    You are responsible for arranging payments on your student account to UA Little Rock or ensuring your balance is paid in full.

    NOTE: If term enrollment dates overlap, the VA Regional Office adds the credit hours from the terms together during the overlapping period(s) to calculate your eligibility.

    If you decide not to attend UA Little Rock for any term, you must withdraw from all classes through the UA Little Rock Office of Records and Registration by 4:00 pm at the end of the 100% refund period by the specific date(s) per term to receive a full adjustment of charges.

    Even if you stop attending class, you still have an obligation to withdraw accordingly, because if you are still registered in classes after the 100% drop date, you are liable for charges.
