The purpose of this policy is to inform students under what circumstances the University will grant a deferral of fees during a legal work stoppage.
This policy applies to all University students, including those on the regional campuses.
The University will provide a six month tuition and fee deferral to any student who demonstrates that he/she is financially affected by a legal work stoppage that commenced on or after the first day of January, 1993.
The legal work stoppage must be a work stoppage regulated by the Federal National Labor Relations Act or similar state laws regulating labor relations and concerted work stoppages.
