Students are expected to observe all policies governing a class. Faculty will clearly state the policies in the course syllabus each semester. A faculty member is eligible to involuntary withdraw a student after the mid-point if a student is in violation of one or more of the class policies (missed required assignments or excessive absences). A grade of “WF” will be assigned and is treated as an F for GPA calculation purposes. Students are responsible for withdrawing up to the semester mid-point deadline and be eligible for a grade of "W" unless the student has exceeded the limit of withdrawals (18 semester hours of course withdrawals). Faculty involuntary withdrawing a student after the mid-point must complete an Involuntary Withdrawal Form and submit for final approval by the Vice President for Academic Affairs. The Involuntary Withdrawal will be processed by the Office of the Registrar and the student and faculty member submitting request will be notified by FVSU e-mail. Students involuntary withdrawn are ineligible for a refund.
Withdrawal from the University
A student desiring to withdraw from Fort Valley State University must present him/herself to the Office of the Registrar. A student who withdraws from the university prior to the mid-point will receive a grade of “W” in all courses in which he/she is enrolled. A student who withdraws from the university after the mid-point will receive a grade of “WF”. Once the withdrawal has been initiated by the student, the student will have until the close of business the following day to stop the process. The email must be received before 5:00p.m. at Registrar1@fvsu.edu.
