Apply for an Exception
Freshman Residency Requirement exceptions may be submitted for review and each request is reviewed on an individual basis. Exception request applications are found on a student’s Residence Dashboard and require additional verification documentation. Decisions and related charges for not meeting the Freshman Residency Requirement are not appealable.
