2015-2016 Shepherd University Catalog [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Room and Board


Room and board charges must be paid in full at the time of registration. Once a room has been occupied, the student is liable for rent for the entire semester or summer term. In accordance with the residence hall contract, no room rent will be refunded when a student withdraws from the university. Students who withdraw from campus after the first day of classes will have meal charges prorated, but no deduction will be made from room rental during the absence. Allow four to six weeks for refunds following the date of withdrawal from the university. All room deposits and board refunds must be authorized by the director of residence life.

For new freshman, transfer, and continuing students, written notice of cancellation of room reservation must be received in Residence Life. A withdrawal of a housing contract will result in forfeiture of the advance room deposit. Charges continue to accrue until cancellation notice has been received and approved.
