Fee Petitions & Financial Holds

Fee Petitions

To request a full refund after the add/drop period, a student may file a petition if one of the following conditions are met and documentation is provided:

  1. Student’s involuntary call to active military duty
  2. Death of a member of the student’s immediate family (parent, spouse, child, sibling)
  3. Incapacitating illness of such duration or severity, as confirmed in writing by a physician, that completion of the term is impossible
  4. A situation in which the University is in error 

PLEASE NOTE: Medical withdrawals should be submitted to the office of Student Health Services at 620-2175 or the Counseling Center (Mental Health) at 620-2603 and not submitted via a fee petition.

To file a fee petition, a student, or someone acting on the student’s behalf with written authorization, must:

  1. Officially withdraw from the course(s) or the University;
  2. Complete a fee petition online via myWings and attach documentation supporting one of the conditions indicated above.

The petitioner will receive an email confirmation that the petition was successfully submitted and will be notified via email of the decision after committee review. Students have six months from the end of the semester in question to file a fee petition. Petitioning for a refund is not a guarantee that a refund will be approved. The decision of the Fee Committee is final. By state statute, students may not petition for a refund of the third attempt repeat surcharge or excess hours fee.  Miscellaneous fees such as orientation, ID or WOW, or parking permit late fee are NOT petitionable.

Tuition fee refunds provided to students will be processed against any outstanding charges prior to remitting a refund to the student.

Financial Holds

Failure to pay outstanding amounts due UNF will result in a financial hold being placed on the student’s records and the assessment of a $100 late payment fee.A financial hold prohibits processing of requests for transcripts, registration, reinstatement, enrollment verification, release of grades, and receipt of diploma until the debt is cleared by the Student Financial Service’s Office. Continued failure to pay may result in the account being sent to a collection agency with additional collection fees up to 33.3 percent being assessed to the student’s account.
