Course Prerequisites

Any course prerequisites are listed in the School of Extended and International Education (SEIE) online catalog.

It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that all course prerequisites are met prior to registering for a class. Failure to meet course prerequisites cannot be accepted as a justification for a refund of fees.

Drop/Withdraw Procedures

Before the drop/add deadline

SSU Students: Classes may be dropped online until January 4, 2021. After that, classes may be dropped via an email to extendeded@sonoma.edu until January 6, 2021. The last day to drop for a full refund is January 4, 2021. The last day to drop for a 65% refund is January 6, 2021. A drop will remove the class from your current schedule with no record of your enrollment in the class on your official transcript.

Non-SSU/Open Door Students: Courses can only be dropped via email to extendeded@sonoma.edu. The last day to drop for a full refund is January 4, 2021. The last day to drop for a 65% refund is January 6, 2021.

After the drop/add deadline

A drop/withdrawal request made after January 6, 2021 will be considered a withdrawal. No refund will be given for a withdrawal.

SSU & Non-SSU Students: Courses can only be dropped after the deadline via email to extendeded@sonoma.edu

A withdrawal will remove the class from your current schedule and will result in a grade of ‘W’ on your official transcript. The grade of ‘W’ has no impact on your GPA.

Petitions to drop late must be for "serious and compelling" reasons with Faculty approval. Serious and compelling reasons include (but are not limited to):

  • An extended absence due to a verifiable accident, illness, or personal problem serious enough to cause withdrawal from the university;
  • An extended absence due to a death in the immediate family;
  • A necessary change in employment status which interferes with the student's ability to attend class. This change in employment status must be verified in writing by the students employer.

The following situations would not fall under the intent of "serious and compelling":

  • Failure to attend class, complete assignments, or take a test;
  • Dissatisfaction with course material, instructional method, or instructor;
  • Class is harder than expected;
  • Pressure of other classes, participation in social activities, or simple lack of motivation;
  • Change of major.
