Students who live off campus contrary to policy will be placed on social probation and/or subject to loss of enrollment status and will be billed the room fee for each semester the student is off campus without approval. Requests for exemption from the housing requirement must document extreme circumstances and should be submitted through the Exemption Request Form to the Exemption Request Committee. These requests will be reviewed at least a twice a semester by the Exemption Request Committee.
