Appeals Board Process:

The Appeals Board is designed to formally and confidentially review appeals from students who were not approved for contract cancellation through the normal process of finding a replacement for your contract. Only cases of extreme hardship will be considered. For all financial appeals, students must show that they have exhausted all possible options provided by the Financial Aid Office, including loans. For medical and mental health appeals, the student must have engaged in the ADA interactive process. Appeals related to roommate conflicts will not be granted, as the student must engage in the room transfer process. The Appeals Board is the final decision-maker on such requests. Filing an appeal does not guarantee cancellation.
