On-campus residence affords students added opportunity to become fully involved in college life. All full-time students with 89 or less credit hours must live in the residence halls or with a local parent/legal guardian (within a 50 mile radius of the university). Those students 22 years of age or older are exempted from the policy. Exceptions may be made in special cases, but must have prior approval from the Director of Housing and Residence Life. If a student does not live either with a parent/legal guardian or in the halls and has not applied for an exception, the student may be subject to conduct sanctioning from the University and/or housing fines.
