Independent Living Request Form

Independent Living Request Form

Peru State College is a residential college, requiring students to live in campus housing for four (4) semesters. An exception may be granted by the Office of Student Life by completing this form if you have met one of the following requirements listed within the form.

Per the housing contract, I understand the terms of the housing agreement include room and board for one full academic year beginning in the fall and ending at the conclusion of the spring semester. If entered into after the academic year begins, this agreement applies only to the balance of the academic year. In the event special circumstances exist, students may appeal the terms of the contractual period to the Office of Residence Life. These circumstances include a severe medical hardship, which is directly related to residence hall living, change in family status (a copy of an appropriate certificate required), active military duty, or complete withdrawal from college. An agreement may be cancelled at the conclusion of the fall term without financial obligation for the following reasons: student teaching, graduation, transferring to another institution, change in family status, 100% online courses, or for an unforeseen severe financial hardship. A written appeal for a severe financial hardship must be submitted and approved by the Office of Residence Life before an agreement may be cancelled.
