Dropped Classes & Textbooks

A reminder that you must return textbooks from dropped classes within 4 calendar days (i.e. includes Saturday & Sunday) of the official drop date. eSIS automatically sends an email when you drop a class, reminding you to return your books. If the due date is during a weekend, return the textbook(s) to our drop box. Fines for late returned books from a dropped class are $5 per book, with a maximum fine of $10 per class.
