Fee Appeals

Students who desire to appeal a Late Payment Fee and/or a Late Registration Fee may make their appeal to the Fee Appeals Committee by initiating a student petition (Form 41-561). Students must submit their petitions to Student Account Services by email at studentaccounts@ucf.edu or by fax at (407) 823-1982. If the original petition is denied, students may appear before the Committee (not mandatory).

Third Attempt Surcharge

Students taking undergraduate courses are assessed a surcharge when attempting a course for a third time or more. Completed courses, withdrawals and courses with incomplete grades are counted as “attempts,” including courses repeated to raise the GPA or to achieve a specific grade.

Exemptions to the third attempt surcharge will be considered through a Fee Appeal Process.

Exceptions to the repeat course fee requirement shall be based only on extenuating circumstances or financial hardship.


Extenuating Circumstances

Extenuating circumstances are those circumstances determined by the University of Central Florida to be exceptional and beyond the control of the student.

  • Medical condition or serious illness preventing completion;
  • Death of an immediate family member;
  • Involuntary call to active duty; or
  • Other emergency circumstances or extraordinary conditions.

Special Limitation: Students who withdraw or fail a class due to extenuating circumstances may be granted an exemption only once for each class.
