Late Withdrawal

Late Withdrawal

Because of the generous time normally allowed to withdraw from a class, a late withdrawal is reserved for a compelling, extraordinary situation. A late withdrawal does not refund tuition fees. If a late withdrawal is approved by Academic Services, then a grade of "Withdraw Passing" (WP) or "Withdraw Failing" (WF) will be assigned by the instructor according to the student's academic performance. A "WP" has no effect on the GPA and a "WF" is calculated as a failing grade in the GPA. Talk to your professor before pursuing a late withdrawal petition. Your professor should be informed of your intent to change the registration status of your class(es). A late withdrawal must be filed within one (1) year of the end of the semester involved.

If you are an Undergraduate student and have read and understood these rules and procedures and wish to continue with this process, email Academic Services from your Knightsmail e-mail account with your name, UCFID (formerly known as PID), and what type of petition you are trying to pursue (and the courses involved in your request), or come to our office in Millican Hall 210 and inform us of your desire to continue with the petition process.
