New Applicants

How to apply

  • Housing applications for the 2017-2018 academic year opened Monday, October 10, 2016 at 2pm Central Time (USA).
  • Before an incoming student can submit a housing application, the $200 confirmation deposit must be paid to the Office of Admissions. Incoming students will not be able to log into and submit the housing application until two to three business days after the deposit is submitted.
  • After two to three business days, incoming students may apply for housing by paying a $50 application fee (non-refundable) and the $250 housing prepayment (refundable). The only forms of payment accepted are MasterCard, VISA and Discover credit cards. Incoming students will “e-sign” a housing agreement. If the incoming student is under 19 years of age, a parent/guarantor must also agree to the terms of the housing agreement. By accepting the agreement, the incoming student affirms that the parent/guarantor accepts the agreement as well.
  • Incoming students who submit the housing application are signing and agreeing to a two-semester contract (fall and spring semester).
  • Incoming students must submit the housing application and make the $300 payment ($250 prepayment and $50 application fee) in order to establish a housing priority date (i.e., the time/date stamp on your completed application). The priority date will NOT be established until the student’s application is submitted and payment is received.
  • Immediately following submission of the housing application, University Housing and Residence Life will send an email receipt acknowledging application submission and payment to the incoming student’s Tigermail account. Incoming students should make a habit of checking Tigermail daily to ensure that important correspondence are not missed.
