Tuition and course related fees are petitioned through the Office of the University Registrar. Your petition may be approved for:
- A sudden illness, accident, injury, or situation that influenced your class schedule. Generally, petitions for chronic illnesses are not approved.
- Call to military service or jury duty.
- Substantiated circumstances involving University error where a student in good faith relied on information by a named University official and was consequently misled or mistaken.
- An unexpected job loss or financial change in circumstances.
Documentation must be provided to confirm the changes to your circumstances for this semester. All documentation is considered confidential and will not be shared with other departments at the University. Documentation will not be returned to the student and will be destroyed after five years.
You must submit an initial fee petition for the Office of the University Registrar prior to submitting an appeal. If your petition is denied, you have the option to appeal that decision. Appeals must be received within 30 days of notification of the original denial.
