It depends on how late your dropped it...If you dropped it on, or slightly before the drop deadline, then you get no money back from the course (which sucks a lot...I know from personal experience). Each day that passes decreases the amount refunded should you drop a course.
But when you drop a course, your student account is credited immediately. Pop onto MUGSI, check your Account Statement, and check the activity for whatever month it was you dropped it in. If you see a -$XXX or whatever for Cancellation, then your account was already credited but had a positive balance. You may also have to check the initial charge on your summer semester...like if you took 4 courses then dropped one, you may see that you were only charged for 9 units instead of 12 (again, depending on the timeframe and when exactly you dropped it)
If not, then it may have been too late in the semester to get a decent amount of money back. 2-3 weeks isn't a substantial part of a normal semester, but it's a good chunk of a summer semester.
