Tuition Refund Appeals
TUITION REFUND APPEALS APPLICATIONS
Tuition Refund Appeals can be submitted for the following two reasons:
- Never Attended a class and/or classes. Non-attendance applications being submitted for the current term (i.e. student never attended a course in Fall 2020 and is submitting an appeal during the Fall 2020 term) should be done by completing the Petition for Exception to Registration application found on the Registrar's Website. For all other non-attendance applications, the notification must be from the instructor of record for the class and must either
- come from the instructor's kent.edu email address or
- submitted and signed on the College's official letterhead
- Enrollment/attendance at another college/university. The appeal application must include an official verification of attendance at the other institution. The document can usually be requested through the school's Office of the Registrar.
All required support documents noted above must be provided before the Tuition Refund Appeal can be submitted via the Tuition Refund Appeal Application. Please visit the Tuition Refund Appeal FAQ webpage for more information about the Tuition Refund Appeal process. Students can also contact the One Stop for Student Services at (330) 672-6000 for more information about the Tuition Refund Appeals.
There is a two year limit on filing a refund appeal. Example: If a student is filing an appeal for the Fall 2018 term then it must be submitted to KSU by the official end date of the Fall 2020 term.
SUBMITTING A TUITION REFUND APPEAL APPLICATION
Students must be officially withdrawn from the class and/or classes for which the appeal is being submitted. Additional information about withdrawing from the course(s) can be found on the Registrar's Website.
