If you are enrolled in multiple courses (as in June-July) and only want to cancel one of these, you may drop the course in my.SMU through the drop period (see the Drop/Withdrawal Deadline for your term).

If you are enrolled in only one course (as in Jan or May Term) OR you want to cancel all of your courses so that you withdraw from the term, you MUST fill out additional paperwork in one of the following ways:

  1. Prior to the first day of term, cancel by completing the online Cancellation Form for your term above. 
  2. To cancel on or after the first day of class, JanTerm and MayTerm students should email the Intersessions office.  If you are a student enrolled in Summer, email the Records Office for your school of record.

PLEASE NOTE: Cancellation/Withdrawal is not an automatic process.  It can take 1-2 business days for the course(s) to be dropped from your schedule & an additional couple of days for a refund to be processed (where applicable).


Cancellations prior to the start of your session are entitled to a 100% refund. See program Dates and Deadlines to check if your cancellation is eligible.

Students who drop early in the term may be entitled to a partial refund.
For short sessions (JanTerm, MayTerm, June A/B, and July A/B), students can receive a 50% refund if they initiate a drop on the first day of class.
For longer sessions (online courses, and the main June & July session), students must drop early in the term to be eligible for a partial refund.

For information on the processing of your refund, please consult the the Bursar's Office Refunds webpage, or contact Enrollment Services at 214-768-3417 or
