Please use the COE Course Drop/Add Request Form on https://www.eng.famu.fsu.edu/sites/default/files/pdfs/CourseDropAddRequestForm-v21.pdf if you are trying to add a course that requires instructor/departmental permission (i.e. closed courses, pre-requisites not recognized, etc.). Once the form has been signed by the instructor and/or the Department Chair/Designee, the form can be emailed to studentsupport@eng.famu.fsu.edu or dropped off in COE Suite B111 (Student Services Office) to be processed.

Other academic forms (i.e. Time Conflict Override Form, etc.) can be found on https://www.eng.famu.fsu.edu/students/forms.

Additional information: it is the student's responsibility to be aware of the prerequisites for any engineering course in which he or she is enrolled. Failure to satisfy course prerequisites may result in cancellation of your course enrollment at any time during the semester with no refund of tuition or fees. To avoid any fee liability, it is the student's responsibility to drop the course on or before the Drop/Add Deadline.

Deadline to drop/withdraw from a course:

Note: this summer deadline policy is different than the regular semester course drop/withdrawal policy. Please refer to the Student Guide for the regular semester course drop/withdrawal policy.
