Under special circumstances and for compelling reasons beyond a student’s control, the College may grant an exception to the above policy or grant tuition credit or waiver. Students may request such an exception by completing the Financial Appeals form available from the One-Stop. The request must be made in writing and supporting documentation is required. The student’s request must support that the circumstances leading to the student’s withdrawal were outside of the student’s control. Criteria for consideration may include a death in the family or a medical emergency. In addition, a tuition credit or waiver may be granted only when tuition has been paid. Tuition credits or waivers are not given when the account shows an outstanding balance.
