Spring Forward Process

If there are still applicants remaining on the wait list when it closes in October, those students will be given the option to cancel or to remain on the wait list for Spring (Spring Forward) to be considered for a Spring semester assignment.

In order to Spring Forward, students will need to make their request in writing by emailing the Housing Office (see below). This request cancels the full academic year application and creates an application for Spring.  Since the Spring License Agreement initial payment is lower than what was already paid for the full Academic Year, no additional payment will be required. If assigned, the difference will be credited to the student’s account to be use for a future installment payment. 

Please Note: 

  • Housing for Spring is still first-come, first-served, however, those who were on the Fall wait list and who have asked to Spring Forward before October 31st will have priority. 
  • Spring applicants will be placed on the wait list based on their original application completion date.
  • Spring availability will be determined in early December and Housing will begin to send confirmations for Spring in late December.
