How to dispute your tuition
If you drop a course or withdraw from all courses after the refund period due to significant or unusual circumstances, you have the right to submit a tuition dispute. You must do so within one year of the end of the semester in which you dropped the course or withdrew from all courses.
Reasons to file a dispute
We’ll consider tuition disputes only for very specific, extenuating circumstances, including:
- University error
- A recent medical condition
- Immediate family emergency such as death or severe illness
- Transfer to another university
How to file a dispute
As the student, only you can initiate a tuition dispute. We’ll consider disputes from your parent or legal guardian only when extremely serious and documented circumstances prevent you from filing a dispute yourself.
To file a dispute, first you must drop the class (or classes) you wish to dispute or else formally withdraw from IUPUI. Before your dispute can be considered, all dropped classes must have a grade of W. (For more info on grade changes, please visit https://studentcentral.iupui.edu/grades-progress/grade-changes/index.html). Next, submit a tuition dispute form along with the required documentation and your personal statement.
The dispute process takes about forty-five days (longer if you’re missing documentation). We may request additional documentation.
We’ll notify you by email or mail after a decision has been made. If we approve your petition, your tuition and fees will be automatically adjusted.
