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.
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.
To withdraw from a class, select the Term and click the Submit
button. Select “Withdraw” as the New Registration Status for the
course(s) you’d like to process and click the Withdraw Courses button.
The Current Registration Status will change to “Withdrawn” if the submission is
successful. Please confirm that the Current Registration Status has changed to
“Withdrawn” before leaving the page.
If an unusual circumstance prevented you from withdrawing prior to the deadline, you may be able to petition. Learn more about withdrawing after the deadline.
Complete Withdrawal is the formal process of leaving the University. Dropping all classes or withdrawing from all classes in a term is not the same as a Complete Withdrawal from the University. Once the Complete Withdrawal process has been completed, the student’s academic responsibility with the University will be discontinued, though a Complete Withdrawal does not excuse the student from any financial responsibilities the student may have incurred with the University. A Complete Withdrawal must be initiated by a student’s academic advisor, and a student wishing to completely withdraw must meet with an academic advisor in person or through a mutually agreed upon meeting format. Students who completely withdraw from the University will receive a grade of WC (Complete Withdrawal) in each course. Terms in which grades have already rolled to academic history are ineligible for a complete withdrawal and "WC" grades. The assigned “WC” grade will count toward the total withdrawals allowed and will remain on the academic transcript. A student who completely withdraws from the University may not continue to attend class. Complete withdrawal from all courses will result in a registration hold being placed on the student in future terms. Students who want to enroll in a future term must meet with their advisor.
This policy is not to be confused with withdrawing from all courses in a term to receive a 25 percent refund of tuition and fees. Students who withdraw from all courses (excluding Summer A, B, 8- and 10-week courses) by the deadline posted on the Academic Calendar and receive the refund, but intend to re-enroll at the University would not be covered under the University’s official Complete Withdrawal policy. The Complete Withdrawal policy outlines the formal process of leaving the University.
