Refund Appeal Procedure


Students have a right to submit an appeal of the refund policy if there is a significant or unusual circumstance that causes their withdrawal from class after the normal refund period.

The procedure for appeal is as follows:

After withdrawal from class, you are required to submit a letter to the Refund Appeals Committee. This letter may be delivered to the Dean of Students Office located in Whitewater 101D. The letter will then be forwarded to the Refund Appeals Committee.

Your letter to the Refund Appeals Committee should include your contact Information.

  • name
  • student ID number
  • address
  • phone number

Please address your appeal letter to:

Amber Hall, Administrative Secretary
Dean of Students Office
Attn: Refund Appeals Committee
Indiana University East
2325 Chester Blvd.
Richmond IN 47374

Or e-mail your letter to:  Amber Hall

Please explain the circumstances surrounding your appeal.

Include any supporting documentation that proves your case such as: a print out showing your attempt to withdraw from a class, dated error report due to technical problems, e-mails that may include correspondence with faculty.

Include the refund amount requested, course number, class name and semester (Spring, Fall, Summer I or Summer II).

Submit the letter to the Dean of Students Office within three weeks of withdrawal. Appeals received after this period will not be considered. Once an appeal is submitted, it is forwarded to the Refund Appeals Committee for consideration.

Once a committee recommendation has been rendered, the Dean of Students Office will formally communicate the decision to the student.
