Refer to returned checks and declined credit cards at the Bursar’s Office website.

Refunds can vary based on the time you drop your course.

Summer: see calendar

Winter: see calendar 

Open University: see calendar

Special Session: Since class start date varies within a semester, refund is calculated as followed:
 • Students who officially drop by the third calendar day will receive a 100% refund
 • On the 4th calendar day: 75% refund
 • On the 5th calendar day: 50% refund
 • On the 6th calendar day: 25% refund
 • Starting the 7th day: 0% refund.

Students are responsible for dropping their class officially. When students drop a class officially, their account will show class status as "Drop" or "W" grade. Failure to attend may not cause students to be dropped from a class automatically. Failure to drop a course officially generates a failing grade of “F” or Withdrawal Unauthorized (WU) and fees will be charged to the student's account.

Sign up for Direct Deposit (eRefund) to avoid the processing fee. Refunds are not processed during the add/drop period. 

For questions regarding refunds, please contact CPGE at

Student Record Holds

If a Bursar hold has been placed on your records, your registration will not be processed. To resolve the debt, please call the Bursar’s Office at 408-924-1601.

Fee Disclaimer
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 initial fee payments are made, to increase or modify any listed fees, 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.
