Remember that for every one hour of class you may claim one hour of unsupervised study time. Study time beyond that must be supervised. You can work in the Student Resource & Support Network lobby, Library, Computer Technology Center, STEM Center, or Tutoring Center for these hours.

Dropping Courses?

  • September 9 - Last day to add or register for a full-term section
  • September 9 - Last day to drop a full-term course and receive a reversal of charges or refund of enrollment
  • September 10 - Deadline to drop a full-term course without a permanent record "W"
  • September 10 - Census Day; Financial Aid awards are not adjusted after this date
Just as it is your responsibility to register yourself for a class, it is also your responsibility to drop a class when you decide not to continue. The timing of a drop makes a difference in whether or not you owe the college for a course you registered for or if you will receive a refund. It could also impact your financial aid and may limit your ability to receive aid in the future. 

Dropping so you can take this class next semester? Careful! Students are allowed ONLY three attempts to successfully pass a course and will then be unable to take it again at Cabrillo. Learn more about this new State regulation and what it might mean to you.
