Cancellation:
Many great incentives are available for students who commit early to living in the residence halls or Greek Court.  The decision to cancel the Early Bird Contract must be made by December 13, 2013. After December 13, 2013, students are obligated to their Early Bird Contract for the 2014/2015 academic year, addressed in section c below. However, if students will no longer be enrolled at the university, the terms of cancellation are the same as the regular room and board contract, see sections a and b below.

a. If the student cancels this contract and withdraws from University Housing and Dining Services and the University on or before June 12, 2014, for the Fall semester the student shall be entitled a refund of the housing down payment.

b. If the student cancels this contract and withdraws from University Housing and Dining Services and the University after June 12, 2014, for the Fall semester or December 12, 2014, for the Spring Semester and has made the housing down payment, the housing down payment of $250.00 shall be forfeited. The $250.00 housing down payment is not required for students continuing from the fall into the spring semester; however, if the student cancels after December 12, 2014, the $250.00 cancellation charge will be billed to your university account.

c. If the student cancels this Early Bird Contract after December 13, 2013, has made the housing down payment and is enrolled at the University during the term of this contract, the student shall be required to pay the entire room and board charges for the Fall and Spring Semesters.
