The USF System may grant exceptions to this rule based on extenuating circumstances and financial hardship. However, the USF System may only approve one appeal per course. Documentation, regardless of the situation, must be submitted with the request for a waiver of this surcharge. Extenuating circumstances are those circumstances determined by the University to be exceptional and beyond the control of the student and may include, but not be limited to, the following:
The criteria used by the USF System for determining financial hardship should include, but not be limited to, qualification for federal need-based financial aid. Students with other documented financial hardships may also be considered.
The student must complete a Fee Adjustment Request Form and indicate that the request is for a waiver of the repeat course surcharge. They must also submit a statement that explains their request and provide all documentation relating to it. The completed form, with documentation, should be submitted to the Office of the Registrar for consideration.
