For on-campus housing, you must submit a $100 deposit to secure your room and receive a housing assignment. You will not receive your housing assignment until you pay the deposit. This deposit will be applied as a payment to the student account reducing the balance due for the first semester that you live on campus. You need to submit this deposit once for each academic year. You do not need to submit it each semester. The Housing Preference Form will instruct you on how to pay the $100 deposit.

Unused meal plans are forfeited at the end of the semester. Any unused Eagle Dollars may be carried over from fall to spring but will be forfeited at the end of spring.
