Tuition Appeal

What is a Tuition Appeal Form?

As you review your student bill, you will see charges for things like tuition, on-campus housing, your meal plan, services, etc.

You might also see additional charges for late registration, adjusted refunds for dropped courses and excess credit fees.

If you see an additional charge related to your tuition, and you want someone to look it over for you or take an extenuating circumstance into consideration, you can file a Tuition Appeal.

What can be Considered for Appeal?

You can appeal additional charges related to your tuition. These include late registration fees, excess credit fees, or an adjusted refund percentage on a dropped course.

Appeals for monthly service charges or a refund associated with an official withdrawal due to medical or family issues can also be submitted through this form.

If you have concerns with a fee that is not related to tuition, please connect with the department that directly issued that fee. You can only file a tuition-related appeal through this form.
