The South Dakota Board of Regents (SDBOR) housing policy states that students must live and dine on campus for their first two years in college following high school graduation. We recognize living on campus and/or on-campus dining, for various reasons, may not be in the best interest of all students. We offer applications for live-on requirement exemptions, housing contract releases and meal plan requirement releases for exemption from SDBOR Policy and/or residence hall occupancy contracts.
Live-On Requirement Exemption Application
The live-on requirement exemption, if granted, releases students from the obligation to live on-campus. Students must meet all of the following criteria:
Housing Contract Release Application
Students who have signed a residence hall occupancy contract and wish to be released must fill out a housing contract release application. This application must be completed for all residence hall occupancy contracts, regardless if contract term dates have begun.
Live-On Exemption and Contract Release Categories
Students meeting one of the following categories may be considered for exemption from the live-on requirement or contract release:
