All students classified as a freshman and under the age of 21 for the current academic term, who decide not to reside on-campus must complete and return this form to the Office of Housing/Residence Life and Dining Services before the first day of classes. This form must be completed every year until the student no longer meets the stated criteria. Students who do not return the Residency Exemption Form will be assigned to University housing until the University receives confirmation that the student is living with a parent/legal guardian or is otherwise exempt. Charges for housing and meal plans may be applied to the student’s account until confirmation of residency is received.
Once the freshman residency form is completed and turned into the housing office, your request will be approved unless you receive an email to your APSU student account indicating you have been denied an exemption.
