Refunds


Refund of Living Expenses (Room and Meal Charges)

A student officially withdrawing from the residence hall is eligible to receive a pro-rated room and meal charge based on the number of calendar days since the residence hall officially opened without regard to the date the student actually moved in.  The residence halls opening dates are August 16, 2020 and January 10, 2021.

The $75 application fee is not refundable under any circumstances.  Application fees may not be transferred.

A student withdrawing from the residence hall for any reason is eligible to a pro-rated room and meal charge as follows:

  • 1st day through 10th day – 75% refund
  • 11th day through 20th day – 50% refund
  • 21st day through 25th day – 25% refund
  • After the 25th day – 0% refund

Each student living in the residence hall is required to select a residence hall meal plan offered by the University Dining program.  Meal plan selections are made at the beginning of the contract period and will roll from fall to spring unless changed by the student.  All changes must be made by the close of the business on the first Friday of each semester.

Meal plan contracts are pro-rated in the same fashion as room fees.  (See above.)
