Current residence hall students can complete their housing Contract for University Housing for the 2014/15 Academic Year through the MySoutheast Portal. The contract link will be accessible from the Student Processes tab. The steps for completing a Contract for University Housing are detailed below.
Are you wondering who is required to live in the residence halls? Southeast has established a requirement that all full-time students live on campus for two years. In accordance with the residency requirement, all full-time students must live on campus unless they meet at least one of the following criteria for exemption from the residency requirement:
The Contract for University Housing is a legally binding agreement for the full term of the agreement. Contracts are officially accepted and binding 72 hours after receipt by the Office of Residence Life. Any request to cancel this contract must be made in writing and meet the requirements established by the University. Cancellations are not automatic and all requests are subject to review and approval by the University. The Office of Residence Life will state all cancellation decisions in writing.
Students must contact the Office of Residence Life before moving out of the residence halls to request cancellation of the contract. A Petition to Terminate Contract form must be completed by the student and submitted with all documentation required to verify the stated reason for the request. The request is not considered approved until processed through the Office of Residence Life and a written decision is provided.
Cancellations will be approved based upon published reasons such as when there is a: (1) change in status with the University (i.e., graduation, transfer, withdrawal, suspension) or (2) change in marital or dependent status (i.e., marriage, dependent children).
Students approved for a contract cancellation will incur financial obligations as outlined by the Petition to Terminate Contract form.
Students not required submitting a deposit will be held responsible for the same financial obligations as outlined on the Petition to Terminate Contract form.
The contract will remain in force and the student will continue to be financially obligated for all room and board fees until the date the University agrees, in writing, to cancel the contract and the student officially checks out of housing. If the student chooses to leave the University, this contract cannot be cancelled prior to your official withdrawal which is the cancellation of classes.
