Tuition and Fee Appeal Process

This process is for students who wish to receive an exception of University policy to receive a refund for tuition and/or fees after the 100% refund deadline. Recipients of the Recovery Grant are not eligible to appeal for a refund.

  1. Complete the Tuition and Fee Appeal form and submit it to the One Stop Center. All supporting documentation should be submitted at this same time (i.e. medical documentation).
  2. The Office of the Registrar will prepare a packet of information that includes: the student’s appeal documentation, unofficial transcript, current semester’s schedule, and tuition statement for the current semester.  
  3. The Appeals Committee (comprised of representatives from various departments on campus) meets monthly to review each student request and packet of information to make a decision. The Committee may also contact the student’s instructor(s) to inquire about the student’s attendance record and current grade in the course. The Office of the Registrar then sends a letter via LTU email to the student with the decision (NOTE: The LTU email address is the University's official means of communication).

Please note the following:

  • Students should be aware that if an exception is made, their financial aid may be impacted and they may potentially owe the University money.
  • It is important to note that exceptions to University policy are made only in  rare circumstances , such as a debilitating illness. Requests made because of difficult work schedules or class schedules may not be considered.
