No - students will not be dropped from a course for non-attendance. Students who choose not to attend class (in-person or online) will still be responsible for tuition and fees incurred as a result of their enrollment in Winter Session 2021. Please refer to the Academic Calendar for drop dates and complete refund details.
It is the student’s responsibility to drop/withdraw from a course. Students are responsible for all associated fees and completing drop/withdraw requests. Partial charges may be posted on your student account depending on the drop date even though students did not make a payment. Not attending a course does not mean a student will be automatically dropped from that course. Failure to drop/withdraw from a course in which one is officially registered but does not complete, will result in a grade of “F” or No Credit (NC). Refunds are based on the date when the official withdrawal is received in the Extended Education office. If you need to drop a class, you may do so via your myCSUB account, in person, email (email@example.com), fax, or mail through the Extended Education office. The day you drop online or when the form is received, is the official date of withdrawal and determines the amount eligible for refund. Please refer to the WinterSession academic calendar for drop dates and refund policy.
Yes, for those who are continuing CSUB students. Continuing CSUB students will meet with their academic advisors either within Undergraduate Advising Services or within the appropriate School.

Yes. All courses offered in the CSUB Extended Education Winter Session are regular academic credit courses that are transferable to other institutions. If you are a student enrolled in another college or university and you would like to transfer units completed during the Winter Session at CSUB back to your home institution, please contact the Registrar's Office at your home institution and follow their process to receive transfer credit. It is recommended that students confirm in advance with their home institution the eligibility to have specific CSUB course units accepted in transfer to satisfy their home institution's degree requirements. The student is responsible for completing any requirements outlined by the home institution to transfer credit back to the institution.
The Extended Education office accepts checks, money orders, and credit cards (Visa and Mastercard only). Students may make payments in the form of cash via the Cashier’s Window.
