Service Charge, Course Drop Charge & Forfeiture Petition

The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus will consider an adjustment of Service Charges, Drop Charges or Late Payment Charges only in cases of university error or where the university has been responsible for a delay in normal processing. Other extenuating circumstances will be considered on a case by case basis.

Petitions must be submitted during the semester the charges/forfeitures are assessed. Do not submit the petition until the charge/s have been applied to your account and your total remaining bill outside the disputed fees have been paid in full.

Service Charges and Late Payment Charges

If you are receiving scholarships and/or loans from a third party and they are late in sending funds, you are still responsible for ensuring that your account is paid on time. Students who are sponsored by the GI Bill should contact the campus Office of Veteran Student Services to discuss their options. Failure to pay on time will result in non-adjustable service charges.

For the Bursar’s office to consider waiving service charges due to late disbursement of Financial Aid, the university must have received your completed financial aid application (FAFSA) by July 1 for Fall term, November 1 for spring term and by May 1 for summer term. In addition, you must have responded to all requests for documentation on a timely basis.

Course Drop Charges

Beginning the second Tuesday of the semester until census date, a $100 course drop charge will be assessed each time a student drops a course. If a student withdraws (therefore dropping all classes), a course drop charge will be assessed for each course.

Petitions will be reviewed and processed within 10 business days.
