Change in Housing Status
Changes in residential status are granted in extremely unusual circumstances only. Should it become necessary for you to request a change in status from residential to commuting, or vice versa, your written request must be submitted to the associate dean in the Office of Admissions. The Admissions Committee will consider such requests, and a written decision will be sent to the student. Any student who is granted a change from residential to commuting status after May 1 will forfeit the $500 deposit and must then make an additional deposit of $250 to enroll as a commuting student.
