U of A to Change Drop/Withdrawal Tuition and Fee Adjustment Schedule

Self-Paced Online Courses
Students who wish to drop a Self-Paced Online Course must notify the Office of Credit Studies in writing. In most cases, students cannot drop themselves from a Self-Paced Online Course using the University's student information system. Drop requests must be made via email from the student's University of Arkansas email account and sent to drop@uark.edu, and the date of the email will be used to determine any applicable fee adjustments and what grade, if any, will appear on the student's official record. See the Self-Paced Online Course Calendar for details, including the last day for students to drop without a "W" (representing withdrawn) assigned and the last day to drop with a "W" assigned.
