A student requesting to living off campus must submit a petition requesting permission, even if a condition noted below is met. If a student fails to submit a petition by the publicized deadline or their petition is denied, the student will be financially responsible for the semester’s room and board fees, whether or not they choose to live on campus and/or use the meal plan. Signing a Housing Lease or Rental Agreement (for off-campus housing) will NOT exempt the student from their financial responsibility for the semester’s room and board fees. If mitigating circumstances arise (e.g., Code of Student Conduct violations) that would lead to a student's approval being revoked, the student will be required to move back on campus and a new petition must be submitted to request to move off campus again.
If you have been previously approved off campus, you do not need to reapply. Once approved off campus, always approved off campus unless your approval has been revoked for conduct reasons.
IF A PETITION IS APPROVED, THE MEAL PLAN WILL CONTINUE AS CURRENTLY ASSIGNED UNLESS THE STUDENT NOTIFIES THE STUDENT LIFE OFFICE DIFFERENTLY BY THE SCHEDULED DEADLINES.
NOTE: You MUST Click Submit on the last page of the application AND see the confirmation page that says "Thank you for applying..." in order to know that your application has been received.
