The withdrawal deadline for the Spring 2017 semester at the University of Central Florida will be at 11:59 p.m. Wednesday night, March 22.

Before considering withdrawing from a course, or more than one course, evaluate how well you are performing in a class and the financial aid penalties that may come along with dropping a course. Scholarships may require a certain number of credit hours be achieved by the end of the academic year; some financial aid sources may require you to repay tuition from the dropped course. All of this information can be found on the UCF Financial Aid website.If you do not withdraw but fail to pass the course, grade forgiveness may be open to you, according to the Registrar’s Office.

If you do not withdraw but fail to pass the course, grade forgiveness may be open to you, according to the Registrar’s Office. Every student is given two grade forgiveness attempts at UCF, according to the Registrar’s Office.

Refer to the Registrar’s Office page on withdrawal frequently asked questions and policies, including Grade Forgiveness policies. According to the Registrar’s Office, grade forgiveness must be done during the semester that the desired repeated class is taken by the student. Using grade forgiveness for an attempt you are unsure whether you will pass by the end of the semester may hurt you. Grades that are forgiven will be replaced with the attempt used, whether the final grade for the subsequent attempt is a passing or failing grade or a withdrawal, according to the Registrar’s Office.

Both the grade forgiveness and withdrawal process can be started in your MyUCF Student Center from the drop-down menu at the top of the page.

All academic decisions must be your own – recommendations must be made between your college advising office and you.

The deadline for grade forgiveness will be Wednesday at 11:59 p.m.
