TUITION AND FEE REFUND APPEALS
If you experienced extraordinary events during a semester that caused you to be academically unsuccessful during that term, you may be eligible for a one-time tuition refund appeal.
Effective September 22, 2014, appeal requests must be made within 90 days of the end of the semester which you are appealing and must include appropriate supporting documentation.
Appeals older than 90 days or those submitted without supporting documentation will not be reviewed.
There are significant academic and financial consequences that may result when a tuition refund appeal is granted. If you have financial aid for the semester you are appealing, you may have to return the financial aid received in full if you are approved.
Extraordinary events include serious illness of the student or an immediate family member, death of an immediate family member, military deployment that was not previously scheduled, or another similar unforeseen event.
The University will approve a refund appeal for one semester only during your entire academic career at UT Arlington. This includes all voluntary and involuntary separations. In particular, if the event is related to a medical condition, then it is your responsibility to make an informed decision, which may require 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 you will not be granted a second tuition and fee refund, you may have the opportunity to withdraw from coursework with a grade of W or Q in future semesters, assuming you meet all appropriate deadlines and regulations related to withdrawal.
Decisions by the appeals committee are final.
Military Deployment: If you are requesting a Tuition and Fee Refund due to Military Deployment, please email firstname.lastname@example.org from your MyMav email address. Please include your MyMav Id number, name, and the courses you wish to be refunded, and attach your deployment papers. Deployment papers for Active Duty must be provided and must state Active Duty, not training. Be sure to speak with the Financial Aid Office or Military and Veteran Services before requesting a refund.
