Courses and Requirements
The University of Arkansas Treasurer’s Office sets the dates for tuition/fee refunds in accordance with University of Arkansas policy. Since the Operations Management program uses a system of two 8-week sessions (known to you as terms) within the full semester, the refund policy can be very confusing. A full semester includes both 8-week sessions in fall or spring.
If you are considering dropping a class in an 8-week session and/or withdrawing, we advise you to call the Treasurer’s Office at 479-575-5651 to determine any refund you may or may not receive. It is also important to note there is a difference between dropping a class and withdrawing, and the refund schedule is different for both; withdrawing refers to dropping ALL classes in a semester, not just an individual class or classes in an 8-week session.
The refund schedule is posted on the Office of the Registrar’s website. Be sure to look for the 8-week schedule (8-week one & 8-week two for Spring and Fall semesters) notifications within the full semester schedule, since there are different dates (a full semester schedule is twice as long as an 8 week session schedule). Once again, we highly suggest you speak with the Treasurer’s Office to determine your refund. If you are considering dropping a class, please do so BEFORE the first day of any 8-week session to ensure a full refund.
