Course Withdrawal

After registration, you can make adjustments to your course schedule by adding, dropping or withdrawing from classes.

During Add/Drop Period*
You may make program changes (add/drop) in person or by using MyFIT during the scheduled registration period through the last day of Add/Drop. Once your initial registration is processed, a $25 add/drop fee is charged each time you adjust your schedule in person. If you use MyFIT to change your schedule, the add/drop fee will not be charged.

After Add/Drop Period*
You can withdraw from a course with a final grade of WD by submitting a Course Withdrawal Form. Your course instructor must sign the form and it is to be returned to the Registration Center, in Business and Liberal Arts Center Room B103.

Before Dropping or Withdrawing from a Course:
  • Be sure it won’t affect future registration because of prerequisite requirements.
  • Note - housing, financial aid (especially TAP), medical and auto insurance may be affected if dropping/withdrawing brings your total course load below 12 credits (full-time status).

*For specific add/drop/withdrawal dates by semester, see Academic Calendar.

If you wish to withdraw from the school (drop all classes), see Withdrawing from the College
