Choosing the Right Appeal Process

NDSU upholds all institutional and federal policies in its effort to provide fair and consistent practices to all students.  However there are instances when a student may find it necessary to request exception to one or more policies as a result of extenuating circumstances that are beyond a student's control.  As a result, NDSU has established various appeal processes which address academic related matters, tuition and fees, and financial aid. 

To determine which process (or processes) apply based on the circumstance, please select from the list of statements below:

I would like to have my enrollment status for a course or courses changed. 

I would like to have the tuition and fee charges related to my enrollment adjusted or reversed.

I would like to appeal to regain my eligibility for federal or state financial aid.

I would like to appeal suspension from NDSU due to poor academic performance.


If you still have questions please contact the NDSU Bison Connection Office at 866-924-8969 or

Requesting an Adjustment to Charges


If you are appealing charges for a course in which you are still enrolled, including having received an Incomplete ("I") or Failing ("F") grade, you must have the grade changed to a Withdrawal ("W") before an adjustment to charges can be processed.  Submit the appropriate appeal to the Registration and Records Office to request the change.

Use the Appeal of NDSU Tuition and Fees for tuition, differential tuition, student fees, course fees, class fees, program fees, new student fees and/or late payment fees.

  • For adjustments on all other charges, including meal plans, housing, rent, rent late fees, international health insurance, student health charges, bookstore charges, and parking permits contact the department issuing the charge.
  • If you are not sure which department to contact or if the charge can be considered under the Appeal of NDSU Tuition and Fees please contact the NDSU Customer Account Services office at 800-742-4019 or email at
