Petition to Drop a Class After the Tenth Week of a Semester
Student Tuition Appeals
Per Ohio University Procedure 12.050 Part V, the Tuition Appeal Review Panel considers student requests for reimbursements of tuition charges associated with class drops, withdrawal from Ohio University, or other situations that were due to circumstances beyond a student's control that prevented him/her from adhering to drop or withdrawal deadlines.
For example: students are generally entitled to a 100% tuition refund if all classes are dropped (registration canceled) before classes begin, an 80% tuition refund if all classes are dropped by the 15th day of the term, and no refund at all if classes are dropped after the 15th day of the term.
The Panel reviews requests for exceptions to this rule.
Some examples of exceptions may include: a significant illness or injury that prevented the student from attending class, completing assignments, or necessitated the students withdrawal from class(es) or the university; significant illness or injury of an immediate family member that required the students absence from class or necessitated the students withdrawal from the university;death of an immediate family member;military deployment/call to active duty; enrollment/attendance at another college/university while never attending class at Ohio University (verification of attendance from the other institution is required); unforeseen job schedule that conflicts with class times (verification from employer required); or errors on the part of the university/university employee.
In all cases, verification from sources other than the student is required (completed university medical documentation form, copy of death certificate or obituary, copy of military orders, verification of class non-attendance from faculty, etc.)
All tuition appeals must be submitted through the dean's office of the college or regional campus within which the student is enrolled. The dean's office will refer students to college staff who will guide them through the appeal process and submit the appeal to the review panel on behalf of the student.
Appeals may take two to three weeks to be reviewed and processed, depending on the nature of the appeal. Students should contact the college staff regarding their appeals' status.
