Withdrawal Policy


Effective fall 2013, there is a course withdrawal limit for all degree-seeking and non-degree seeking undergraduate students. The limit is six (6) UNF course withdrawals.


  • Three (3) course withdrawals at the 1000/2000 level
  • Three (3) course withdrawals at the 3000 level or higher

Unused withdrawals are forfeited and may not be carried forward. After the withdrawal limit is reached, students will be blocked from further course withdrawals by the myWings registration system.


Any course withdrawals that took place prior to fall 2013 do not count toward the limit. The withdrawal limitation only applies to courses taken in fall 2013 or later.


Courses with a grade of "WM" (Medical Withdrawal), "WS" (Military Service Withdrawal), or "WR" (Withdrawal with Refund) are excluded from the limitation policy.


Students are encouraged to meet with their academic advisor prior to completing a course withdrawal if there are questions about how this will affect the academic record or future coursework options.



Please note that graduate students do not have a withdrawal limit.

General Withdrawal Information

  • A student may withdraw from a course, or the University, after the purge for non-payment until the withdrawal deadline listed in the Academic Calendar.
  • Students may withdraw in the myWings web portal through Student Self-Service on the Students tab, complete an official withdrawal request in One-Stop Student Services, or send a signed request for withdrawal postmarked no later than the deadline. Late withdrawals will be considered only if the student has documentation of extenuating circumstances and completes the “Request for Waiver of University Policy” form and indicates a withdrawal after the deadline.   
  • Any courses from which a student withdraws will be assigned a grade of “W.” An approved withdrawal after the deadline will be assigned either a "WP" (Withdrawn Passing) or "WF" (Withdrawn Failing).  If a student stops attending class and does not officially withdraw, a final grade of “F” will be assigned. Once grades for a semester have been posted, withdrawals will not be permitted.
  • After the close of the add/drop period through the 25% refund deadline, students who completely withdraw from all courses for the semester and have paid tuition in full will receive a 25% refund (less repeat assessment, excess hour assessment, and capital and improvement fees). This refund is dependent upon meeting the deadline date indicated in the Academic Calendar as the last day to receive a 25% refund, approximately 4 weeks into the term. The 25% refund applies only to fall, spring, and cross-term summer classes - summer A, B, 8-week, and 10-week classes are not eligible for a 25% refund. 
  • Withdrawing from class(es) does not relieve the student from financial liability. Please refer to the refund policy to determine your eligibility for a refund.
