A pro-rated refund will be made if a student moves out of the residence halls due to personal illness (confirmed in writing from a licensed physician) or at the request of the University for other than disciplinary reasons (i.e., marriage, academic suspension).

A percentage refund will be made if the student is forced to move out due to withdrawal from the University.
