If you are released from your Contract and you move out of the residence halls before the end of the Contract, fees will be reimbursed prorated to the Contract cancellation date. A final review of your account (Room and Board and Plus Plan usage) will determine if you would receive a refund or be required to pay additional fees.
STAYING WHEN THE UNIVERSITY IS CLOSED – BREAK HOUSING
The residence halls close during the University’s Winter break period. During this time, students do not have access to their room and are not charged for room and board in their overall rate. In order to accommodate our international, out-of-state, and foster youth students, we designate a group of buildings to remain open for those who cannot go home. Students who need this “break housing” will pay an additional fee.
Minimal services are provided during these times (i.e. limited meal service, only emergency staffing). Break housing applications will be available once we near Winter Break. The additional fees are due December 5, 2014.
