The Tuition Appeals Committee reports to the Vice President for Finance and Administration and serves to hear appeals brought forward by students regarding their tuition charges. The committee recommends to the Director of Student Financial Services that the student’s appeal be denied or approved and that appropriate refunds, if any, be credited to the student’s account. Student appeals are received in written form and each student is contacted regarding the results (in writing if requested or if the appeal is denied).
The Tuition Appeals Committee will meet monthly to address student appeals (usually the last week of each month if possible).
The Business Services office maintains record of the appeals that are filed each month,
committee’s decision regarding that appeal, and a copy of any correspondence that is mailed to the student who submitted the appeal. These records contain FERPA protected information and will not be posted on the university’s website. However, accurate and detailed records of the committee’s decisions will be maintained for at least five years.
