Download Form

Freshmen (defined as students who have compiled fewer than 30 hours of college credit) are required to live in college housing for at least two semesters. Exempted from this policy are students who have reached their twenty-first birthday prior to the first day of classes; veterans of at least two years’ active military service; married students; students who commute to school daily from their permanent, legal residence of their parents (within a 60 mile radius of campus).

Any student who wishes to appeal a Freshman Residency exemption decision may do so. Appeals must be submitted in writing with any supporting documentation. The student should present the appeal to the Vice President for Student Services.
