Residency Status for Fee Purposes

A student’s residency status for fee purposes is determined at the time of admission according to the policy established by the University of Arkansas Board of Trustees. Copies of the residency policy and petitions for change of residency status are available upon request from the Office of the Registrar. Petitions are reviewed by the Registrar and must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar no later than the last date to register for the semester or term for which the change is desired.

Payment of Accounts

All charges are due and payable in advance to the Cashier’s Office. Cashier’s office hours are 8:30 a.m.-4:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. At the time of registration, student accounts must be paid in full or arrangements made for full payment. The University offers the FACTS plan as a convenient method of tuition payment management. The FACTS plan provides a low cost option for budgeting tuition and other educational expenses. Students with unpaid accounts will not be eligible for transcripts or readmission to any semester or term until all accounts are paid in full. Personal checks will be accepted from students with no record of returned checks. A charge of $25 will be assessed for returned checks, and the student will be subject to revocation of registration.

NOTE: By enrolling in classes, either at early registration or regular registration, the student creates a financial liability in the amount of the tuition, fees, and any other charges pertinent to the enrollment process. The only way this financial liability can be eliminated is by payment from the student or his/her agent or formal cancellation of the enrollment by the student before the semester or term begins. Failure to attend class (es) does not reduce this liability. Failure to receive financial aid does not reduce this liability. Students must withdraw from the University in person or by written communication. The process for withdrawal can be found elsewhere in the Academic Regulations  section of this catalog.
