At the end of the Spring semester, any student (except for residents of Circle Apartments and Eastman Hall) 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 noon on the Monday following Commencement.
Meal plans are automatically extended only for students asked to stay by the Commencement Committee (Commencement Eve Concert staff and performers, School of Communication broadcast staff, Theater Arts staff, Dining Services staff, Conference and Event Services staff, etc.) and graduating seniors who have meal plans.
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.
