University Standing Committees and Representative Groups

Tuition Appeals Committee

The Tuition Appeals Committee reports to the Vice President-Finance & Administration and serves to hear appeals brought forward by students regarding their tuition charges.  The committee recommends to the Bursar 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 the Tuition Appeals form is located on the Business Services website (http://www.usm.edu/sites/default/files/groups/business-services/pdf/appealsform_2.pdf).  Each student is contacted regarding the results (in writing if requested or if the appeal is denied).
