Cancellation Policy

  • Students may request to be released from their contract by submitting in writing their request to Housing Office at least 45 days prior to the beginning of the semester to avoid any penalty charges. It is advisable to call the office to verify that the written notification has been received. All requests will be reviewed and students will be notified by email if their request has been approved.  For 2019-20 License Agreement, the cancellation deadline is July 8, 2019. 
  • If your admission status is rescinded or you decide not to attend Cal Poly Pomona, you must submit in writing your cancellation request to the Housing Office. Changes to your admission status, disqualifications, or decisions not to attend are NOT an automatic cancellation of your housing contract. It is the student's responsibility to notify Housing of their cancellation.

Don't Forget: to add to your contacts to avoid the email from being redirected to your email's junk/spam folder.
