Acceptance and Deposit
Although students who are offered admission have until May 1 to notify the University of their decision to attend (in accordance with the University Board Candidates' Reply Date), they are encouraged to submit a deposit as soon as their decision has been made. Earlier deposits will have an advantage in the choice of housing opportunities, including whether or not they are placed into a triple room.* Historically, all students who submit deposits by May 1 have received housing. For Spring 2014/Fall 2014/Spring 2015, resident students are required to submit a deposit of $400; commuter students, $200. This deposit is credited against the charges for the following semester, but it is not refundable should the student not enter the University on the date for which he or she is accepted.
For students who are enrolled in a high school program at the time of their acceptance, it is understood that they will maintain the same level of academic achievement through the remainder of their high school senior year. If a student's work falls below a satisfactory level, the acceptance may be rescinded.
*Students placed in a triple room receive a discount on their housing fee.
