As identified in the Student Code of Conduct, all full-time, unmarried students are required to live on campus unless they meet and are approved for an exception. The requirement to participate in the Residence Life program continues unless and until the student applies for and is granted an exception to the residency requirement, per the conditions and procedures outlined. For returning residents, an application for an exception from the policy and/or relief from a current Resident Agreement must be received in via email or physical letter in the Residence Life Office by November 1 for the following Spring semester and by April 1 for the following Fall semester. Late applications for an exception may not be considered until the following review period.
For Fall 2020-Spring 2021: Requests related to COVID-19 and its impact will be considered on a case-by-case basis. In your application of exception, simply include your circumstances and submit normally.

The primary reasons why the resident student may be approved to terminate the Resident Agreement for a specific time period after it has been submitted to the Residence Life Office include:
