Withdrawal from the University
Withdrawing from the University of Arkansas means withdrawing from all classes that have not been completed up to that time. A student who leaves the university voluntarily before the end of the fall or spring term must withdraw from all classes through UAConnect or notify the Office of the Registrar in writing. Withdrawal may occur anytime during the term through the last day of classes. Withdrawal deadlines for summer sessions are listed on the semester calendars located on the Office of the Registrar’s website. Students who do not withdraw officially from a class they fail to complete will receive an “F” in that class. Students with holds on their registration should contact the Office of the Registrar for assistance in processing their official withdrawal from the university.
The deadline for a full fee adjustment for an official withdrawal is the day before the start of classes for that term. After that date a $45.00 withdrawal fee will be charged and a percentage of the fees will be refunded through the fourth week of class for a full session. Refer to the Treasurer's Office website for the deadlines and percentages for all sessions. Additional questions concerning fees should be directed to the Student Accounts Office. The telephone number is 479-575-5651 and the address is:
213 Arkansas Union
University of Arkansas
Fayetteville, AR 72701
The official date of withdrawal will be based upon the day that the last class was dropped. See Academic Calendar for specific deadlines.
If you fail to follow the official withdrawal procedures, you will receive the grade of "F" for each class you were enrolled in but failed to complete. See Calendars for the deadline for withdrawing from the university.
REMEMBER: Failure to attend a class will not drop you from the class. If you do not completely process a drop by the guidelines listed here, you will be given an "F" grade unless you make arrangements with your instructor to receive an "Incomplete" for the course.
Fall and Spring
Log into UAConnect and click on the Manage Classes tile, then click on the Enroll link on the left and select the Drop tab.
An Official Withdrawal withdraws you from all classes for all sessions that have not been completed. To withdraw from a summer session while remaining enrolled in other sessions for the summer, you must contact the Registrar's Office at 575-5451. The official withdrawal deadline is the "last day of classes for the session". Withdrawal on the last day of class requires a letter from the instructor of each class indicating that the student did not take the final exam. It cannot be done online. If you fail to follow the official withdrawal procedures, you will receive the grade of "F" for each class you were enrolled in but failed to complete. See Semester Calendars for the deadline for withdrawing from the university.
