Withdrawal and Repeat Information
Students can only withdraw from 18 units during the course of their studies at California State University, Bakersfield. For most students, that means that they can only withdraw from four to six classes in their undergraduate career. Students taking high-unit courses will have even fewer opportunities to withdraw.
Schedule Adjustments made during the Add/Drop Period do not count toward the limit, but changes made after the Add/Drop Period will count toward the limit. Approved course withdrawal for medical or military reasons will also not count towards the 18 unit limit. For more information about “Withdrawal from the Term” policy, please go to the Academic Information section of University Catalog (page 68).
Course Repeat Information
Students can only register for the same course if they previously earned a grade of “C-“or below. Undergraduate students are limited to repeating 16 units (with grade forgiveness) during their career at California State University, Bakersfield.
Students may repeat an additional 12.0 units. In such instances, the repeat grade shall not replace the original grade; instead, both grades shall be calculated into the student's overall grade-point average, but the units earned for the course shall only be granted once. Students can only register for the same course if they previously earned a grade of “C-” or lower.
