Important Information for Students

  • “Drop” and Withdrawal Deadline Extensions. To give students more time to decide with instructors if they wish to “drop” an individual class or withdraw from all classes, the deadlines for “drop” and withdrawal have been moved to the following dates:

    • For full spring 2020 term: Monday, May 4, 5 p.m.

    • For second nine-week (920) term: Friday, May 1, 5 p.m.

(After the first week of classes, withdrawal from any course will result in a W on a student’s final transcript. Students deciding to withdraw from a course or the entire term should also be mindful of financial aid implications.)

  • Expanded CR/NC (Credit/No Credit) Grading Option. Learn more about the policy through this Student FAQ (Note that these programs will not be offering CR/NC).

  • Student Micro-Grants and Care Team. The Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships, in partnership with the UA Little Rock Care Team, announced new funding available for current students who have been severely affected by the COVID-19 outbreak. Students may submit a self-referral at http://bit.ly/CTself-referral or through BOSS using the Student Services tab and selecting “Request Student Support.”
