Off-Campus Housing Disclaimer
*NOTE* - Please read the following disclaimer from West Texas A&M University
Due to the fact that West Texas A&M University believes that living on campus plays a significant role in the success of students, the University has developed housing and meal plan requirements.
Code of Student Life
All students are required to meet housing and meal plan requirements. Students not meeting these requirements will be assessed housing and/or meal plan charges unless they have been approved for an exemption. Exemptions are valid for one academic year, so long as the requested exemption is still applicable to the student. Exemptions should be documented and approved through the Office of Residential Living prior to the beginning of each semester.
All full-time students (enrolled in 12 or more credit hours) under the age of 21 with fewer than *60 credit hours (post-high school) prior to the start of the first day of class of the semester of initial enrollment/re-enrollment (for each academic year) are required to reside in University-owned housing, unless they qualify for an exemption. This rule applies to new, transfer, relocating, and re-enrolling students.
*Please Note: The 60 credit hours must be post-high school credits. College credit hours earned by a student while attending high school (Dual Credit courses, Advanced Placement, CLEP, etc.) which advances a student academically to a higher class year, will not be considered toward housing or meal plan exemption eligibility.
Students subject to the housing requirement who fail to comply with this condition of registration may have their registration denied or canceled and a hold placed on their student account, as well as housing charges posted to their student account.
Students who meet any of the following conditions are not required to live in University-owned housing:
- Student is enrolled part-time (less than 12 hours) for each long semester (fall/spring) – subject to random validation.
- Student is enrolled only in online classes – subject to random validation.
