2020-2021 Contract Release Fee Schedule

Students who sign a housing contract for any period of time during the 2020-2021 academic year but seek to be released from the contract will be subject to the proposed contract release fee schedule listed below.

FALL CONTRACT RELEASE FEE SCHEDULE

Date Range Amount
Before Move In $0
After Move In – 9/15/20 25% housing charge
9/16/20 – 9/29/20 50% housing charge
9/30/20 and after 100% housing charge

*The last day to cancel the “Residence Hall and Dining Services Contract – Fall 2020 (8/23/2020-11/20/2020)” for any reason is prior to move in. All future requests will be processed in accordance to the contract release process.  Please note that submission of a contract release request for financial and medical reasons after moving in does not ensure that a release will be granted.

SPRING CONTRACT RELEASE FEE SCHEDULE

Date Range Amount
By 2/9/21 $0
2/10/21 – 2/22/21 $750
2/23/21 – 3/1/21 25% housing charge
3/2/21 – 3/8/21 50% housing charge
3/9/21 and after 100% housing charge

BOARD PLAN REFUND SCHEDULE

Students on an A La Carte board plan will receive a refund that is based on the actual usage of the meal plan points, so long as the semester has not yet concluded. Any points that are unspent after the conclusion of the semester are non-refundable. For example, if you are released from your housing contract mid semester and have 375 points remaining, you will receive a board refund of $375. However, if you are released from your housing contract in January for the spring semester only, you will not receive a refund for the remaining points from your fall meal plan.

Students on the Carte Blanche plan will be refunded at a weekly rate for each week not in residence. For example, if you are released from your housing contract 3 weeks in to the fall semester and have 150 points remaining, you will receive a refund for the cost of the remaining weeks as well as the value of your unspent points. However, if you are released from your housing contract in January for the spring semester only, you will not receive a refund for your fall semester’s unspent points.

For spring 2021 only, students may request to cancel their housing and dining contract for a partial refund through March 8, 2021.
