If your plans change and you cannot live on campus, please be aware of the following deadlines and procedures.
June 1, 2013 - Last day to cancel for the 2013-2014 year with refund of deposit.
July 31, 2013 - Last day to cancel with forfeited deposit, but with no further financial obligation.
Students needing to cancel their housing or meal plan contracts after the July 31 deadline must complete the Request to Cancel appeals process. The form can be downloaded here
, printed, and submitted to the Department of Housing and Residence Life.
Students should complete the form, write their own narrative statement of their circumstances, and attach any supporting documentation. Supporting documents provided by third parties such as parents should be notarized.
Requests to cancel because of Academic Internships or Marriage need only submit the required documentation, and are exempt from the hearing process.
Students Graduating, Withdrawing, Transferring, or Not Enrolled will be verified with the Registrar's Office. Withdrawals will be subject to the University's regular 75%/25% refund deadlines and policies for tuition and fees.
All other Requests to Cancel are considered on a case by case basis by the Housing and Meal Plan Appeals Committee, which makes recommendations to the Vice Provost for Student Affairs on the outcome of appeals. Appeals must concretely demonstrate extenuating circumstances which make it impossible or impractical for the student to fulfill the terms of the contract(s).
