On-Campus Living Requirement
All first year students are required to live in a residence hall on campus.
For the 2013-2014 academic year, a first year student is defined as an individual who receives a high school diploma in January 2013 or later. PSEO or Advanced Placement credits are not considered when determining first year status.
Students may qualify for an exemption to this policy if they:
- are living with a parent or guardian at their primary residence within a 35 mile radius of campus.
- are enrolled in 9 or fewer credit hours during both the fall and spring semesters.
- have custody of a child.
- are married.
- have extenuating circumstances such as a severe medical condition, financial hardship for which there is no other solution, or family consideration.
Students should not make alternate living arrangements prior to submitting a request and receiving approval for doing so.
A request may be submitted electronically below:
The residence hall contract is in effect for the full academic year.
Requests to live off campus should be submitted at least thirty days prior to moving in.
Once a student moves into a residence hall, he or she is expected to remain on campus for the duration of the contract period. This includes students who are from the local area.
