Full Term Withdrawal

The University allows full term withdrawals (i.e., students to withdraw from all classes within the current term and receive a grade of "W") until the last day of classes. A student desiring to withdraw from the University must complete the withdrawal process in BlazerNET.

Student Withdrawal 

The University is required to contract for a substantial amount of goods and services in advance.  Most of these expenses are fixed and are not subject to change on short notice.  Under certain circumstances, refunds are available to students who officially withdraw from the University.  

This policy applies to all terms including Fall and Spring semesters, Fall and Spring 7-week sessions, and Summer terms.  

If a student withdraws from all courses in a term, a portion of or all financial aid may be returned by the University to the original provider(s) of the funding.  In such cases where the return of funds creates a balance due to UAB, the student will be required to reimburse the University for those returned funds and any associated fees. 

The withdrawal refund schedule will dictate the amount of tuition refunded to the student when the student withdraws from all courses in a term.  Fees will not be refunded after the last day of the add/drop period. 

The withdrawal refund schedule can be located on the Academic Calendar.
