Financial Appeal

To make an appeal, send documentation and description of your situation to

Students who take 4 or more courses are considered full-time students and therefore pay full-time tuition rates. If you drop from 5 courses to 4 courses, you will not receive a tuition refund, as you are still considered to be a full-time student and the tuition remains the same. Some incidental fees are charged based on the number of courses in which a student is registered, so you may be eligible for a refund of those fees, depending on the date you drop. See above for the incidental drop date.
