Request for Exception
Any student wishing to request an exception to a scholarship requirement may submit a Scholarship Request for Exception form. These requests are considered on a case-by-case basis and may be either approved or denied. The University Scholarship Policy (No. 254) states that the Appeals Committee has up to 30 calendar days to return a decision, although the typical turnaround time is one to two weeks.
This form may be completed digitally and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. If emailed from the student's official TN Tech email address, this will suffice in place of a signature. Students may also submit the form in person at Jere Whitson Building Room 306, or by mail to:Tennessee Tech University

Major Illness or Disability of Student
Any request for exception citing major illness or disability of the student will require the student to register and meet with the Accessible Education Center. Students are expected to begin this process before failing to meet a scholarship requirement, if possible. The AEC will work with the student to determine appropriate accommodations that can be made to enable the student to meet either the full requirement(s) or a modified version. To protect your privacy, the Scholarship Office cannot directly accept a student's medical documentation. We will defer to the judgment of the Accessible Education Center to determine what constitutes a reasonable accommodation.
