The Tuition Appeals Committee will consider requests for adjustment to tuition and fee charges when a student can document extenuating circumstances. Examples of circumstances:
- Medical Reasons which prevented you from attending class and/or completing the requirements of the course
- Death in the immediate family
- Change in Employment beyond students control
- Other extenuating circumstances such as Natural Disaster
Please note: If your circumstance is due to an issue with an instructor, curriculum or course instruction methods, please visit with the instructor, Department Chair or the appropriate Academic Dean before attempting this process.
Tuition Appeals submitted for semesters older than one year of age will be denied.
