First and Second Year Residency Requirement Exemption Request Form

The university requires that all first and second year students live on campus.  If you are currently faced with an emergency situation or extenuating circumstance that the University should be aware of please submit this form.  Once the form is completed it will be automatically submitted for review at the next Committee meeting.  Each request is reviewed on a case-by-case basis.  Please allow 2 to 3 weeks for review and response.
Important Message for All Financial Aid Applicants:

Approval of this request may change your offer of financial assistance, due to a reduction in your annual estimated cost of attendance (eliminating costs for room and board).  Most financial assistance offers are created using an estimated cost of attendance, which includes on campus room and board costs.
