The Graduate School supports the principles of a compassionate tuition adjustment to accommodate students in the following circumstance:
The students have experienced a traumatic event for which they have little or no control, and
It appears that the event will impede/prevent the students from completing the semester.
The academic dean or the dean’s designee will assess the meaning and effect of the event on the student and the request for tuition adjustment. The student's faculty advisor and/or graduate program chair must request this on behalf of the student. Relevant documentation may be required.
