In short, as long as you complete the contract break request paperwork, submit all of your materials before December 1st and finish the full fall semester with the specified move out date in December, you may qualify for the reduced contract break fee of $75 (without the need to find a substitute or complete a contract buyout). If you do not meet all of the conditions outlined in the attachment for a reduced rate contract break fee, then the full $300 contract break fee may apply, along with the requirement to find a substitute or complete a contract buyout (at an additional fee). The full terms are outlined in the document that will download when you click the link I provided you with (above).
