Tuition / Late Withdrawal Appeal / Leave of Absence (Revised 6/28/13)

This process has been designed to address extenuating circumstances that have occurred during a semester that has prevented the student from completing their studies. Extenuating circumstances are defined as a one- time occurrence that was beyond the student’s control such as accidents, legal or other catastrophic and unforeseen events.

Appeals can be granted only on grades of “W”. If you have “E” grades, you must appeal through the Committee on Academic Standing, in the Center for Student Success, Room A-118, at the college's main campus. 

These appeals are done on the most current academic year of Fall and Spring semesters only.

The tuition appeals process is not available for the Summer and Winter sessions.

Appeals must not date back more than one year from the time the course was taken.

Documentation to support your appeal must be included along with a copy of your unofficial transcript. This is a one-time process. If your appeal is granted, you will not be eligible to apply in the future.

Please complete the Tuition/Late Withdrawal Appeal form in its entirety and include any supporting documents. You may submit your appeal at the Enrollment Services/Registration Center (One Stop) or mail to the following address:
