Tuition Appeal

Tuition Appeal

Tuition Appeal should be completed when a student had to stop attending or withdraw from their courses after the drop date due to emergency circumstances and/or unforeseen financial hardship. If approved, this appeal can result in a full or partial tuition refund. Other fees, books and course material cost may still apply.

Tuition Appeal Guidelines:

Read Carefully Before Submission

The Tuition Appeal Committee cannot resolve instructor or course dissatisfaction complaints. Please contact the Instructional Division to request an investigation and follow their recommendation.

Due to record destruction requirements, the college may not be able to process tuition appeals that are more than 5 years old.
