Reduction In Course Load
If you drop a course but do not completely withdraw from school for the term, and the reduction in credit hours results in a change of fees, a refund will be made according to the following schedule.

Requests to drop courses between May 3 and May 14th must be submitted to the Registrar's Office from a CougarNet email account. Students must supply the following information in the email in order to have the summer request processed:

  • Full Name
  • CSU ID#
  • SUMMER CRN # of the course to be dropped
  • SUMMER COURSE Number to be dropped

Students should email Lacey Johnson directly at johnson_lacey@columbusstate.edu.

Emails received from accounts other than Cougar email will not be processed. Students will receive a return email confirmation when the drop has been processed.

Total Withdrawal
If withdrawing from all courses, according to the Board Regents' policy, the refund amount for a student is based on a pro rata percentage determined by the number of calendar days in the semester that the student completed. See Table for Refund %

Fee Payment Deadlines
All Fees must be paid by these deadlines. If there is a remaining balance on your account after either of these deadlines, you will be dropped from all courses. If your balance is zero, your registration will be confirmed automatically. If you decide not to attend, you must drop your courses in ISIS before the first day of the term/semester. Failure to do so will result in your remaining officially registered and may result in the assignment of failing grades.
