Boston College Housing Cancellation Fee and Refund Policy 2017-2018

The following policy takes effect on June 1st, 2017.  The goals of the policy are to encourage students planning to live off-campus to notify Residential Life of their intention to do so earlier so that more students seeking on-campus housing can be accommodated, to maximize the use of Boston College's university housing, and to ensure that students utilizing university housing are being charged appropriately.

In order for a student to cancel their university housing, they need to fill out a Leave of Absence (from Housing) form.  The Leave of Absence form can be found on the Agora Portal, under My ResLife and then Web Forms.  Visit our Leave of Absence page for more details.

 

Refund Policy for Undergraduate Students No Longer Enrolled

For undergraduate students studying abroad or no longer enrolled at the University (e.g. withdraw, transfer, leave of absence, academic dismissal, conduct suspension):

> Full refund any time before the start of the semester.
> Regular tuition refund schedule applies to housing during the semester.

 

Refund Policy for Undergraduate Students Remaining Enrolled at Boston College

For students withdrawing or leaving housing but remaining enrolled at the University (e.g. move off-campus) and not participating in an approved study abroad program:

Fall Semester

> Full refund until May 31.
> 20% room rate cancellation fee between June 1 and July 14.
> 40% room rate cancellation fee between July 15 and Fall semester move-in day.
> No refund applied after Fall semester move-in day.

Spring Semester

> Full refund until October 31.
> 20% room rate cancellation fee between November 1 and November 30.
> 40% room rate cancellation fee between December 1 and Spring semester move-in day.
> No refund applied after Spring semester move-in day.

 

Exemptions and Appeals

Students who receive on-campus housing within the refund periods will have 72 hours from receiving their assignment to withdraw and receive a full refund.  After 72 hours, the housing refund schedule would apply.

Students charged a cancellation fee or not receiving a refund will have the ability to appeal.  Appeals must be made in writing and received within 15 days of submission of the housing cancellation.  Requests will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis by an ad hoc committee appointed by the Associate Vice President of Student Affairs.
