Dropping to 0 Units

UC San Diego students who receive financial aid dropping to 0 units in any session, or any student dropping to 0 units from Special Session are required to withdraw from their courses in order to drop to 0 units. *Note: Your withdrawal is applicable only to the Summer term, not academic year (Fall, Winter, Spring).

Undergraduate students:  This can only be done by completing the online withdrawal form. When a student from the categories above attempts to drop to 0 units, they will be given an error message and prompted to fill out the form. Please complete the form in order to withdraw.

The form takes 3-5 business days to be processed. The withdrawal is dated with the day the form was submitted. For questions, contact AcademicRecords@ucsd.edu.

Graduate students: Read the Graduate student withdrawal process and contact your Academic Department or Graduate Division.
