Applying for Housing!
On-campus living supports the academic, personal, and social growth of college students. All first-time freshmen who graduated from a high school outside the local service area are required to complete a housing application and pay the initial housing fee to be eligible to enroll for classes. Due to the high demand for this rewarding experience, room assignments and preferences are not guaranteed, and students are encouraged to apply early.

To apply for housing:
