Contracts for room and board are for the Fall and Spring semesters (unless a student starts in January at the College) and are available to full-time students (i.e. any student who is carrying twelve or more credits per semester) and are designed for traditional students. Any student carrying less than twelve credits who desires to live in the residence halls must receive permission to do so from the Vice President for Student Affairs/Dean of Students. A signed room contract is a binding obligation between the student and Mount Aloysius College. The student is responsible for satisfying the full financial obligation of the contract on time with published College payment schedules. The student’s account must be cleared or payment arrangements made prior to moving into the residence halls. The student is also obligated to reside in the room stipulated in the contract and to abide by the rules of conduct established by the College. A student’s housing and food service contract is automatically terminated if the student’s enrollment is terminated for any reason or the student is being removed from the residence hall as a result of a disciplinary hearing. Requests to be released from a contract must be made in writing to the Vice President for Student Affairs/Dean of Students.
