Technically, freshman and sophomore students are required to live on campus. However, the requirement for sophomores is currently waived . Additionally, students who meet any of the following criteria are AUTOMATICALLY exempted from the requirement and need not apply:

Students who:

  • Will be living with a parent or legal guardian.
  • Will be 20 years of age on the 1st day of classes of the Fall semester
  • Are married
  • Are a military veteran with one or more year of active service
  • Will be taking six or less credits starting the fall semester

Students NOT meeting any of these criteria must apply for an exception. Exceptions generally fall in to one of three categories: medical, financial or other. Please note that religious reasons alone are not sufficient to grant an exception.
