Cancellation

Cancellation of Residence Hall and Village Apartment Agreement

    • After room draw (housing selection) for continuing students and once occupancy has begun for new students, the resident cannot cancel the agreement and resultant financial obligations without a financial penalty. A student may request an early termination by filing a Non-Academic Petition. Approval of a petition is granted only in extenuating circumstances (e.g. graduation from the college, leave of absence, or withdrawal from the college). If the petition is denied and the student moves out, the student will be financially liable for the remainder of the period of the agreement and/or will be put on academic hold until complying with the residency requirement. If a student is approved to cancel his/her residence hall room, the fees for that room will be refunded on the schedule found in the catalog.
    • The cancellation day is the day on which the written request is received in the Office of Residence Life or the date the student properly checks out (whichever is later). Residents will be charged until the student has properly checked out.
    • Returning students are charged a $100 room cancellation fee for terminating their agreement after room draw but prior to occupancy.
    • Any student suspended or expelled from the residence halls or village apartments as a result of disciplinary action is financially responsible for the remaining balance of the residence agreement.
    • The college has the right, using established procedures, to suspend, withdraw or change accommodations, guest privileges or access to campus accommodations to any person(s) for violation of the college regulations, for health and safety reasons, when the resident is no longer a student, for nonpayment of college-related bills, or when the amount owed to the college by a students constitutes a financial hardship.
    • The College expects all students in campus housing to attend classes regularly, show academic progress toward a degree, and maintain full-time status. Failure to attend classes on a regular basis, failure to demonstrate academic progress, or failure to maintain full-time status may result in cancellation of campus housing.

 

Cancellation of Rental House Agreement

    • Residents of the rental houses typically sign an agreement for 9 months or 12 months.  Early termination of this agreement will result in deposit forfeiture, a $500 fee and will leave the remaining roommates responsible for the entire balance of rent.
    • Any student suspended or expelled from the rental houses as a result of disciplinary action is financially responsible for the remaining balance of the residence agreement.
    • The college has the right, using established procedures, to suspend, withdraw or change accommodations, guest privileges or access to campus accommodations to any person(s) for violation of the college regulations, for health and safety reasons, when the resident is no longer a student, for nonpayment of college-related bills, or when the amount owed to the college by a students constitutes a financial hardship.
    • The College expects all students in campus housing to attend classes regularly, show academic progress toward a degree, and maintain full-time status.
