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 email to the Residence Life Office.

  • 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.
