Financial Appeal Policy and Process
Financial Appeal Undergraduate Tuition Fees - Appeal after September 21, 2023
Students accept financial responsibility for course fees upon registration.
Students are expected to familiarize themselves with the Trent University Fees Policy, the Payment Due Dates, Refund Policy and Financial Drop Deadlines.
Students wishing to submit a financial appeal because of a serious illness or death of an immediate family member during the study period, may do so in writing for a fee of $25.00. This fee must be included with the financial appeal submission.
Financial appeals may take up to 60 days to finalize. A successful academic petition does not guarantee a successful financial appeal.
Please Note: Only tuition is assessed for the appeal process.
As per Canada Revenue Agency guidelines, all financial appeal awards will result in the recalculation of the T2202 tax credit.

The medical note should include a statement from the doctor or psychologist that the illness was not pre-existing to the start of the school year, and that a full withdrawal from the term was necessary.
The financial appeal should be emailed to Kimberly Pinch
Financial appeals may be granted at the discretion of the university.
An academic appeal is not the same as a financial appeal (see Academic Appeals for details).
