Our Best Answer - How do I drop a class?

Dropping Classes

To drop a class, please use the drop a class feature from Corsair Connect. Please make sure to pay attention to the refund and various W grade deadlines found on Corsair Connect

If you are dropped for non-payment or not postponing your fees, please see if you can get back to your original classes through Corsair Connect. If not, try to find classes that are still open and fit your educational plans. Otherwise, please use the Open Seat Notification option from Corsair Connect to be notified when a class section opens up. 

If you are no longer able to attend SMC, please drop your classes by the appropriate deadline. No other action is required.
