Withdrawal from courses can only be accomplished by using official procedures as explained in the section Course Enrollment: Withdrawing from Courses.
Failure to attend class does not constitute a formal withdrawal.
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 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Students withdrawn for disciplinary reasons or for nonpayment of fees are ineligible for refunds or cancellation of charges due.
The Academic Common Market is an interstate agreement among selected Southern states for sharing academic programs at both the baccalaureate and graduate levels. Participating states are able to make arrangements for their residents who qualify for admission to enroll in specific programs in other states on an in-state tuition basis. Participating states are Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.
A student who is not an Alabama resident who wishes to enroll at UAB as an Academic Common Market student must be accepted for admission into a UAB program to which the student's home state has obtained access for its residents through the Academic Common Market coordinator in that state.
Certification of eligibility must be received by the Graduate School before the first day of class in the initial quarter of registration to obtain in-state tuition status for the entire program; otherwise, in-state tuition status will be awarded beginning with the term following receipt of certification.
To obtain the name and address of a state coordinator, contact the UAB Graduate School, Hill University Center, Room 511, 1400 University Boulevard, Birmingham, Alabama 35294-1150, telephone (205) 934-8227, or visit the Academic Common Market web site at http://www.cep.unt.edu/ACM.html.
