SENIOR INCENTIVE CREDIT
Each fall, Residential Life offers a $2,000 senior year credit to the first 250 sophomore students who commit to live on-campus as seniors. Recognizing that many students choose senior year off-campus housing as early as sophomore year, the University will offer up to a $2,000 senior year incentive credit to students who commit in the fall of their sophomore year to remain on campus as seniors. This offering underscores our belief in the need for senior leaders in residence halls, while better aligning this discernment process with the current practices of local property owners who often market senior year housing to students during their sophomore year. These commitments will also help the University more effectively plan for future residential capacity as we seek to attract more seniors to campus.
For more information, please click here. The application opens online this Thursday, Sept. 15 at 10 a.m.
