Parking Fees

Every student who parks a motorized vehicle on the main UA Little Rock campus is required to register that vehicle with the Department of Public Safety and display a parking permit as instructed. Commuter Parking Permits are available at $40 per semester.

Reserved parking fees are $165.00 annually for twenty-four-hour access. Lot choices are numbers 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 9, and the lower level of the parking deck. Reserved parking is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Reserved parking may be arranged at the Department of Public Safety. Students are also allowed to park in the metered lots or UA Little Rock’s parking deck. The fee for parking in the meter lots is $1.00 per hour with a 2-hour time limit, and the fee for the parking deck is $1.00 per exit.

Payments

Bursar Office

The Cashier’s Office provides billing, receipting, and cashiering functions for student tuition and fees to assure accurate, timely, and effective service to students, as well as providing receipting and prepayment functions for the University departments. We also distribute payroll and accounts payable checks and request and disburse all travel advance checks. You can contact the Cashier’s Office at (501) 916-5540 or cashiers@ualr.edu.

The Student Accounts Office provides student billing, third-party sponsorship posting, tuition discounts, and collection processes. You can contact the Student Accounts Office at (501) 916-3450 or studentaccounts@ualr.edu.

Refunds When Withdrawing from UA Little Rock

Students voluntarily withdrawing from UA Little Rock must complete the University Withdrawal Form to officially update their educational records. Those students receiving financial aid will need an exit interview with a staff member in the Office of Financial Aid and Scholarships. The last day to officially withdraw from the University without a grade penalty is listed in the Academic Calendar. Students who fail to officially withdraw will be reported as having failed the coursework for the semester, and grades of F will appear on their official transcripts. Students who have questions about withdrawing should contact the Office of Records and Registration.

 

Any student who withdraws or drops before the first day of class will be refunded at 100%. Note: programs that have Board approved special refund policies will supersede this policy

Notes:

  1. Non-attendance does not constitute a withdrawal.
  2. An official withdrawal does not penalize or prevent a student from re-enrolling at a future date.

Students who officially withdraw from UA Little Rock (withdrawal from all classes) during a regular fall or spring semester are entitled to an adjustment of tuition and fees per the following schedule:

Semester 100%
Sixteen-week courses (Fall & Spring) First through the tenth class day
Ten to twelve-week courses First through the tenth class day
Seven to nine-week courses First through the seventh class day
Five or six-week courses First through the fifth class day
one to four-week courses  Prior to the start of classes

To avoid charges for a summer term, a registered student must officially withdraw from all classes before the first day of classes for that term. Students who reduce their course load by dropping one or more courses may or may not be entitled to a reduction in charges.

You may withdraw from the university in one of two ways:

1. Online or

2. In-person visit to the Records and Registration.

Whenever possible, students should submit the University Withdrawal Form online via our automated process. 

If you are withdrawing in person you must come by the Office of Records and Registration with a photo ID and you will be guided through the online withdrawal form.

Tuition and Fee Adjustment schedules for current terms are available at ualr.edu/bursar/refunds.

Tax-Deductible Educational Expenses

The cost of college education expenses may be deductible on an individual’s federal income tax return if classes are taken:

  • To maintain or improve the skills required in the individual’s trade or business, or required in performing a present job
  • To meet the specific requirements of an employer or the requirements of the law for retention of present employment, salary, or status
  • Such that the criteria for the American Opportunity Credit or the Lifetime Learning Credit are met

These credits can be applied to tax returns if the student meets the eligibility requirements.

This section should not be construed as tax advice. Students should consult a tax advisor or contact the local office of the Internal Revenue Service.

Acknowledgment of Financial Responsibility

Upon registering for classes, students will be required to acknowledge their financial responsibility, as follows:

  • I understand that upon my registration, I have made a contractual financial obligation to pay all tuition and fees associated with any classes in which I register, unless I drop/withdraw by the tuition and fee adjustment schedule dates listed on the Bursar’s website. “Not Attending” does not remove this obligation. 
  • I am responsible for reading and following the drop/withdrawal policy of the university, as posted on the Bursar’s website.
  • I understand I am responsible for tuition and fee charges for courses dropped outside of the Adjustment Schedule found on the Bursar’s website.
  • I authorize UA Little Rock to apply any financial aid I receive toward my account balance. If my aid is reduced or canceled, I understand that I will be fully responsible for all charges not covered by financial aid and am required to make payment arrangements. Failure to make payment arrangements will result in a hold on my account, and up to class selections being deleted.
  • UA Little Rock’s official method of correspondence with students, including billing, is via the UA Little Rock assigned email address. I accept my responsibility to access my UA Little Rock assigned email account regularly and to take any required action.
  • I understand and agree that UA Little Rock will assess financial penalties on any past-due accounts. The penalties assessed are $50 for each late payment. At semester end, I understand and agree that if I have a past due account, my account may be referred to an outside collection agency and result in additional charges that are up to 33% of the outstanding principal debt.
