Withdrawal

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://www.fgcu.edu/Registrar/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. For medical withdrawal procedures, please refer to Medical Withdrawal section.
