fee charges when a student can document extenuating circumstances. Examples of circumstances

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,
advisor, or the appropriate Academic Dean before attempting this process.
Tuition Appeals submitted for semesters older than one year of age will be denied.
