Tuition Fee Appeals

Students are solely responsible for ensuring that their registration is complete and accurate. Tuition Fee Appeals will not be considered for any circumstance arising from an error on registration. Lack of attendance in a course(s) is insufficient grounds for a tuition appeal. Incomplete forms will be returned.
If, due to extenuating circumstances, students wish to appeal the assessment of tuition fees relating to dropped course(s) or withdrawal from the University, a Tuition Fee Appeal Form must be completed, official supporting documentation attached and be returned to the Office of the Registrar (fax 519-884-8826).
