Tuition Refund and Withdrawal Policy

Students officially withdrawing may be eligible for a refund calculated as a percentage of tuition.  Such refunds are determined according to the schedule below.  Special fees are not refundable.  Refund of housing deposits and overpayment of rental fees are made after the occupant has checked out of University Housing and after all Housing Policy requirements have been met.  See UAMS Academic Catalog for more information

Students officially withdrawing from the Physician Assistant Program during any semester shall be entitled to a refund of tuition as follows:


 Withdrawal From Semester Start Date

Refund of Tuition

Within 1 – 5 days – 100%

 Within 6  – 10 days – 50%

 After 10 days – 0%

The date a student files a completed Application for Official Withdrawal at the Dean’s Office determines the amount of refund.  An Application for Official Withdrawal is not considered complete without all necessary signatures.  Failure to withdraw officially from a course will adversely affect grades on official transcripts.

If Student Financial Services receives an authorized refund request for payment of tuition and fees, the following schedule is used:

  • If payment was made by check, the refund will not be processed until 30 days from the date the check was deposited.
  • If payment was made by credit card, the refund will be processed within 24 hours provided the student furnishes credit card information.
  • For all other forms of payment, the refund will be processed within 24 hours.
