Contract Release Application
The Residential Contract Release Request Form is only an application for release; you are not released from your contract until you receive WRITTEN notification from the Department of Housing and Residence Life.
You should not enter into any additional off campus lease agreements until you have been notified of your release.
The Request for Release must be related to one of the following reasons:
Medical/Psychological, Financial, Marriage, Withdrawal/Transferring, Internship/Practicum/Military, or Study Abroad. Cases cannot be considered until all the necessary facts are collected. Appropriate documentation is required at the time the application is submitted to be considered.
A contract release board comprised of students and staff will review your request, unless it is for Medical/Psychological reasons. All Medical/Psychological applications are forwarded to and reviewed by the Office of Disability Services.
The Department of Housing and Residence Life will keep any of the information provided below and any supporting documents you submit, in confidence. You will be forwarded a decision letter. If you do not agree with the board's decision, you have five (5) business days to appeal in writing to the Director of the Department of Housing and Residence Life.
Please review the Department of Housing and Residence Life's Refund Policy before submission of the Residential Contract Release Request Form.
Contracts at the Flats at Three Seven Four are not eligible for Contract Release.
