Is there a Damage Deposit?

  • Room Deposit
    Full-time undergraduate day students entering the college during and following the 2014 Fall semester will be required to pay a $300 enrollment deposit to reserve their space in the incoming class. No deposit will be refunded after May 1. All students deposited by May 1 will be guaranteed campus housing pending space limitations. Campus housing assignments will be finalized and room/board charged will be applied by July 1. Students must have all required paperwork (including requests to live off campus) submitted by this date. Students who deposit after July 1 will be assigned housing, if available, on a first-come, first-served basis. Of this $300 enrollment deposit, $100 covers a residence hall damage deposit that may be refundable at the time that the student either graduates or receives permission to live off campus (less any assessed fees due to damages). The remaining $200 is used by the College to cover many of the services provided during the first year. Students who entered the institution prior to the 2014 Fall semester and who have a residence hall damage deposit pending with the college will receive a reimbursement of those monies as noted above.

    Students that fail to check-out of their residence hall room at the end of the year will receive a fine and forfeit their $100 deposit that will no longer be refundable based on the non-check-outs.

  • Spring to Fall Room Hold Assessment
    Beginning in the 2014 Spring semester, all full-time undergraduate day students will be required to pay a
    $200 Spring to Fall Room Hold charge. To participate in the housing lottery and/or to register for upcoming Fall classes, students must either: (a) pay the $200 charge to the college, or (b) submit the required documentation to the housing office and receive a waiver permitting that student permission to live off campus as directed by the college’s residency requirement. Those students who pay the $200 charge to reserve a campus residence hall room and who occupy that room during the Fall semester will have the monies credited to their account at the end of the first month of classes. The $200 charge may be paid at the College’s business office.

    Note that students graduating in May or the summer will not be required to pay the $200 room hold fee and that the $200 Spring to Fall Room Hold charge is not refundable if students choose not to return to the college in the Fall semester.
