Tuition appeals can only be considered when a student has withdrawn from a course and has received a ‘W’ grade.
Appeals will only be considered for two terms prior to the current term.
Guidelines for Submitting a Tuition Appeal
- Appeals can only be considered when a student has withdrawn from a course and has received a ‘W’ grade.
- Appeals will only be considered for two terms prior to the current term.
- Filing a Tuition Appeal does not relieve your current financial obligation to College of DuPage. Scheduled payments remaining in an active payment plan schedule will continue until a final committee decision is made on the appeal. Tuition Appeals do not absolve balances owed resulting from bookstore charges.
- Failure to provide adequate documentation at the time of submission will result in denial of your appeal.
- The decision process takes approximately 4 weeks. Additional time may be necessary to contact faculty and for instructional, financial aid or advising issues to be reviewed by the applicable division Dean. All documentation received remains confidential. You will be notified of the committee’s decision by mail.
- If your Tuition Appeal is approved, your account will be credited in accordance with the committee’s decision (50% or 100%) within 30 days. If there is a balance due on your account, the refund amount will be credited to your account balance.
Tuition Appeal Exclusions
- A Tuition Appeal cannot be considered when an instructor has issued a passing grade (A, B, C, D, S, I).
- Submitting a Tuition Appeal may affect your financial aid. Contact a Financial Assistance Representative for information regarding the impact of your appeal on your financial aid.
- If the course in question has a grade of “F”, students must submit a Petition for Failing Grades to the Office of Student Records before the Tuition Appeal can be considered. If the Petition for Failing Grades is approved, then a Tuition Appeal will be accepted. Questions regarding the Petition for Failing Grades can be directed to Grades Department at (630) 942-2445.

- Medical Appeal (student medical issue or caregiver)
