Check-Out Information For Those Who Have Been Suspended

If you have been suspended or dismissed from the University, you are no longer eligible to live in the residence halls or on-campus apartments.  You must therefore check out of your room or apartment in a timely fashion which may require that you make special arrangements to do so.

Move-Out Deadlines

For students living in a residence hall or a single student apartment, the deadline for checking out without being charged a $150 Late Contract Termination Fee plus room charges is Sunday, January 5, 2014 at 6 p.m. 

Students who do not check out properly with a Housing and Residence Life staff member will also be charged a $50 Improper Check-Out Fee.

Students living in a student-family apartment are responsible for rent for 30 days after giving notice to terminate their lease, plus they must pay a $150 termination fee if the check-out does not occur between the first day of exam week and 5 p.m. on the Monday immediately following the last day of the semester (per the terms of the lease).  To give notice before Thursday, January 2, 2014, please contact the Woodland Park desk (906-227-2458).  The desk staff will have the appropriate form to use.

Appealing Your Suspension

As indicated in the correspondence pertaining to your academic status, you may appeal your academic suspension or dismissal to the Admissions and Academic Policies Committee (AAPC).  If you appeal your status as it pertains to the 2013 Winter Semester, your Academic Suspension/Dismissal Appeal Form and any necessary attachments must be received in the Academic and Career Advisement Center at least five (5) working days prior to the first day of classes (Monday, January 13, 2014).  Important Note:  Your appeal will get earliest consideration if your documents are received in the Academic and Career Advisement Center on or before Friday, January 3, 2014.

If you appeal your suspension, you will be able to keep your room or apartment until after your appeal has been considered and decided upon.  If your appeal is denied, you will have 48 hours from the date you are notified of the appeal decision in order to check-out of your room or apartment.  If you do not check out within the 48 hours, you will be charged the daily rate for your room until you properly checkout with Housing and Residence Life staff.  You will also be charged a $50 termination fee.

Checking Out of Your Room or Apartment

  2. Remove all of your belongings from your room and clean the room and bathroom or your portion of the room and bathroom so that if a new student is assigned, he or she can readily move in.  If you do not prepare your portion of the room and bathroom for a new occupant, you may be charged $250 for failing to prepare the room correctly.
  3. Meet with the residence hall staff member who lets you into the building to complete a Residence Hall Contract Termination Form, review any damages that occurred in your room since you moved in for which you are wholly or partially responsible with the staff member checking you out, and return your key to him or her prior to leaving the building.  Your check out will not be finalized until your roommate has had an opportunity to comment upon any reported or noted damages and any discrepancies are reconciled.
  4. Leave the building.
