Registration Appeals

Administrative Drop Appeal

Please click on the link to download a copy of the Administrative Drop Appeal form to submit to the Question & Answer Center.

Submission Deadline: Before the last day of the semester in which the course is taken.

Daytona State College indicates in the Academic Calendar the last day to drop from a course(s) to receive a refund**. A request to drop a course(s) will be considered only in the event of documented extenuating circumstance and indicate a serious personal situation that prevented the student from completing and/or dropping the course(s) by the add/drop deadline.

To All Financial Aid Recipients: A student who has received financial aid will owe a repayment resulting from the recalculation of enrollment status, or if this appeal results in a drop from all courses, a student will be subject to the federal refund formula calculations and/or the requirement that all financial aid funds be returned. In most cases the result will be a balance due for tuition and fees. A student who received a financial aid refund, or received a book voucher, will have to return all funds disbursed prior to the drop being processed if the appeal is approved. Please verify with Financial Aid the impact on your request prior to submission.

4th (Final) Attempt Appeal

Please click on the link to download a copy of the 4th (Final) Attempt Appeal form to submit to the Question & Answer Center.

Submission Deadline: Before the end of the add/drop period of the semester in which the course(s) will be taken.

Per Florida Administrative Code 6A-14.0301, the State of Florida does not allow a student to enroll into a college preparatory course or college credit course at the same institution a fourth time unless an appeal is approved due to documented major extenuating circumstances that occurred during the third attempt. Students will be assessed 100 percent of the full cost of instruction (equivalent to non-Florida resident tuition charges) on the fourth attempt. There is no appeal for the reduction of cost for a fourth attempt and students are not permitted to withdraw. A fifth attempt is not allowed under any circumstance. 

Grade Change from “F/FN” to “W” Appeal

Please click on the link to download a copy of the Grade Change from “F/FN” to “W” Appeal form to submit to the Question & Answer Center.

Submission Deadline: for this type of appeal is the last day of the semester of the next major semester after the course(s) was taken. 

Students who register for a class and do not withdraw, or for students who cease attending a class, usually receive an “F” or an “FN” grade depending on the last date of participation.  In cases with documented major extenuating circumstances, the college may approve an appeal requesting the grade of “F” or “FN” be changed to a “W” with the permission of the instructor and/or department chair.  Appeals of this nature may be forwarded to the academic area for review and action. Students who have received financial aid will be reviewed to insure all federal Title IV refund regulations are applied based upon the grade and last date of attendance previously reported by the faculty member. 

In-State Tuition for 3rd Attempt Appeal

Please click on the link to download a copy of the In-State Tuition for 3rd Attempt Appeal form to submit to the Question & Answer Center.

Submission deadline: for this type of appeal is before the end of the add/drop period of the semester in which the course(s) will be taken.

Students are permitted to enroll into the same college preparatory course or college credit course a maximum of three (3) times at the same college or institution (a withdraw also counts as an attempt). Students will be assessed 100 percent of the full cost of instruction (equivalent to non-Florida resident tuition charges) on the third attempt unless the college grants a one-time exception to the student due to documented major extenuating circumstances during the second attempt, or financial hardship (including need-based financial aid eligibility) for the semester in question. Students may not withdraw from a third or fourth attempt and will receive a letter grade other than “W.” 

Late Withdrawal Appeal

Please click on the link to download a copy of the Late Withdrawal Appeal form to submit to the Question & Answer Center.

Submission Deadline: for this type of appeal is before grades are posted for the semester in which the course(s) was taken.

Daytona State College indicates in the Academic Calendar the last day to withdraw from a class without grade penalty. Once this date has passed, the student must receive a grade as determined by the instructor. The issuance of a “W” grade for a withdrawal after the deadline can be approved only if there are documented major extenuating circumstances that warrant a variation of the standard policy. Appeals of this nature may be forwarded to the academic area for review and action. Students who have received financial aid will be reviewed to insure all federal Title IV refund regulations are applied based upon last date of attendance on the Academic Calendar.
