A refund beyond the four week liability schedule may be considered under the following circumstances: 

  • Unforeseen medical incapacitation or death of an immediate family member 
  • Severe injury incurred during the semester  
  • Unanticipated illness to which the student had no prior knowledge 
  • College error

If a student has experienced any of the above criteria, a written statement may be submitted to onestop@potsdam.edu. An appeal of charges must be submitted within one year after the end of the term for which the charges were billed. Supporting documentation, such as medical documentation or a death certificate, must accompany an appeal statement.

Note: Students appealing charges who receive financial aid are encouraged to discuss their account with a financial aid advisor, as adjustments to charges could potentially also change eligibility for aid.
