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

  • Students wishing to withdraw and avoid financial obligation must do so by 11:59 p.m. August 21, 2018.
  • Fall Term 2018: First Day of Class is August 22, 2018.
  • Withdrawals before the first official University class day may be done through MyMav.

Withdrawals ON or AFTER August 22, 2018

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

All students withdrawing for any reason on or after August 22, 2018, 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 may be reported to National Credit Bureaus and subject to additional fees and collection efforts, as allowed by law.

Dropping course(s) and remaining enrolled

Drop refers to dropping course/s and 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 tuition rates, not every drop will result in a credit to your account. For example, the mandatory tuition and fees between 12 and 15 hours for both undergraduate and graduate resident students is the same dollar amount. As a result, a student who drops from 15 to 12 hours will not see a credit to their account. 

No refunds will be credited and the student is financially responsible for the full cost of the course/s dropped after September 07, 2018 for Fall 2018 Session.
