Fall Refunds and Pro-Rata Charges
A 100% refund of basic and/or non-resident fees will be given to students who drop all their classes or withdraw from SJSU no later than August 16, 2021. Refundable fees include basic Fall Registration Fees, Non-California Resident Fees and course fees.
Students who withdraw on or after August 19, 2021, and who have not paid, will be subject to a pro-rata charge. (Please note that registration activity is closed from August 17 - 18.) They will owe a percentage of their fees corresponding to the day their classes were dropped. This will be deducted from paid amount prior to a refund being sent.
Students who drop units, (but remain enrolled), resulting in a lower fee structure and/or mandatory fee obligation during the designated drop period, August 19 through August 30, will be entitled to a refund of applicable tuition and mandatory fees. On and after August 31, 2021, students who remain enrolled but drop classes resulting in a lower fee category will not be eligible for a refund.
A prorated refund from the first day of instruction, August 19, 2021, up to the 60th percent point in the academic period, October 24, 2021, will be applied to students who withdraw from SJSU. The 60th percent point will be equivalent to a 40% refund of all registration and campus mandatory fees with the exception of the transit fee.
