Due to the recently announced changes to the fall 2020 semester, Housing & Residential Engagement understands there are questions about living in residence halls after Thanksgiving Break. We want to reassure students they do not have to move out of their residence hall when the campus moves to alternative instruction for the final two weeks of the semester following Thanksgiving Break.
For those who choose to move out of the halls at Thanksgiving Break, we will provide qualifying residents with prorated credits for their housing and dining purchases. These credits are calculated on a per-day basis from Nov. 25 through Dec. 10 and will be applied directly to student accounts by the end of the fall semester. These will display as a reduction of the semester’s cost for students who have an outstanding balance; however, if the student account is paid in full, the credits will appear as a refund.
Post-Thanksgiving Break Pro-Rated Credit Details
- Residents who opt to move out and receive prorated credits should notify Housing & Residential Engagement before Nov. 13 and return their key to the Housing Office by Nov. 24. Additional information about this process will be sent at a later date.
- Students who cancel their housing contract after Nov. 24 will be held to the full Terms and Conditions of the agreement.
- Residents who choose to stay on campus after Nov. 24 will not be eligible for housing or dining credits.
- Students with a commuter meal membership who do not live on campus will automatically receive credits applied to their student account based on the remaining value of their fall meal membership as of Nov. 25. No action is needed.
Housing & Residential Engagement remains committed to being a valuable partner to all members of the campus community during this pandemic. For any questions regarding these credits, please contact Housing & Residential Engagement at firstname.lastname@example.org or 405-974-2746.
