Withdrawal Procedures

Withdrawal from courses will negatively impact students both academically and financially. Students who accrue excess hours in earning a degree may be subject to paying additional fees at any Florida public university.

Bright Futures Scholarship students are required to repay the tuition for any course withdrawal.

Students are required to discuss any intent to withdraw from a course with their instructor in order to avoid negative repercussions and to explore how the course might be completed through various possible options.

Students may withdraw from any class and have a "W" recorded provided certain conditions are met:

  1. Student has completed the online survey requesting to withdraw from a course and discussed their desire to withdraw with their faculty member through a live meeting, online, or by phone.
  2. For Full Term and Express schedule classes, individual class withdrawals must occur before the deadline noted in the Academic Calendar.
  3. 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 of Full Term classes.
  4. A total withdrawal from all classes must occur before the deadline date noted in the Academic Calendar in this catalog. Official withdrawal forms are available at any IRSC campus.
  5. Withdrawals are not permitted for a student's third attempt in any college credit course. See the Withdrawal and Grade Forgiveness Policy.
  6. Individual class withdrawals may be completed at www.irsc.edu or in person at any IRSC campus. The official withdrawal date is the date the withdrawal form or web entry is submitted.
  7. Students who do not attend class and who do not officially withdraw may receive a failing or unsatisfactory grade.
  8. Financial Aid and Veteran students should refer to IRSC's Satisfactory Academic Progress for Financial Aid and Withdrawals - Return to Title IV .
