APPLICATIONS FOR FALL 2022 CLOSE APRIL 15th.
All full-time Bethany College students are required to live on campus unless they meet one of the following criteria:
1. Age 24 or older (by Sep. 1 for the fall semester and by Feb. 1 for the spring semester)
2. Plan to live with a parent or legal guardian within Salina or McPherson Counties (Verification Form found on eSwede)
3. Have full or partial custody of a dependent child (as defined by federal regulations)*
4. Are currently married (paperwork required)
5. Are a veteran with at least 1 year of active duty service
6. Have a health concern that makes living on campus housing impossible**
7. Financial based concerns***
*Proof of custody may be required
**Health concerns must be documented with a note from a doctor and will be evaluated by a committee
***Financial contingency will be reviewed by a committee for approval
If you do not meet one of the criteria or if your application is denied by the Off Campus Housing Committee, you can email Matt Pfannenstiel (firstname.lastname@example.org
). Please include all relevant information in your appeal letter; the more insight you can give into your unique situation, the better your chances of being approved.
There are NO guarantees that your application or appeal will be accepted.
Students are allowed to submit one off-campus application per academic year. Students can appeal the decision made by the committee one time. The decision for appeals is final.
Certain criteria require paperwork before they are approved. Please email that paperwork to email@example.com
or mail it to the Student Development Office 335 E Swensson Street, Lindsborg KS, 67456.
Returning students must reapply to live off campus for each school year.
Any student living off campus may have their financial aid adjusted. Please talk with the Office of Financial Aid to figure out how your aid might be adjusted before submitting the off campus housing registration.
Be reminded that it is the student’s responsibility to make sure their application is approved before signing a lease; having signed a lease does not mean you will be automatically approved for off campus living.
All off campus applications for the fall semester MUST be submitted by April 15 for returning students and by July 1 (or within 7 days of acceptance to Bethany College) for new students. All off campus applications for the spring semester MUST be submitted by December 15 for returning and new students or within 7 days of acceptance to Bethany College for new students.
Again, applying to live off campus is NOT a guarantee that you will be approved to live off campus.
