Fee Policy Appeals

Students have the right to submit an appeal of the refund policy if there are significant or unusual circumstances that cause them to drop a course or withdraw from all courses after the refund period. Students may also appeal the assessment of late fees or penalty fees in cases of extenuating circumstances or University error. The procedure for filing an appeal is:

  • After dropping the course or withdrawing from all courses, obtain the Fee Policy Appeal Form from Student Central . You must drop the course or withdraw from all courses before an appeal can be considered.
  • Submit the appeal form and supporting documentation to the Office of the Bursar. Once submitted, the appeal is forwarded to the Fee Policy Appeals Committee for consideration.
  • Once a committee decision has been rendered, that decision will be communicated to the student in writing.

A request for appeal must be submitted within one year following the end of the term or session for which relief is being sought.
