This is a safe place to get help and find the resources you need
At Student Ombudsperson Services…
Our office exists as a point of contact for students who need assistance in identifying where they should go for help and in determining how to resolve issues related to academic or student life.
The Ombudsperson is the Chairperson of the Tuition and Fees Appeals Board (TFAB).
Students who have exhausted the appeals process in the Office of the Registrar
related to tuition and fees may appeal to the TFAB. The TFAB is the final arbiter of appeals for
tuition and related fees. Each appeal is reviewed as an individual case,
and cancellation of tuition and/or fees is granted only when circumstances
warrant. The TFAB will consider only those appeals that are filed within
one calendar year following the last day of the academic term in which the
challenged fees were assessed.
All Wayne State University students are eligible for services.
