Room and Board Adjustment

Room Adjustments
  1. A room is reserved in a residence hall for a student for the entire academic year (fall and spring semesters) or the remaining portion thereof upon submission of the Housing Contract. If the student attends the University during the fall and spring semesters, having executed the contract, the full room and board fees for the academic year must be paid.

  2. A first-time resident student is permitted to terminate his/her housing contract without penalty at any time prior to the close of business on the first Fridayof that academic semester. If the student terminates resident status beyond this date, after taking occupancy, the student's room charge will be forfeited.

  3. If the student is dismissed from the University or residence halls for disciplinary reasons, the student and/or parent/guardian will not be relieved from the obligation to pay all room charges and damages for the semester in which the student is dismissed.

  4. If the student is dismissed from the University for academic reasons at the end of the fall semester or voluntarily terminates status as a student at the close of the fall semester, payment of room and board for the spring semester will not become due.

Board Adjustments
  1. A student executing a Housing Contract is required to maintain one of the residential student meal plans as published. A student who terminates his/her housing contract prior to the close of business on the first Friday of an academic semester will be refunded the full amount of the designated meal plan provided that only normal usage of the meal plan has occurred until the time of cancellation. Any excessive use of the meal plan, as defined by the usage chart provided by the University, shall be deemed the student's responsibility and will be billed directly to his/her student account.

  2. If a student terminates residency status beyond this date, but remains a student of the University, his/her meal plan will remain active for the student's use until the completion of the term in which the cancellation was processed.

  3. If the student processes a complete University withdrawal beyond the close of business on the first Friday of the semester, the student's meal plan charge will be forfeited.

  4. If the student is dismissed from the University or residence halls for disciplinary reasons, the student and/or guardian will not be relieved from the obligation to pay all meal plan charges for the semester in which the student is dismissed.
