Student Appeal Guidelines:

The deadline to submit an appeal is 6 months after the charge has posted to your student account. Requests after the deadline will not be considered.

  • A written narrative is required explaining the request for a refund. Late Fee Appeal forms submitted without explanation and details of the request will not be considered.
  • The submission of a late fee appeal does not guarantee approval. 
  • The submission of a late fee appeal does not extend the due date for any outstanding charges while awaiting a decision by the late Fee Appeals Committee.

Appeals are reviewed for the existence of extenuating circumstances only and must include documentation. The following circumstances may warrant approval; however, each appeal is considered based on the facts and documentation presented:

  • Call to or enlisted in active duty military service within the semester
  • Death in immediate family (student, parent, spouse, child, sibling)
  • Medical

 Circumstances generally not sufficient to support an appeal include, but are not limited to:

  • Not being aware of registration and/or tuition and fee payment due dates
  • Insufficient financial aid or financial hardship
  • Lack of familiarity with Chapman University system or procedures

If you are a student and submitting appeal via email, you must use your assigned Chapman University email account
