Dear Sirs, 

I am a student in the summer semester of [School’s Name]. I was enrolled in the History of India course that began on [DATE]. This letter is to request a full refund for my tuition fee of $225.

According to the refund policies of the school written the Student Manual, a full refund will be granted if the student withdraws from the course within six weeks from the beginning of the course. As you can see from the enclosed withdrawal slip, I am within that limit. 

The reason I am forced to withdraw from this course is because of a car accident in which I broke both my legs. I will be undergoing physical therapy for the next eight weeks and will not be able to attend class. 

Enclosed is a letter from my physician, [Doctor’s Name], as well as a copy of the hospital records. Thank you for your attention to this matter, and I look forward to receiving the full refund.

If you have any questions or need further information, I can be reached at 555-123-4567 or at
