Residents must pay to the University a $300 non-refundable deposit with a Residence Hall Agreement to request a space in the residence halls for the ensuing agreement period. Except in the case of midyear graduation or withdrawal from the institution, the housing agreement is binding from the date of occupancy to the end of the current academic year. The deposit is non-transferable and nonrefundable. $200 of the deposit will be applied to your student account and $100 will be retained as a damage deposit. Person(s) found responsible for damage will have financial responsibility for the cost incurred to fix or abate the damage. When the person(s) cannot be identified as responsible for damages, all residents of a room, suite, wing, floor, or residence hall will share equal financial responsibility for the cost incurred to fix or abate the damage. Liability for damage may exceed the amount held as damage deposit.
Upon occupancy, the $25 residence activity fee is no longer refundable.
A student may be released from this Residence Hall Agreement only if approved by a special committee that shall review each request individually and with reference to prevailing University policy for granting such waivers.
Should a resident withdraw from the University, that student must notify the Office of Residential Life and Housing by completing the Early Release Request from the Annual Housing Agreement Form, and then follow appropriate procedures by checking out with a residential life staff member. All room refunds are subject to the room refund schedule found in the Directory of Classes. Please review the schedule before requesting a refund.
Students who are suspended, expelled or dismissed from the University housing pursuant to disciplinary action are not entitled to a refund for tuition, fees or room charges for the semester in which the sanction is imposed. Meal Plan refunds are made in accordance with the schedule in effect at the time of the dismissal.
Students who submit a Residence Hall Agreement after the first day of the semester or change rooms after the first day of the semester should contact the Office of Residential Life and Housing to discuss their financial responsibility to the University.
All refunds of credit balances must be requested from the Office of Student Financial Services.
