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 semester must withdraw from all classes on the student registration system or notify the Office of the Registrar in writing. Withdrawal may occur anytime during the semester 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.

A currently enrolled student who has registered during the advance registration period should make any necessary or desired schedule adjustments such as adding or dropping courses or changing course sections during the schedule-adjustment period of the same semester. Students who drop classes will have their fees adjusted according to Fayetteville Policies and Procedures 330.0 – Tuition and Fee Adjustment Policy for Dropping Classes. Drops and withdrawals are two different functions. In a drop process, the student remains enrolled. The result of the withdrawal process is that the student is no longer enrolled for the term. Fee adjustment deadlines for an official withdrawal are noted in Fayetteville Policies and Procedures 518.0 – Tuition and Fee Adjustment Policy for Official Withdrawal.
