Spring Term 2014

Refunds for Academic Partnership students do not follow the same timetable as students attending regular academic sessions. Academic Partnership students must visit and are responsible for understanding the policies and requirements unique to this program.

Winter Intersession and Regular Spring Session

UT Arlington recommends Direct Deposit for refunds of registration charges. It is the most secure, reliable and convenient method for receiving your money.

It is the student's responsibility to officially withdraw if they do not plan to attend after registering. Students will not be automatically dropped for non-attendance.

Repayment of certain types of financial aid administered through the University may be required as the result of dropping classes or withdrawing. Contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.

Withdrawal PRIOR TO the first official University class day

Withdrawal refers to dropping all classes and no longer being enrolled for the session.

  • Winter Intersession: First Day of Class is December 17, 2013.
  • Spring Term 2014 (Regular Session): First Day of Class is January 13, 2014.
  • Withdrawals before the first official University class day may be done through MyMav.

Withdrawals ON or AFTER the Session First Class Day

All students withdrawing for any reason on or after the first class day of the session, are financially responsible for their pro-rata share of tuition, fees, and charges. Section 54.006 of the Texas Education Code dictates the refund and collection percentages that apply to withdrawing students.

Students who withdraw with financial responsibility and subsequently fail to pay tuition, fees and charges will be reported to National Credit Bureaus and subject to additional fees and collection efforts, as allowed by law.

Dropping Course(s) and Remaining Enrolled

Dropping courses refers to dropping a course/s but still being enrolled in at least one class for the session.

Students who drop a course/s while remaining enrolled in the session are refunded in full for drops completed by the published refund drop date. However, because of the tiered flat rate tuition rates, not every drop will result in a credit to your account. For example, a student who is taking 15 hours and drops to 12 hours will not see a credit to their flat rate tuition amount because 12 hours costs the same as 15 hours (see Flat Rate Fee Schedule). No refunds will be credited and the student is financially responsible for the full cost of the course/s dropped after December 18, 2013 for Winter Intersession or January 29, 2014 for Regular Spring Session.
