To Whom It May Concern My name is Ahmad Farhat; I am a Florida State University student majoring in Electrical Engineering. I am studying in the U.S. with an F-1 international student visa. In the fall of 2011 I changed my major from Computer Engineering to Electrical Engineering. As result of this change, a class in which I was enrolled, Object Oriented Programing (COP3330), became unnecessary, as it is a Computer Engineering class not required for Electrical Engineering students. This change of major took place before the end of the course drop deadline. However, as an F-1 International Student, I am required to be enrolled full time, which is defined as 12 credit hours. When I tried to drop the class like any other student, I could not because my total credit hours at the time was 14, and by dropping the COP3330 class, I would have ended up with only 11 credit hours.

After talking to The Division of Student Affairs Center for Global Engagement, I was told that the only way to drop the class without getting into trouble with immigration is to drop the class retroactively. Clearly, as an engineering student, GPA is quite important for success after graduation. Last semester I worked hard in my other classes, finishing with three As and two Bs. However, my GPA has obviously suffered due to the F that I received in COP3330, because of my inability to officially drop the course during the semester. I am asking for your help in addressing this issue; since a retroactive drop is my only option, I hope that you will consider my request for you attention to this matter. Regards, Ahmad Farhat...
