Students are responsible for knowing and adhering to all Metropolitan State University policies and procedures. However, in some cases, students who have experienced extenuating circumstances beyond their control or have experienced an administrative situation that prevented them from successfully completing a course may petition the Registration Appeals Committee for a retroactive drop or withdrawal.
All Registration Appeals are reviewed by the Registration Appeals Committee.
Students receiving financial aid should also contact the Gateway Student Services to determine the impact of the request on their financial aid. There is a signature block on the appeal form for a financial aid representative to sign. The Registration Appeals Committee will not process appeals for students with financial aid unless their form is signed by a Metropolitan State financial aid representative.
A student can use the Registration Appeals Form to petition for a waiver of tuition/partial fees (Grade of "W" will be recorded on transcript) or withdrawal (No refund) within 90 days from the end of a course due to extenuating circumstances.
