Due to the pandemic, the late departure process is not available for the 2020-2021 academic year.
Late departures at the end of the Fall semester are not permitted. If travel or other circumstances make it impossible to leave on time, residents will need to arrange for alternate accommodations.
At the end of the Spring semester, any student (except for residents of Circle Apartments) required to be on campus after the published Spring check-out date (during Senior Week) must receive written approval from the Office of Residential Life to remain in your room assignment. Students who fail to check out as required will be assessed a $100.00 unauthorized presence fee.
On campus graduating seniors do not need to submit a request. All will be approved to stay until 12:00 PM (noon) on the Monday following Commencement.
Residents of Emerson Hall may be required to move to a different Emerson room during Senior Week to accommodate special guests. Meal plans are automatically extended only for students asked to stay by the Commencement Committee.
Students approved to stay are expected to fulfill work and volunteer commitments, and must check out within 24 hours of their last work shift or campus event. Supervisors and coordinators should notify the Office of Residential Life of students who miss shifts or events for unacceptable reasons.
Eligible Reasons for Late Departure
On campus residents required to be here after the published Spring check-out date for on campus employment, athletic participation, academics (not including May Term courses), or Commencement-related participation (such as Senior Week volunteers) are eligible for late departure.
You must complete the Late Departure Request Form requesting to check out on a date later than the published closing date. Approval is not guaranteed.
Students found in a closed residence hall or apartment who are unapproved after the published closing time are subject to immediate removal from the building, a student conduct referral, and a $100.00 fine. This also applies to students who fail to check out of their rooms by the required check-out time.
