Deposits and Contract Terms
Application Fee and Initial Deposit
A $75 non-refundable Application Fee is required at the time of application. A $400 Initial Deposit is due at the time of application. The Initial Deposit will automatically be applied after the spring portion of the contract is completed, or the student may choose to roll this payment over to the next fall contract period during Priority Room Selection in October. Refund of the $400 Initial Deposit, due to cancellation prior to occupancy, is determined in the following chart. Students are required to contract for a Dining Plan in addition to a room.
Once the contract has been signed, even if it is after the cancellation dates below, it becomes a binding agreement, a contract between the student (and his/her Guarantor, if required) and the University. All cancellation requests must be submitted to University Student Housing in writing by the student.
