General Information

Dropping Courses

  • After drop/add, you can request to drop or add a course up to the deadline listed in the academic calendar.
  • A grade of W will appear on the transcript for each approved drop, and you are liable for all course tuition and fees.
  • All drops after drop/add are subject to the following restrictions:
    • Students get two drops in their first 60 credits attempted at UF (credits carried plus S/U credits and repeats of satisfactory grades; full-term withdrawals from all courses and dropped courses do not count in credits carried).
    • Students get two additional drops in the second 60 credits. Unused drops do not carry over from the freshman/sophomore years to the junior/senior years.
    • Students with disabilities who need to drop a course due to disability-related reasons are allowed to petition for additional drops. More informations is available from the Disability Resource Center.
    • Students transferring to UF with an A.A. degree from a Florida public community college or with 60 or more transfer credits earned from another college or university get only two drops.
    • Students who can document extenuating circumstances may petition their college for additional drops.
    • Approval to drop or add a course must be obtained from your college.
    • UF's tuition refund policy is published in the UF Undergraduate Catalog.

Contact the offices of Student Financial Affairs and University Bursar to discuss the impact of dropping a course on your financial obligations.



Bright Futures and Dropped Courses

If you drop a course or courses after the drop/add period, you must repay the amount you were funded for the dropped class or classes. The student must repay UF, which will in turn remit the funds to the Florida Department of Education.
