How do I drop a class?

ANSWER: Please start by contacting an EOP advisor to help you through the process.

The University has altered its drop process to include a fillable PDF that you may submit electronically.

Fill out the Class Drop Request form (PDF) and send it to your professor from your Chico State email account.

After the professor electronically approves (if appropriate), they forward the form to the department chair who electronically approves (if appropriate), who then forwards it to the Dean or Associate Dean (depending on the college), they send the form to the Registrar’s Office. As of right now, electronic approvals are accepted as substitutes for signatures.

You should then receive an email to confirm the process has been completed and the outcome.
