Withdrawal Procedures

Students must consider that withdrawal from courses will negatively impact them from an educational and financial standpoint. Students who accrue excess hours in earning a degree may be subject to paying non-resident fees at a Florida public university. Bright Futures Scholarship students are required to re-pay the tuition for any course withdrawal. It is imperative that students discuss any intent to withdraw from a course with their advisor/counselor and instructor in order to avoid negative repercussions. Students may withdraw from any class and have a “W” recorded provided certain conditions are met:

  1. Individual class withdrawals must occur before the deadline noted in the Academic Calendar in the front of this catalog.
  2. Withdrawals from Special Registration classes must be completed prior to the final class meeting. A Special Registration class has beginning and ending dates that do not coincide with the beginning and ending dates for the regular term.
  3. A total withdrawal from all classes must occur before the deadline noted in the Academic Calendar in the front of this catalog. Official withdrawal forms are available at any IRSC campus.
  4. Withdrawals may not be completed for the third attempt in any college credit course. See the Withdrawal and Grade Forgiveness Policy noted in the previous section.
  5. Withdrawals may be done online at www.irsc.edu or in person at any IRSC campus. The withdrawal date is the date the withdrawal form or web entry is submitted.
  6. Students who do not attend class and who do not officially withdraw may receive a failing or unsatisfactory grade.
  7. Financial Aid and Veteran students should refer to IRSC’s Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress (available in the Financial Aid Office) and also to the Financial Aid section of this catalog for information regarding the return of Title IV funds.
