Bills payable in August are processed in early July.
Room charges for returning students reflect the cost of the room they chose during room selection in April.
New students are billed prior to the completion of room assignments and therefore are billed at the traditional-double rate. Once room assignments have been completed, room charges are adjusted up or down to reflect the actual cost of the actual room the student is assigned to. This adjustment appears in the September billing cycle.
Room charges are also adjusted during the year as a result of room changes. When a student moves from a less expensive room to a more expensive room, or vice versa, the room charge is prorated based on the date the room change occurs. Also, as space permits, rooms used to expand housing capacity (triples and quads) are converted to double rooms and are charged as such on a prorated basis.
Bill Adjustments for Triple or Quad Breakdowns
Triples: When a triple breaks down, the remaining two residents will be charged the double rate on a prorated daily basis from the date the departing resident moves. The person moving out is charged on a daily prorated basis for the new room type. The empty space in the triple is not re-filled.
Quads: When a quad breaks down, either the triple rate or double rate will be charged, depending on the number of residents remaining in the room. The charge is on a prorated daily basis from the date the departing resident(s) move. The person moving out is charged on a daily prorated basis for the new room type. The empty space(s) in the quad may be refilled. If that occurs, the room rates will be readjusted to reflect this.
When a quad or triple does break down, the remaining students can submit a Fix-it to have the extra furniture removed. No furniture should be moved into the hallway – it’s unsafe and against fire code.Last updated May 31st, 2013
