    Room Refund Policy

    Policy Statement

    This policy sets forth core principles and standards with respect to room refunds for students living on campus at Adelphi University.

    Reason for Policy

    This policy serves to clearly state the University’s room refund policy for students living on campus. The policy describes nonrefundable deposits, and when and how room refunds will be granted.

    Who Is Governed by this Policy

    Resident Students


    Room and board charges will be refunded in full prior to occupancy.

    Upon occupancy, the $25 residence activity fee is no longer refundable.

    A student may be released from this Residence Hall Agreement only if approved by a special committee that shall review each request individually and with reference to prevailing University policy for granting such waivers.

    Should a resident withdraw from the University, that student must notify the Office of Residential Life and Housing by completing the Early Release Request Form, and then follow appropriate procedures by checking out with a residential life staff member.

    Students who are suspended, expelled or dismissed from the University housing pursuant to disciplinary action are not entitled to a refund for tuition, fees or room charges for the semester in which the sanction is imposed. Meal plan refunds are made in accordance with the schedule in effect at the time of the dismissal.

    Students who submit a Residence Hall Agreement after the first day of the semester or change rooms after the first day of the semester should contact the Office of Residential Life and Housing to discuss their financial responsibility to the University.

    All refunds of credit balances must be requested from the Office of Student Financial Services.


    This policy does not have definitions associated with it at this time. Upon periodic policy review, this area will be evaluated to determine if additional information is needed to supplement this policy.
