Application for Permission to Live Off Campus

Application for Permission to Live Off Campus

  • IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ

    This completed application must be submitted to the Student Life Office no later than June 30th if you wish to live off campus during the academic year (Fall and Spring Semesters). After this date, students will be committed to a residence hall contract for the entire academic year. Breaking the residence hall contract will result in a $1000.00 penalty fee and loss of housing deposit.
  • (Must live on at least 6 semesters)
  • (Must have at least a 2.5 cumulative GPA)
  • All full-time Kentucky Wesleyan College students, regardless of age, who receive the equivalent of 75% tuition in institutional aid: KWC unrestricted, restricted, and endowed scholarships for academic, athletic, talent, and need base are required to live on-campus unless they qualify as commuters and are living with an immediate family member or a legal guardian over 21 years of age, who live within 30 miles of campus, or are classified as independent. We define immediate family members as parents, grandparents, and siblings over the age of 21.
    (Financial Aid will be contacted to verify status.)
  • Students whose applications are approved have two weeks from the date of their notification letter to accept or reject their permission to live off campus. Once a student has rejected their permission to live off campus for the following year, s/he may not reapply for permission to live off campus for that same year.

    Please note that, due to differences in the total cost of education with off-campus housing, students who move off campus may experience a reduction in financial aid eligibility. Depending upon the student’s eligibility, there may also be a reduction in the amount of financial aid received. Any reductions in aid will be made in compliance with federal, state and institutional regulations and policies.
