canceled your registration or withdrew. For important information on this process, please refer to the Return of Title IV Funds and Refund Policies section of our website as well as information on Withdrawing or Dropping Coursework during summer.
Dropping a Course(s)
Even if you are not completely withdrawing from all summer sessions, changes in enrollment in summer courses may affect the amount of aid you are eligible to receive. Submit a 2019-2020 Summer Change in Aid form, located in the awards tab of your MyAwards portal, to notify Financial Aid and Scholarships. This may result in a bill if you received aid for which you are no longer eligible.
