BLACKBOARD COURSES

A&M-Texarkana uses Blackboard web course management software that allows easy access to all of your web-based and web-enhanced courses, including a student orientation course designed to familiarize you with the basic course functions of the Blackboard tools.

Information about Blackboard, including information on how to logon, may be found on the university home page (www.tamut.edu). Choose Current students (at the top of the page) and then Blackboard. When you are ready to access your course, please select Go to My Blackboard. Please note: Faculty may not give you access to WebCT until the first day of the term.

REPEATED COURSES

Students who attempt a course three or more time at A&M-Texarkana since Fall 2002 will be charged out-of-state tuition for the repeated course. The bill you receive after you register may not accurately reflect the additional tuition and fees for the courses attempted three or more times. A&M-Texarkana reserves the right to adjust the student's tuition as a result of registering for the third or more time.

The following courses are exempt from this rule:

  1. Thesis or dissertation courses
  2. Courses that may be repeated for credit because they involve different or more advanced content each time the course is taken
  3. Independent Study courses
  4. Special Topics and Seminar courses
  5. Continuing education courses that must be repeated to retain professional certification

LIMITATION ON IN-STATE TUITION RATES
FOR SOME UNDERGRADUATES

New undergraduate students enrolling in an institution of higher education in Fall 1999 or afterward are subject to the conditions of Senate Bill 345 passed in the 76th Legislative session. The law states that a resident undergraduate student whose attempted hours exceeds, by at least 45 semester credit hours, the number of hours required for completion of the degree program may be charged tuition at a higher rate. The higher rate will not exceed the rate charged to non-resident undergraduate students. A resident student is one who pays the in-state rate for tuition purposes. For students who enroll in college for the first time Fall 2006 or afterward, the excessive hours limit changes to 30 semester credit hours.

LIMITATION ON DROPPING COURSES

Under section 51.907 of the Texas Education Code, "an institution of higher education may not permit a student to drop more than six courses, including any course a transfer student has dropped at another institution of higher education." This statue was enacted by the State of Texas in spring 2007 and applied to students who enroll in a public institution of higher education as first-time freshmen in fall 2007 or later. Any course that a student drops is counted toward the six-drop limit if "(1) the student was able to drop the course without receiving a grade or incurring an academic penalty; (2) the student's transcript indicates or will indicate that the student was enrolled in the course; and (3) the student is not dropping the course in order to withdraw from the institution." Some exemptions for good cause could allow a student to drop a course without having it counted toward this limit, but it is the responsibility of the student to establish that good cause.

Contact the Office of Admissions for more information before you drop a course.

A&M University-Texarkana students affected by this statue that has attended or plans to attend another institution of higher education should become familiar with that institution's policies on dropping courses.

RESIDENCE

Residence Status
Tuition is assessed each student on the basis of residence classification and the number of semester credit hours for which he registers.  The definition of a Texas resident is a U.S. citizen who is gainfully employed and has resided in the state of Texas for 12 months (prior to enrollment) for the purpose of establishing legal residency.

Oath of Residency
The student is responsible for registering under the proper residence classification and for providing documentation as required by the institution. If there is any question as to an individual's rights to be classified as a resident of Texas, it is the student's obligation, prior to or at the time of enrollment, to raise the question with the Admissions Office for official determination. Students classified as residents must affirm the correctness of that classification as part of the admissions procedure. If the student's classification as a resident becomes inappropriate for any reason, it is the responsibility of the student to notify the Admissions Office. Failure to notify the institution constitutes a violation of the Oath of Residency and will result in disciplinary action.  Consult the current General Catalog for further information.

Note: A Non-Resident is a U.S. citizen who resides outside the state of Texas or has not been a resident of Texas for 12 months immediately preceding the date of enrollment. An Alien is a person who is a citizen of another country or has not yet received U.S. citizenship.

Border County Residents
A nonresident student who is a resident of a county or parish of Arkansas, Louisiana, or Oklahoma that is adjacent to this state is eligible to pay in-state rates.

Border State Residents
A nonresident student who resides in a state 100 miles or less from the university is eligible to pay Border State Rates which is $30 per semester credit hour higher than Texas resident rates.

REFUND OF FEES

Refunds for drops or withdrawals are based on the total tuition being paid. Students who drop or withdraw are responsible for any remaining tuition payments. 

Refund Schedule for Dropped Courses
Refunds are based on total assessed tuition, not total tuition paid. A class dropped by the dates listed below will result in a reduction in total assessed tuition provided the student remains enrolled for the semester. No reduction in fees will be given for courses dropped after the dates listed below:

Fall term         September 9

Refunds for courses dropped by a student who later withdraws are calculated according to the withdrawal schedule above. If a scheduled course fails to materialize because it lacks the required number of students, all fees for that course will be refunded.

Refund Schedule for Withdrawals
A student who officially withdraws from all courses will receive a refund of fees according to the following schedule:

NOTE: The semester's first class day is always the first official day of the semester, not the first day of an individual's class.

70% means you will receive a refund of 20% (50% paid less 30% owed = 20% refund)
50% means you will not receive a refund and do not owe any additional tuition (50% paid less 50% owed = 0)
25% means you owe an additional 25% of total assessed tuition (50% paid less 75% owed = 25% balance due)

FINANCIAL AID REFUNDS

All Financial Aid refund checks will be mailed to the student's current address on file in the Admission's Office.

FINANCIAL AID STUDENTS WHO WITHDRAW FROM ALL CLASSES

Students who have received financial aid that withdraw from A&M-Texarkana on or before the 60% point in the semester must repay a portion of his/her financial aid as specified by the Federal formula. The student is only eligible to maintain the amount of financial aid he/she has earned at the time attendance ceases. The student will be required to repay both the Federal programs and A&M-Texarkana for institutional charges. A&M-Texarkana will use the Federal formula in determining the amount the student must repay. All financial aid students must contact the Financial Aid Office before withdrawing from classes in order to understand the adverse affects of his/her withdrawal.

Financial Aid Students Who Drop Classes
Financial aid awards are based on the student’s enrollment status on the university's official census date report. If the student drops below the number of hours for which he/she was paid on or before the official census date, repayment for some or all of the financial aid may be required. If the students drops after the census date, make-up hours may be required.

Financial Aid Students and Non-Attendance
Students who are awarded financial aid that fail to attend any of his/her classes must repay ALL financial aid he/she received.

Courses abandoned without processing an official drop or withdrawal in the Admissions Office will result in a grade of "F" regardless of the time the student ceases to attend class.
