Withdrawal is the formal process of leaving the university during a term. Dropping all classes does not constitute formal withdrawal from the university. A formal withdrawal can be initiated by submitting a Withdrawal Application in person, by mail or by fax to the Office of the Registrar. Withdrawal Applications are available on the web http://enrollment.fgcu.edu/registration/forms.html.
Students who formally withdraw from the university by the “last date to withdraw without academic penalty,” as published in the Academic Calendar, will receive a grade of W in each course. Students who withdraw after the published “last date to withdraw without academic penalty” will receive a grade of WF in each course. A student who withdraws may not continue to attend class. Requests for appeals to the withdrawal policy should be submitted in writing with appropriate documentation to the appropriate college.
