Commuter Students


First year students commuting from the primary residence of a parent or legal guardian may apply for an exemption from the freshman residency requirement. If you are planning to commute from the home of a parent or legal guardian, please do not complete the housing contract at this time. If you complete the contract, you cannot cancel it to become a commuting student.

Exemption from the residency requirement may be granted to students who meet certain criteria.
