Drop/Add Period and Withdrawal Rates
Once enrolled in a semester, students are allowed to make certain changes to their course schedule and/or housing plans. Students who are registered for classes and decide not to attend have the responsibility to cancel their registration or initiate withdrawal by following the Withdrawal and Drop Policy. Nonattendance does not constitute a formal drop or withdrawal.
Dropping a course (often times referred to as course withdrawal) refers to dropping from an individual course. A student may still be enrolled after a course has been dropped. A withdrawal is when the student withdraws from all courses and is no longer enrolled for that semester.
The sections below will help explain the rates of the appropriate action you may be seeking. If you should have any questions in regards to rate amounts prior to making any changes or withdrawing, please contact Cashier’s Office at 205-665-6065.
*It is recommended to read the sections in which you are seeking to perform before reviewing the rates as they may or may not apply to your selection.
Drop/Add deadlines are published in the University Calendar. It is the student’s responsibility to initiate drop/add procedures. Students may drop and add courses after they have registered and until the drop/add deadline. Students who drop a class on or before the deadline stated but remains enrolled will receive a 100% refund of tuition and fees for that class. Students who drop a class the day after the deadline but remains enrolled are required to pay 100% of tuition and fees for that course (no refund).
Non-Payment Withdrawal Rates
Students who are registered for classes and decide not to attend have the responsibility to cancel classes before the first day of the relevant term. Nonattendance does not constitute cancellation or withdrawal as you may still owe a balance depending on your student account. If any student have not paid his/her student account by first day of term you will be contacted via UM email, text, and/or phone during drop for non-payment period before being dropped from all courses. If you are dropped for non-payment, you will be considered a non-payment withdrawal. Your tuition will be partially refunded and no fees are refunded.
Note: If you are registered for more than one summer term and you are dropped for non-payment during your first summer term registered, you may be withdrawn from all other summer terms enrolled.
Course Withdrawal (Tuition and Fees) Rates
Students intending to withdraw from the semester/term prior to the withdrawal deadline must submit to the Registrar’s Office a withdrawal form signed by Student Aid Office. Students receiving financial aid should consult the Office of Student Aid to determine the effect the withdrawal may have on their financial aid. Students residing on campus should notify the Office of Housing and Residence Life of their intent to withdraw and must check out of the residence hall within 24 hours of withdrawal. Completion of these procedures results in official withdrawal from the term at the University, and a grade of “W” is recorded for each course. Please review the Withdrawal and Drop Policy further if you are considering to withdraw from the University.
Please contact Cashier’s Office if you have questions in regards to your student account balance prior to withdrawing, as you may be responsible for some or all of the tuition and fees for your classes depending on when you withdraw.
Students who officially withdraw during the fall, spring, and summer terms will be assessed tuition and fee adjustments according to the Course Refund Withdrawal Rate Schedule.
Note: University of Montevallo’s cancellations and withdrawals rates are based on calendar days/weeks.
Housing Changes/Cancellation/Withdrawal Rates
Room and Board changes and withdrawal calculations are based on the date of change or check out from Housing and Residence Life. If you are no longer interested in residing in housing or having a board plan you must contact the Housing Office at 205-665-6235. Please refer to the Residence Hall Handbook for housing cancellation/withdrawal policy.
Room and board will be adjusted on a pro rata basis in units of one week. A partial week will be counted as one full week. Any room and/or board changes, cancellations, or withdrawals will be assessed and adjusted according to Housing/Changes Withdrawal Rate Schedule.
