For IEP/OEP students requesting late add, late drop, withdrawal, late withdrawal, and medical withdrawal, after the official add/drop deadline, please review the additional guidance below.
Considered if the student is unable to complete the session due to a documented extenuating circumstance, such as the death of an immediate family member, involuntary call to military service, or a documented administrative error by the university. A late drop petition must be submitted within six months of the end of the session for which the late drop is sought, as mandated by the Board of Governors policy. If approved, a late drop will result in a full refund of tuition fees and the complete removal of the course from the student’s academic record.
Considered when a student is unable to add a class by the add/drop deadline. It is reserved for an unavoidable delay in adding a class or an administrative error in the registration process or advising. If approved, the student will be assessed a $100 late fee, unless the late add is due to an administrative error. Late adds are not usually approved beyond the second week of classes unless there are documented extenuating circumstances.
Considered when a student is to be moved from one enrolled class to another. No fee is assessed. Swaps are dependent on seat availability and class prerequisites.
Considered when a student wishes to withdraw from a class during the withdrawal period as defined in the UCF Global Academic Calendar. If approved the student is liable for tuition fees and will not receive a refund. The course(s) will remain on the student’s record and assigned a notation of ‘W’ as a grade.
Considered when a student cannot complete the session because of a documented extenuating circumstance that occurs after the withdrawal deadline. If approved, the student is liable for tuition and fees and will not receive a refund. The course(s) will remain on the student’s record and assigned a notation of ‘W’ for a grade.
Considered when a student is unable to complete the session due to a serious medical condition (physical or psychological). A medical provider will need to provide appropriate medical documentation. A medical withdrawal is usually for all classes taken in the session. The medical condition should have arisen during the given session from which withdrawal is sought. If the student is aware of the medical condition prior to the beginning of the session, they must provide medical documentation demonstrating that there was a change in the condition during the session that resulted in their inability to meet course requirements. An approved medical withdrawal will include tuition refund only if the completed petition was submitted before the six-month submission deadline, as mandated by the Board of Governors policy. If submitted after six-month submission deadline, and approved, the student remains liable for tuition and fees and will not receive a refund. The course(s) will remain on the student’s record and assigned a notation of ‘WM’ for a grade.
If you are requesting to file for a late drop, late withdrawal, or medical withdrawal, please schedule an appointment with a UCF Global Academic Advisor at the UCF Global Front Desk on the 1st Floor.
