WITHDRAWAL FROM COURSES
Withdrawal from courses can only be accomplished using official
procedures. The official withdrawal form must be completed
by the student, signed by the instructor if necessary, and must be
returned to the Office of Registration and Academic Records. This
office will date/time stamp the form and return a copy along with
a computerized receipt. These documents should be carefully
retained by the student. The date printed on the receipt is the official
date of withdrawal.
In extraordinary circumstances, if it is impossible for the student
to obtain an official withdrawal form, the student may mail a withdrawal
letter to the Office of Registration and Academic Records.
The official date of withdrawal will be the date the letter is
received in this office.
Failure to attend class does not constitute a formal drop or withdrawal.
For financial aid purposes, the date of last class attendance
will be the official date of withdrawal unless otherwise documented.

ADJUSTMENT OF CHARGES
On the academic calendar for each term, there is a date designated
“last day to withdraw from classes without paying full
tuition.” The student’s residency status on that day determines the
tuition rate incurred for that term. If a student officially withdraws
from all courses prior to 5:00 p.m. on that date, all course related
tuition and fees will be canceled. However, other fees previously
assessed for services provided, fees assessed based on registration
commitments and the fee for withdrawal ($20.00) will remain due
and payable by the published deadline. (Consult the current term
UAB Class Schedule for specific fees.) If a student withdraws after
that date, total tuition and fees are due and no refunds can be
made (except in cases where a licensed physician certifies that the
student is incapable of continuing with the course because of a
serious medical condition which arose after the above date).
Students withdrawn for disciplinary reasons or for nonpayment
of fees are ineligible for refunds or cancellation of charges due.
