Fees are subject to change.

Winter Intersession is self-supporting. No financial support is received from state or local funds.


The deadline to receive a full refund of fees paid less a $10 processing fee is Wednesday, December 6. 

Students will receive a prorated refund of 75% of fees paid, less a $10 processing fee when dropping a course on January 2-3 and 50% of fees paid, less a $10 processing fee when dropping a course on January 4-5. No refunds after January 5. To obtain a refund, students must complete an Online Refund Form.

Class Attendance

A student who is absent from the first class meeting may lose the right to remain in the class. Students should contact the instructor prior to the registration deadline if they are unable to attend the first class meeting. Students are responsible for information covered during their absence.

A student who has lost the right to remain in a class must formally withdraw/drop the class, adhering to the appropriate procedure and deadlines. Otherwise, the instructor will assign a grade of “WU” (which counts as an “F” in computing grade point averages) or “F.” Losing the right to remain in class does not exempt students from the refund schedule.

Class Cancellation

Although all possible care is taken in preparation of the Sacramento State Winter Intersession Schedule, all classes, instructor designations, locations, fees, etc. are subject to change, correction or cancellation. If a course is cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances or lack of enrollment, students will be offered an alternative course or a full refund of tuition fees.

CCE reserves the right to discontinue, postpone or combine classes, and to change instructors. Every effort is made to accommodate our students’ academic needs. However, in the event that a class is cancelled, it is automatically dropped from the students’ schedule.

If a class has been cancelled and the student chooses to add another course in its place, they have the first week of the session to transfer the registration without paying the $25 transfer fee. The $25 transfer fee will be applied beginning with the second week of the session.


Official transcripts are available from the Registrar’s Office.  Visit their website at for more information about ordering transcripts.


Grades will be available on My Sac State after the session has ended.
