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 

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 of outcome 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.  Miscellaneous fees such as Orientation, ID or WOW 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 registration process 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 Cashier’s Office. Continued failure to pay may result in the account being sent to a collection agency with additional collection costs up to 33.3 percent being assessed to the account.
