Student appeals for late registration, late payment of tuition and fees, and refunds of tuition upon withdrawal after the refund deadline are referred to the University Fee Appeals Committee. In order to be considered, requests for refunds and other appeal actions must be submitted within six months after the end of the semester to which the refund or appeal action is applicable. Appeals are reviewed/approved based on extenuating circumstances only and should include supporting documentation. Extenuating circumstances include, but are not limited to: call to or enlisted in active military service within the semester; death of the student or death in the immediate family (parent, spouse, child, sibling); complete withdrawal of the student from all courses due to illness of the student that is confirmed in writing by a physician, stating that completion of the term is precluded. All appeals must be submitted in writing or by email utilizing the Fee Appeals Form (pdf). The appeal form with supporting documentation should be submitted to Student Accounts, Bldg 20E, or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
If the appeal is denied, the decision of the Fee Appeals Committee may be appealed first to the University Controller, then to the Vice President for Business, Finance, and Facilities, as designee of the President, has final authority within the University.
The submission of an appeal does not extend the due date for outstanding tuition and fees or other charges while awaiting a decision by the Fee Appeals Committee. Charges not paid by the due date will be assessed the late payment fee.
