Student Handbook


The withdrawal period begins after late registration and add/drop ends. Students may withdraw from courses without a penalty until the date noted in the UCF Academic Calendar. The official date of withdrawal is the date the withdrawal is received by the University.

Withdrawing from classes may have financial aid, NCAA eligibility, or International Visa consequences. Students should seek appropriate advisement before withdrawing from a class.

A student may withdraw from courses through myUCF at, or by visiting the Registrar’s Office (Millican Hall 161), the college advising offices, or an area campus records office.

Students may withdraw by fax at 407-823-5652. Faxed requests must be received by 5 p.m. on the last day to withdraw and must include the student’s identification number, the course(s) to be dropped and his or her signature.

Students also may send a written request to the Registrar’s Office by mail (to P.O. Box 160114, Orlando, FL 32816-0114). Requests received by mail are processed using the postmark as the official date of withdrawal.

Students who desire to withdraw in person must sign their request and show photo identification.
