Yes, you must submit the Initial Payment of $450.00 once you have completed your online Application. If you did not pay your Initial Payment at the time of applying, you can return to your application on the Housing Portal to make the payment. Your application will not be considered complete with our paying the initial payment or receiving a deferment of the initial payment. The remaining charges for rent, meal plan, and security deposit will be posted in July and due beginning in August.
Due to COVID-19 for the 2020-21 academic year, during the application process, students may elect to defer their housing initial payment. The initial payment will be included in the first Fall housing installment due on August 12, 2020.
What if I receive Financial Aid to pay for housing?
If you anticipate receiving or have applied for financial aid, you are still responsible for paying the initial payment. Once your financial aid is disbursed, it will pay your tuition first and the remainder will be used toward housing. If you do not receive enough aid to cover your housing or if your aid is not disbursed, you will be required to pay the balance by the scheduled due date.
What forms of payment do you take?
The University's Student Accounting and Cashering Services accepts payments for University Housing Services. For details on payment options please visit the Student Accounting website.
How do I change my payment plan?
Resident’s may request to change their payment plan in writing (letter or email) or by visiting the Housing Office, Building 74, Monday through Friday between 8:00am-5:00pm. Please keep in mind depending on when the request is received, the change may not be effective until the following semester.
