Residence Students – Clear to Move In Policy

Before being permitted to move into a residence hall, students must be cleared by the Office of the Bursar.

A student is cleared when the entire financial liability including tuition, all fees, housing, and meal plan charges are covered by any or all of the following:

  • Federal financial aid
  • New York State Aid (including TAP)
  • Institutional aid
  • Federal student loans
  • Federal parent loans
  • Private student loans
  • Transact Payment Plan
  • Outside scholarships

In order for these items to be considered as payment toward your bill, the Office of Financial Aid must indicate that you have completed all mandatory requirements. This includes but is not limited to:

  • Completing the FAFSA and
  • Completing the Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) application
  • Submitting and completing all necessary documents
    • These must also be reviewed and approved by the Financial Aid Office
  • Applying for and being approved for private student loans.
    • These must also be reviewed and certified by the Financial Aid Office.
  • Transact Payment Plans must be established and cover the full remaining balance of the bill (after deducting other sources of payment)
    • Students must be up to date with all monthly installments.
  • Any outside sources of payment must have validating paperwork submitted to the Office of the Bursar for review and approval.

Other departments such as Student Health Services may have other requirements that must be met before a student is cleared to move into a Residence Hall.

Financial Aid Processing Tip: When applying for Federal Direct Parent Loan (PLUS) and/or Alternative Student Loan (ALT), students are encouraged to apply for the PLUS loan and/or ALT loan at least 45 days prior to the start of the semester.

Resident Assistants: Payment waivers for resident assistants (RAs) are processed by the Office of Residence Life. If a student is expecting a residence hall waiver and it is not reflected on the student account, please contact the Director of Residence Life.

Please direct your room and board questions to the Residence Life Office at 516.323.3463.
