If you are unable to take the course as scheduled, you need to officially drop the class. Non-attendance in a class or notification to the instructor does not constitute official dropping of a course. Failure to drop from a course may result in a no report (NR), incomplete (I), or failing grade (F). A grade of “NR” becomes a grade of “F” or “NP” after one quarter. A grade of “I” or incomplete becomes a grade of “F” or “NP” after one year. Contact your instructor about the possibility of replacing it with a grade.

Please complete the Concurrent Enrollment Grade Option Change or Drop Form for each course. Departmental approval is required for all drops. Submit the online form, before 4:00pm (PST) the Thursday of the second week of the quarter. Dean’s or authorized personnel approval is required for drops or grade option changes requested after the deadline. If you do not officially drop from a class, you will receive a failing grade.

Note: Other departmental, school, or instructor deadlines and policies may apply.


Refunds are available upon approval during the first two weeks of the quarter. To be eligible for a refund, submit the online Concurrent Enrollment Course Drop/Grade Option Change Request form, before 4:00pm (PST) the Thursday of the second week of the quarter. Please refer to the Concurrent Enrollment Academic Calendar for Year/Term deadline dates.

There is a $50 non-refundable and non-transferable service charge retained per class for all refunds. UCI DCE refunds back to the original payer and in the original form of payment. Cash and check payments made for courses will be refunded by check. If you paid with a student loan check, the refund will go directly to you, the borrower. We will not send the refund back to the lender. Please allow a minimum of three weeks for processing.

Refunds are not available after the second week of the quarter.
