You may withdraw from a class or the University in instances of serious health or personal problems beyond your control. You cannot drop a class or classes after the end of the Add/Drop period, but you can withdraw beginning the third week of classes, but prior to the seventh week deadline. Withdrawal refers to official termination of enrollment in a class after the Add/Drop period. See the Important Dates web page for more information.
If you are receiving financial aid, be sure to consult with a counselor in the Office of Financial Aid as some types of aid must be repaid in the event of a withdrawal.
To withdraw from individual courses, complete a Withdrawal Form. On the form, state the reason for the withdrawal, and follow the instructions on the form to obtain required signatures. Incomplete forms will not be processed. International students must obtain permission from the Center for International Education prior to submitting a withdrawal form.
Deliver the form to the Enrollment Information Center, first floor of the Student Services and Administration Building on the Hayward Campus, or to the Academic Service Center on the Concord Campus.
Or you may Fax or mail the form to:
Office of the Registrar
California State University, East Bay
25800 Carlos Bee Blvd.
Hayward, CA 94542
Fax: (510) 885-3816
If the withdrawal is approved, the class will appear on your record with a grade of "W". For more information review the complete policy in the University Catalog.
