Application Instructions

Before You Apply

  • Review the Residential Boarding Policy and Residential Student Agreement
  • Students who are obligated to the Residential Boarding Policy are required to live in the residence halls for two academic years. 
  •  The Residential Student Agreement is a legally binding agreement, be sure to review and understand the terms of the agreement.
  • Students may request an exemption from the Residential Boarding Policy or from the Residential Student Agreement.  Requests are reviewed by the Housing Exemption Committee and there is no guarantee a request will be granted.  
  • If you are subject to the Residential Boarding Policy or have signed a Residential Student Agreement, we strongly advise you do not sign a lease elsewhere unless your request for exemption has been officially approved and communicated from Housing.
  • You will be offered the opportunity to share important health information.  If you choose to do so, please have your health insurance card and a list of any medications you wish disclose on hand.
  • For first year students, there is a $100 prepayment deposit required to secure housing. If you have not already paid the prepayment deposit through your student account, you will have the opportunity to do so when you apply. You may use a credit/debit card or checking account information to pay electronically. The university does not accept all credit/debit cards, please see the Office of the Bursar website for more information about accepted forms of payment.
