Students enrolled in an FSI course may only drop the course after an advising conversation with Dean Khristina Gonzalez ([email protected]) and/or Dr. Andy Hakim ([email protected]), and their Residential College Dean or Assistant Dean. Students will not be able to drop the course through TigerHub. Instead, they will need to receive the approval of FSI staff and, if applicable, their dean or assistant dean, who will sign a course enrollment worksheet and process it with the Registrar.
