Deposits

General Deposit

Every student must make a $100 deposit to protect the University from damage to or loss of University property. Failure to pay promptly will bar the student from re-admission and from issuance of official transcripts from the University. This deposit, assuming there are no outstanding charges, will be returned upon the student graduating or withdrawing from school. Students leaving the University without graduating or withdrawing automatically forfeit their property deposit refund if Student Business Services doesn't receive a request for the refund. Deposits not refunded within four years from the date of last attendance will be forfeited into a student deposit scholarship account. 

Room Deposit

A deposit of $300 and a nonrefundable $50 application fee are required to apply for a room in a residence hall or one of our university apartments. The deposit will be retained to offset charges for damages or late cancellation, or to keep the application on an active waiting list. A reservation may be canceled and the deposit refunded upon request prior to signing a housing contract. After a housing contract has been signed for the next academic year, deposits are not refunded. Cancellations after a student has been assigned housing are subject to additional penalties.

Enrollment Deposits

To accept an admission offer into certain programs, an applicant may be required to pay a nonrefundable enrollment deposit to hold his/her seat in the class. This deposit is applied to the tuition/fees statements of students who matriculate into the program. Individuals who ultimately don't begin classes in the program will forfeit the deposit. Contact your department for additional information regarding your program’s deposit policy.
