Refund Policy

Housing Status

When students complete the Housing Contract and pay the damage and housing deposits, students will be given one of the two following housing statuses:

Assigned

This means that the College has housing available for the student. 

Waiting

This means that the College does not have housing available for the student and the student is on a waiting list.  If College housing becomes available, the College will move the student's status "Assigned".  Assignment to the waiting list does not guarantee that College housing will be available for the student. 

Refund/Reduction of Costs

Students who have completed a housing contract and paid a housing deposit will receive a refund or reduction of costs based upon the following schedule:

Students of "Assigned" status who do not attend Penn College

Students of "Assigned" status who do not attend Penn College receive a full reduction of the housing costs but forfeit the housing deposit. Students must notify the Residence Life Office in writing indicating that they will not be attending Penn College. Students can send this written notification via e-mail to the Residence Life Office.

Students of "Assigned" status who check into on-campus housing and withdraw prior to the end of the contract

  • Students who withdraw from the College and check out of on-campus housing on the first day of class receive a full refund of housing cost and the balance of the $100 damage deposit. These students forfeit the housing deposit and the Residence Life Activity Fee.
  • Students who withdraw from the College and check-out of on-campus housing after the first day of class but prior to the end of the third week of class receive a 70% reduction of housing costs and the balance of the $100 damage. These students do not receive a refund of the Residence Life Activity Fee.
  • Students who withdraw from the College after the third week of classes receive the balance of the $100 damage deposit but do not receive any reduction of housing costs or the Residence Life Activity Fee.

Students Involved in Judicial Cases

  • Students who are evicted from on-campus housing receive no reduction of housing costs.
  • For students involved in a judicial case, no determination of reduction of housing costs will be made until the judicial case is resolved.

Students who are of "Waiting" status.

Students who are on the waiting list may remove themselves from the list at anytime and receive a full refund of the housing and damage deposit. To be removed from the list, students need to notify the Residence Life Office in writing indicating that they wish to be removed from the waiting list. Students can send this written notification via e-mail to the Residence Life Office.
