Collection Forms and Information
If a student registered for courses but did not attend Western Kentucky University or stopped attending due to extenuating circumstances, there may be schedule appeal options available that could reduce or eliminate an outstanding tuition balance. Please note student schedule exception appeal forms require action on the part of the student and must be completed in a timely manner.
Students may contact the professors to determine if a drop for non-attendance or withdrawal is possible. If the professor is willing to verify non-attendance or withdrawal, they need to submit a student schedule exception appeal for each course requesting the grade be changed to a D4 (drop for non-attendance) or a W (withdrawal). This request is copied to the department head and dean and submitted to the Office of the Registrar. The contact person in the Office of the Registrar for these forms and requests is Rhonda Jones, Student Records Specialist, email@example.com. Please submit schedule appeal forms directly to the Office of the Registrar; click HERE to access the form online.

(Please note these forms are completed per professor discretion)
A student who leaves the University for extenuating circumstances without an official withdrawal during the term of departure may apply for a retroactive withdrawal. A student may appeal for a retroactive withdrawal within two calendar years following the end of the term for which withdrawal is requested.
If you withdrew from a specific course(s) or semester due to an extenuating circumstance, you have the option to file a tuition appeal with the Billings and Receivables Office. The appeal is reviewed by a committee and either approved or denied based on the information provided.
