FYLOR Extenuating Request Form

To request a special exemption from the First Year Live-On Requirement (FYLOR), a student must indicate why they think the policy is applied incorrectly to their individual circumstances.  Students should not request exemptions because they disagree with the policy or because they would prefer to live somewhere else.

Your request will be reviewed by the First Year Live-On Exemption Committee.  This committee meets beginning in January (for Summer & Fall semesters) and in November (for Spring semester).  The committee meets as needed, but approximately every 4-6 weeks.  You will be notified of the committee’s decision at the email address you provide.

Students should be prepared to provide supporting documentation to the committee based upon the nature of the exemption request (e.g. medical reports, financial information, etc.)

Students who request an exemption to the First Year Live-On Requirement after signing and completing a housing contract should understand that even if the committee grants the  exemption request, the student will remain subject to the cancellation fees listed in the housing contract under the section on cancelling if still enrolled.
