This thesis examines about refusal strategies used by 5th Semester Students of English Department in State Islamic University of Sunan Ampel Surabaya. This thesis aims to find out the classifications of refusal strategies and refusal sequences used by the 5th semester students as the respondents. The source of data were taken from 5th semester students who already pass a Pragmatics subject. The researcher uses several theories about refusal strategies from Beebe et al., and Brown & Levinson. Also, the researcher uses theory of refusal sequences from Felix Brasdefer. This thesis uses descriptive analysis method. In addition, this thesis uses a DCT (Discourse Completion Test) as the instrument. In the data collection, the researcher observed the 5th semester students during 5 days of college times. Later, the researcher determined 30 students to become the respondents based on the observation result. Next, the researcher made a DCT then gave it to the respondents. The researcher had transcribed the data after collecting the DCT. Then, the researcher identified, coded, classified and analyzed the data. As the result, the researcher found direct strategies that appears 95 times, indirect strategies that appears in the DCT 402 times, and adjuncts that appears 193 times. From the explanation above, the strategy that is most frequently used by the respondents is indirect strategy.
