Food Service and Housing

CANCELLATIONS AND REFUNDS

Once the student has signed the housing/food license agreements, the student is obligated to pay these fees for the academic year.

FOOD SERVICES

If a student is released from the room and board license agreement prior to the first meal served fall semester (spring semester for spring only), all fees are refunded. If a student cancels the license agreement for reasons authorized by the university, on or after the first day of meal service, refunds will be made only to those students who receive approval in accordance with food service policy. Refunds for board fees may be contingent upon meal usage and contractual terms/conditions with the food service vendor, and are issued according to the same schedule as housing fees.

HOUSING

If a student cancels the license agreement before Aug. 1 (Dec. 1 for spring only), all fees except the deposit will be refunded. Cancellations between July 31 (Dec. 1 for spring only) and the opening date of the residence halls will forfeit the $100 deposit in addition to 25 percent of the room charge for the semester. If the license agreement is cancelled on or before the opening date of the residence halls or apartments for reasons authorized by the university, refunds will be made only to those students who receive approval in accordance with Residential Life and Housing policy. Refunds for room and board are issued according to the following schedule:

  • Cancellation through the second week of classes–75 percent refund;
  • Cancellation from the third through sixth week of classes–50 percent refund;
  • Cancellation from the seventh through eighth week of  classes–25 percent refund;
  • Cancellation after the eighth week of classes–no refund  issued.

Special Fees

Refund of course-related special fees are prorated on the basis of actual usage. Authorization for a refund of special fees must be originated by the department chair.
