Dropping Courses after the Initial "Drop/Add" Period
The Heavener School of Business strictly adheres to UF drop and withdrawal policies and deadlines. To drop a course after the initial drop/add period, you must seek the assistance of an advisor in 233 Bryan Hall. You may petition the School of Business for additional drops only if you can document an extenuating circumstance that was beyond your control (i.e. personal injury or illness, a natural disaster, death in the family).
Advice on Dropping Classes
When deciding whether or not to drop a course, you should first fully evaluate your situation. The following guidelines can help you with the decision-making process:
- Determine the grades you have earned in the course so far.
- Review your course syllabus for grading policies and the grading scale.
- Calculate the number of points you need to obtain the desired grade.
- Talk to your professor (and/or TA) to get an opinion on your chances for achieving the desired grade.
- Consult with a financial aid advisor (S107 Criser) to determine the financial consequences for dropping the course.
- Contact your academic advisor to request to drop the course and discuss the consequences for dropping the course, strategies and alternatives to dropping, resource options, and ways to improve your future chances for academic success.
Withdraw from a Semester
If circumstances require you to withdraw from the entire semester, or if you are failing all or most of your classes, seek the advice of a School of Business advisor in 233 Bryan Hall. Withdrawing from an entire semester does not require the use of your two "free" drops.
Adding Courses after the Initial "Drop/Add" Period
For assistance with the late addition of a School of Business electronic platform course during the first two weeks of the semester, see an advisor in 233 Bryan Hall. To late add any other courses, you must have the permission of the instructor and/or department who offers the course, as well as approval from an advisor in 233 Bryan Hall.
