Winter Session: Cancellations and Refunds

If a student finds that their class has been canceled, they should find another class to meet their schedule. If there are not any other classes to meet their need, a refund will be issued. Students should not drop a canceled class. They should use the SWAP feature in GET.

Students enrolling in courses listed in Sections 80, 81 82 or greater and programs offered in Winter Session Self-Support Sessions through the College of Professional and Global Education (PaGE) are entitled to a tuition refund when they follow the established campus procedures and deadlines to drop classes/units or completely withdraw from Self-Support Sessions. Students who completely withdraw/drop classes on or after the start date of Winter Session Self-Support Sessions must pay pro-rata fees for the number of days enrolled in each session. The pro-rata tuition charges are calculated based on the drop or withdrawal date and the length of the sessions. Refund checks will be mailed to the mailing address provided on the Cal State LA GET account. View the Winter Session Proration Table. Students must pay tuition for the number of days enrolled in the session. Detailed Refund Policies can be found on the One-Stop Financial Services webpage or by calling (323) 343-3630.

The CSU makes every effort to keep student costs to a minimum. Fees listed in published schedules or student accounts may need to be increased when public funding is inadequate. Therefore, CSU must reserve the right, even after fees are initially charged or initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees. All listed fees, other than mandatory systemwide fees, are subject to change without notice, until the date when instruction for a particular semester or quarter has begun. All CSU listed fees should be regarded as estimates that are subject to change upon approval by the Board of Trustees, the Chancellor, or the Presidents, as appropriate. Changes in mandatory systemwide fees will be made in accordance with the requirement of the Working Families Student Fee Transparency and Accountability Act (Section 66028-66028.6 of the Education Code).
