How to Avoid Out-of-State Tuition
Because of various university policies, you must be concerned about the number of classes that you drop.
If you entered Fall 2006, or later, you only have a 30-hour cushion. Transfer students must remember that this requirement applies to all credit hours attempted at any publicly-funded Texas institution, including courses with a grade of D, F, or W as well as courses serving as a grade replacement and courses that have been grade replaced or grade excluded. (Credit hours earned at a private or an out-of-state institution are not counted toward the limit. Some other exceptions may apply.)
Therefore, you may not have any room to take anything but required courses and you may have to pass every course that you take.
Refund Reinstatement Appeals
If a student has documentation that substantiates an extraordinary event and an appeal for a “Tuition and Fee Refund” is approved, the student must understand that the University is only able to approve a refund appeal for one semester during the entire academic career at UT Arlington (includes all voluntary and involuntary separations). In particular, if the event is related to a medical condition, it is the student’s responsibility to make an informed decision (which may require a consultation with a physician) prior to enrolling in future coursework since an appeal is granted on a one-time basis for a given medical condition. While a student may not be granted a second “Tuition and Fee Refund” the student may have the opportunity to withdraw from coursework with a grade of W in future semesters assuming the student meets all appropriate deadlines and regulations related to withdrawal.
