Dropping all of your summer classes in a given session—including your only Maymester or Augmester class—is considered a withdrawal. Summer Session withdrawals are unique because you can withdraw from each session in summer separately. For example, you can withdraw from a Maymester class while staying enrolled in a Session B class. Be sure to review the Summer Session calendars so you know the withdrawal deadlines for each session.

Note: Withdrawing from a session in summer will impact your tuition and fees. We encourage you to contact the Office of the Registrar to discuss the financial implications of withdrawing from Summer Session. Call 303-492-6970 or email registrar@colorado.edu.

How to Withdraw

Degree-seeking students can withdraw from summer session(s) by completing an online withdrawal form. For more information about the withdrawal process for degree-seeking students, visit the withdrawal website, email withdraw@colorado.edu, or call the Office of the Registrar at 303-492-6970.

Nondegree students should contact the Division of Continuing Education at 303-492-5148 for withdrawal information.

Note: If you received a final grade for a Summer Session class (excluding W), you cannot withdraw from that session.

If you stop attending classes without officially dropping, you will receive an F and be assessed full tuition and fees. If you plan to drop a class for a session but remain enrolled in other classes in the same session, please review the information in the Add/Drop section.

Withdraw Penalties and Refunds

You may be assessed financial penalties for withdrawing from all of your Summer Session classes. Nonattendance does not constitute withdrawal and you may still be charged for your classes unless you officially withdraw before the posted deadlines. Visit the Session Calendar section for each session’s withdraw deadlines.

If you qualify for a withdrawal refund, it will be directly deposited into your bank account or mailed to you approximately four weeks after you withdraw. This includes if you take a leave of absence. You can set up a direct deposit in MyCUInfo before you leave or update your permanent address to be sure you receive your refund.

Please contact the Office of the Registrar if you have questions about withdrawing from Summer Session. You can reach them at 303-492-6970 or withdraw@colorado.edu.
