Generally, students will not be charged tuition and fees for classes officially dropped prior to the published drop deadline each term. All tuition and fee payments may be refunded for the credit hours and fees associated with each class dropped before or during this period. The deadline for dropping classes without incurring charges is published each term in the UAB Academic Calendar.

Students who completely withdraw from school on or after the first day of the term will be charged a $30.00 withdrawal fee.


Any credit balance resulting from a change in course load during the drop/add period will be distributed in accordance with the Order of Return of Title IV Funds Policy.
