Refunds

Refund Information

Drop activity will prevent refunds from releasing for four days from your latest drop activity. A “Do Not Generate Refunds” hold will appear on your student account. This hold is system generated and will release automatically four days after your most recent drop activity. No action is required on your part.

UTA recommends Direct Deposit for refunds of registration charges. If a direct deposit is sent to a closed bank account, it will be returned to UTA. Within two days after the refund has been returned, UTA will process a paper check that will be mailed to the Mailing Address listed in your MyMav account. Please ensure that your Direct Deposit bank account and Mailing Address are up to date.

Whenever possible, refunds from a payment made by a credit card will be refunded back to that credit card. 

To view the status of your refund:

1. Sign in to your MyMav Homepage.

2. Once logged in, click on the Accounts tile.

3. Click on Refund in the left sidebar.

4. Review and edit your Mailing Address in the Personal Information section of your MyMav Account. A domestic (USA) mailing address is required for timely processing of refunds. Your refund check will be mailed to the address under the Mailing Address unless you have set up Direct Deposit. An address must be active before a check is printed.

Institutions of higher education are required to check with the Texas Comptroller's office for certain debt(s) owed to the state prior to releasing refunds. Debt(s) owed to the state can have an impact on the refund amount, as well as the processing time required for delivery. For further information, please visit the Comptroller's website.

Withdrawal refers to dropping all classes and no longer being enrolled in the session.
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 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 the following dates:

Questions should be directed to Student Accounts at (817) 272-2172. Detailed student account information may not be released to anyone other than the student without the student's written permission on file in Student Accounts.

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.

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. To read more about the process for dropping a class, visit Implications of Dropping a Class.
