Refunds on Residence Hall Charges
If a student properly checks out of the residence hall, in good standing, at the end of the academic quarter, or graduates, the $50 deposit may be refunded within 45 days of the student's departure by the campus Business Office. An improper checkout from the residence hall may result in an additional fee not covered by the $50 deposit.
There is no refund on quarterly room charges or room deposits for students who are expelled, dismissed, or move out voluntarily during the quarter (see the Student Housing section).
Information regarding the timetable for refunds is available in the Business Office of each campus. Refunds are proccessed using the Baker OneCard system. This card is issued to all new and returning students and must be activated by the student to receive refunds by choosing one of the three methods available: Baker One account, ACH to existing personal bank account, or by paper check. Information regarding the Baker OneCard can be obtained in your campus Business Office or by visiting www.BakerOneCard.com.
