A student registering for the University for the fall and spring that signs up for student housing is responsible for paying for room and board charges for the entire academic year. If for any reason a student withdraws from the University or moves from the residence hall, the student remains responsible for the room and board charges for both semesters. A student registering in the fall for the spring semester and for housing in the residence hall is responsible for payments for the entire spring semester. There will be no refund of room and board fees or cancellation of room and board charges assessed. The University also reserves the right to remove a student from the residence hall for a breach of this agreement or a violation of University policy. Such an action by the University does not entitle the student to refund or cancellation of room and board.
