Petition & Tuition Refund Appeals

(Petitions Committee)


The Petitions Committee, a standing committee of the Student Services Council, is composed of students, staff, and faculty members. The Petitions Committee exists to consider the petitions of students with respect to any college rule or regulation. Board policy has empowered the Petitions Committee to take direct action in the following areas:

  • Change of WI grades (Withdrawal — Illness) due to physical or mental illness
  •  Appeal for tuition refunds
  • Appeal Graduation Requirements
  • Appeal Instructor Initiated drop
  • General Complaints

In considering all other types of petitions, the Committee reviews requests and refers students to the appropriate campus office for action. Such referrals may be accompanied by the recommendations of the Committee.

Students may present questions regarding any regulation or policy of the College. The Tuition Refund Appeal Form are available above or in the Student Services Center.  The Student Services Council meets on the third (3rd) Tuesday each month.  All appeals must be submitted at least one week prior to the scheduled meeting.  All appeals decisions by the Council are final.

Completed forms and required documentation should be sent to:
