Regular term payment of room and board must be paid before the first day of classes. Summer term payment of room and board must be paid in full before the first day of classes. Applicants for residence hall reservations must pay a deposit at the time the application is filed. (This amount is subject to change at any time). The deposit will be refunded at checkout pending any necessary damage repairs. All unmarried freshman and sophomore students are required to live on campus, excluding the summer term unless the student qualifies for an exemption to this policy.

For applicants deciding not to enroll, written notice of withdrawal for the fall semester must be received by the Residence Life Office by May 31st, and by November 30th for the spring semester. Failure to notify the Residence Life Office in writing by the deadline will result in the forfeiture of the deposit. (Exception: Should the applicant be denied admission to either institution, a full refund will be made without regard to dates.) Students paying on-campus tuition and fees are entitled to participate in all college activities and attend athletic events.

The housing contract is valid for the academic year. Students cannot cancel their housing application to avoid living on campus after the application is considered active. Students must submit a contract release request and be approved for a release in order to live off-campus after applying. Releases are not guaranteed. For students residing on campus in the fall semester, contract release requests must be submitted by the deadlines listed above in order to receive a deposit refund. Please contact the Residence Life office if you have any questions concerning this information.
