Request to Use Financial Aid for Housing Deposit

We are pleased to offer the option of using financial aid to cover the $150 deposit! As soon as aid is posted, if there is enough aid to cover all fees and at least $150 left over, this form can be submitted to Housing.  This means no out of pocket deposit cost. However, the $50 application fee is still required. The deposit will be owed whether or not a student stays enrolled for fall.
