Students should not sign an apartment lease without first receiving exemption approval. The student assumes the risk of being charged for on-campus housing and apartment rent if the exemption is denied. Failure to supply the required supporting documentation within twenty (20) calendar days from the date of this request will automatically result in a denial of exemption.

I have read the Freshman Residency Exemption Form and understand that I am NOT automatically exempt form SGSC's residency requirement.  I understand that written notice will be received whether my request has been approved or denied.  I also understand that if I have already signed a contract and am now trying to move out of on-campus housing, this form does not release me from any amount due for the contract cancellation process clarified in the termination section of my Residence Hall Contract.
