After your initial registration, you can make adjustments to your course schedule by adding and dropping courses online in MyFIT through the Late Registration (Add/Drop) period. The Late registration (Add-Drop) period is during the first week of a fall/spring semester, and the 1st & 2nd day of a winter/summer session.
After the last day of Late Registration, online registration is closed and you will no longer be able to add or drop a course. You are only able to withdraw from courses after the Late Registration period.
Withdrawing From a Course After Add/Drop Period
You may withdraw from a course up until the last day of the thirteenth week of a fall or spring semester, until the ninth day in a winter session, and until the thirteenth day in a summer session. You will receive a final grade of "WD" if the withdrawal is completed in this time frame, which will not affect your grade point average (GPA). If you stop attending a class without submitting the Course Withdrawal Form, you will receive a "WF" grade, which will negatively impact your (GPA).
To officially withdraw from a course, you must submit a Course Withdrawal Form with the required signatures and last date of attendance, to the Registrar's Office in Feldman Center Room c158.
Important Information About Withdrawals
- Withdrawing may result in partial or full tuition and fees liability and/or a reduction or cancellation of your financial aid such as PELL, TAP, Excelsior, loans, etc. It is recommended you consult with a Financial Aid officer prior to withdrawing to learn how your withdrawals affect your awards. Click here for information on Financial Aid Withdrawals.
- Withdrawals will not be accepted after the semester deadline. Click here to review the Academic Calendar for withdrawal deadline dates for each semester.
- Withdrawing from course(s) does not relieve you of financial obligations to the college. Outstanding debts may be referred to a licensed collection agency and all collections fees may be added to the outstanding balance. If legal action becomes necessary, litigation and all court costs will be your responsibility to pay.
- Housing, financial aid, medical insurance, and auto insurance may be affected if dropping/withdrawing brings your total course load below 12 credits (full-time status).
- The course withdrawal process is student initiated. It is up to you to obtain all signatures and return each withdrawal form to the Registrar's Office for processing before the deadline, to ensure your withdrawal is made official.
- Understand how a course withdrawal may affect future registration because of pre-requisite and co-requisite requirements.
