3-Day Drop for Nonpayment

Full Term and Fast Track 1 Courses

  • Students are allowed three calendar days (including weekends and holidays) from the date of registration to submit payment in full. If payment is not submitted within the allotted time, all classes will be dropped.
  • Students who register less than three days prior to the start of the term must pay in full before the first day of instruction. Students who do not submit payment within the allotted time will be dropped from all classes.
  • Please refer to the payment chart for your payment due date. 

14-week & Fast Track 2 Courses

Payment for 14-week & Fast Track 2 courses are due at the time of registration. The 3-day drop policy does not apply. If fees are not paid at the time of registration, a restriction will be placed on your record (Title 5, Section 59410). Once 14-week & Fast Track 2 classes have begun, an Add Code is required for registration in all sections. Deadlines vary for short-term classes. Refer to your registration statement for exact deadline dates.

The following groups will not be dropped for non-payment:

  • Students enrolled in the NBS Tuition Payment Plan
  • Third-Party/Sponsor-paid students (appropriate paperwork must be submitted to the Cashier’s Office prior to the student’s payment deadline).
  • Students who have been awarded the California College Promise Grant*. The CCP Grant must be applied to the student’s account prior to registration or within ten days of registration. CCP Grant students will receive a restriction on their account on the first day of the term if payment has not been submitted.



Add Authorization and Faculty Consent

Add Authorization
Once instruction begins, add authorization is required to register for a section. Add authorization can be requested by contacting the instructor of any class you wish to add. Once the instructor authorizes the add, you can register via the "Self-Service (Registration)" link in the MyChaffey Portal.

Faculty Consent
Some classes require faculty consent to allow students to register.  “Instructor consent required for enrollment” is listed for these sections in the Schedule of Classes. You will need to contact the instructor to request consent. Once it has been issued, you can register via the "Self-Service (Registration)" link in the MyChaffey Portal.

Drop Policy

Some dates vary. Refer to your Registration Statement for exact dates.

Full-term Classes – refer to the published deadline dates in the schedule of classes or academic calendar

Fast-Track and Late Start Classes – refer to the deadline dates printed on your registration receipt

To receive a refund of fees (or to reverse charges for a class, if you haven’t yet paid), drop your full- term class on or before the refund deadline. In general, the refund deadlines for shorter-term courses (8-week Fast Track & 14-week) typically fall within 2 days of the start date of the course.  It is your responsibility to drop your courses.

  • If you drop after the refund deadline, you will be responsible for the fees even if you don’t attend the class.


To avoid a “W” grade on your transcript:

  • Drop your full-term class on or before the Deadline to Drop w/out a “W”
  • A drop after the deadline will result in “W” grade, and the entry is permanent


Last day to drop for the semester (resulting in a “W” grade):

  • Drop your full-term class by the Deadline to Drop with a “W”.
  • After the deadline passes, the class can no longer be dropped and the instructor will be required to issue a final grade at the end of the semester. Be sure to drop on or before the deadline to avoid a substandard grade that will affect your GPA.


To Drop a Class:

  • Log in to the MyChaffey portal and select ‘Register/Add/Drop Classes’ under the Self-Service Quick Links.


If you have a restriction on your account:

  • You must drop your class in person in the Admissions & Records Office on any Chaffey campus before the appropriate deadline.


Please Note: The Admissions & Records Office cannot extend the Last Day to Drop.
