Summer Registration

100% Cancellation of all Courses for the Semester

You may be released from your obligation to pay all tuition and fees by canceling your registration for all summer sessions by 11:59 p.m. on Sunday, May 14, the last day before instruction begins for Summer Session 1. That is your LAST opportunity to completely cancel your semester registration via Student Self-Service. One hundred percent refund of tuition and fees will not be granted if any campus service has been used during the semester requested for cancellation.


Please make sure that you are not registered for the Summer 2017 or Fall 2017 semesters so that you do not face unwanted tuition and fees charges. If you are registered and are not continuing in another program, log into Self-Service to cancel your registration for Fall 2017. If you are registered for Summer 2017 and you are not attending, you will need to complete a Withdrawal/Cancellation form and submit this form to your departmental office. Please see your department if you have any questions.
