How to cancel or withdraw
Cancellation/withdrawal of courses in-progress are subject to Bursar's Office refund policies.
PLEASE NOTE: Students enrolled in Graduate, Taos, or Abroad programs may not use the form above. Please contact the administrator for your program to cancel your enrollment.
Do you want to switch courses?
Use SWAP instead of DROP from the "Enroll" page of my.SMU
(Cancellation deactivates your account for the term, making it harder to re-enroll)
Do you want to drop one course but keep others (Applies to SUMMER only)?
DROP the course for yourself in my.SMU. Only use the cancel form if you only have one class to drop or you want to cancel ALL your courses.
Are you only enrolled in one course?
If you are enrolled in only one course you cannot drop in my.SMU. To cancel all courses so that you're enrolled in 0 credit hours for a term, you MUST fill out additional paperwork by clicking on one of the buttons above OR by reaching out to the Intersessions office at email@example.com. If you are enrolled in multiple courses and only wish to drop/withdraw from one, you can complete this transaction in my.SMU.
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 eligible for a 100% refund. See program Dates and Deadlines to check if your cancellation is eligible.
Students who drop early in the term may be eligible for 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. See Bursar's Office refund policies.
