Students who are not approved to cancel their contract are still financially responsible for their housing contract.

Withdrawing for Academic or Medical Reasons

A student who is permitted or required to withdraw from the University for significant academic or medical reasons will receive refunds as outlined under the University refund policy in the Student Handbook.

Cancellations for Fraternity Move-Over

Individuals moving into fraternity houses must cancel their housing under guidelines for fraternity move-over. These guidelines can be obtained from the Office of Residence Life.
