Early Arrival Information


Early Arrival Request Form


Early Arrivals will generally be approved for the following reasons:


Siblings of Students Sponsored for Early Arrival – Students whose siblings are approved to be on campus early may request an early arrival for the same day as their sibling. The charge for these students will be $25/night*.


Long-Distance Drive – Students coming from a distance that requires significant travel may report a day earlier to allow sufficient time to make the trip to and from the College. A general guideline is anything over a five-hour, one-way trip (over 300 miles). The charge for these students is $25/night*.


Student Teaching/Athletic Training– Students who are required to return for student teaching/athletic training in the local school districts as part of a class requirement. A professor's approval is needed for these students to return early. The charge for these students is $25/night*.


Student accounts are billed automatically.

Early Arrivals will NOT be approved for an early arrival for the following reasons:


Leaving an apartment – Students who are renting or subleasing off-campus apartments in the summer need to be aware of when the lease agreement ends. Students will not be allowed to move onto campus until the appropriate move-in date, regardless of renting status off-campus. It is the responsibility of the student to make plans concerning living arrangements and belongings until the appropriate move-in date.


Local, Non-Campus Responsibilities – Students will not be allowed to return to campus early to pursue off-campus jobs or volunteer duties that would bring them back early. It is the student’s responsibility to make plans concerning living arrangements prior to the move-in date.


Personal Belongings – Students may not move in personal belongings prior to check-in.


Roommates on Campus Early – Students whose roommates are approved to be on campus early may not move in with the roommate, then check in on move-in day. If it is determined that an unauthorized student lives in a residence hall prior to the move-in date, the student will be charged an improper check-in/check-out fee of $150.00*.
