Refunds When Withdrawing from UALR

Students voluntarily withdrawing from UALR must complete the University Withdrawal Form and have an exit interview with a staff member in the Office of Financial Aid if receiving financial aid. Withdrawal forms are available in the Office of Records and Registration. The last day to officially withdraw from the University without a grade penalty is listed in the Academic Calendar and on the UALR website. Students who fail to officially withdraw will be reported as having failed the course work for the semester, and grades of F will appear on their official transcripts. Students who have questions about withdrawing should contact the Office of Records and Registration.

Notes:

  1. Non-attendance does not constitute a withdrawal.
  2. An official withdrawal does not penalize or prevent a student from re-enrolling at a future date.

Students who officially withdraw from UALR (withdrawal from all classes) during a regular fall or spring semester are entitled to a refund of instructional fees in accordance with the following schedule:

Semester 100% 50%
Sixteen week courses (Fall & Spring) First through the fifth class day Sixth through the tenth class day
Ten to twelve week courses First through the fifth class day Sixth through the tenth class day
Seven to nine week courses First through the third class day Fourth through the seventh class day
Five or six week courses First and second class day Third through the fifth class day
One to four week courses Prior to start of classes N/A

To avoid charges for a summer term, a registered student must officially withdraw from all classes prior to the first day of classes for that term. Students who reduce their course load by dropping one or more courses may or may not be entitled to a reduction in charges.

Refund schedules for current terms may be found in the UALR Bursar’s Office.

Tax-Deductible Educational Expenses

The cost of college educational expenses may be deductible on an individual’s federal income tax return if classes are taken:

  • To maintain or improve the skills required in the individual’s trade or business, or required in performing a present job
  • To meet the specific requirements of an employer or the requirements of law for retention of present employment, salary, or status
  • Such that the criteria for the American Opportunity Credit or the Lifetime Learning Credit are met

These credits can be applied to tax returns if the student meets the eligibility requirements.

This section should not be construed as tax advice. Students should consult a tax advisor or contact the local office of the Internal Revenue Service.

Responsibility of Tuition and Fee Payment

By enrolling in classes at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, a student makes a financial commitment to pay the tuition and fee charges associated with that enrollment. Students withdrawing after the stated refund dates remain liable for full tuition and fee charges. Collection costs incurred in the event of delinquency shall be at the expense of the borrower, at a rate not to exceed 33.3% of the balance owed. Although the university accepts payment via student financial aid and third party sponsorship, the responsibility for payment remains with the student. If financial aid is not granted or if third party sponsors do not pay within a reasonable period, the student will be required to pay the full amount due.
