Once you have removed all of your personal belongings from your room, cleaned, and are ready for a check-out, follow the procedures listed below to locate an RA. Each student (not just the last student to leave) MUST check-out with an RA or be charged $50.00 Improper Check-out fee to your student account. The RA will not check you out until you have removed all of your personal belongings and are ready to return your key (if applicable). Leaving belongings behind will result in an improper check-out and cleaning fee. Please plan time for your actual check-out. The RA is required to inspect your room as part of the check-out process.

You will be able to keep your ID cards! If you are coming back next year, you will need your ID card. You WILL NOT be issued a new card during the move in process in the fall. Card replacement fees are $25.
