Compassionate Tuition Adjustment

The Graduate School supports the principles of a compassionate tuition adjustment to accommodate students who withdraw in the following circumstance:

  1. The students have experienced an unexpected life circumstance and/or traumatic event for which they have little or no control, and
  2. It appears that the event will impede/prevent the students from successfully completing the semester.

The dean or the dean’s designee will assess the meaning and effect of the event on the student and the request for tuition adjustment. Students requesting a tuition adjustment should submit their request in writing to Academic Services in the Graduate School, along with written support for the request from the student’s faculty advisor and/or graduate program chair. Relevant documentation may be required.
