AMENDMENT TO THE RESIDENCE HOUSING POLICYTalladega College Home Page | Complete Exemption Form
To ensure that all Talladega College students receive a strong foundation and create a path of success, we believe that all students with fewer than 60 earned credit hours must live on campus. Residing on campus yields positive benefits such as higher GPA, higher retention, higher graduation (within 4 - 6 years), and likelihood to attend graduate or professional school (i.e., law school, medical school, etc.). Students enrolled or accepted to Talladega College who live beyond a 50 miles radius will be required to reside on campus until they have earned 60 or more credit hours with a 2.0 overall grade point average.
Sometimes, there are occasional extenuating circumstances, beyond a student's control, that may have an impact on his/her ability to live on campus.
Below you will find policy and procedure outlined for those who may qualify under this rule.
There may be compelling individual circumstances that would warrant residing off campus. Exceptions to this requirement must be submitted to the Director of Housing or his/her designee. Individuals seeking an exception must file a waiver form and submit to the Director of Housing or his/her designee. Individual seeking an exception must submit the appropriate document to the Director.
Exemptions may be granted with appropriate documentation under the following circumstances such as:
Exemption information must be received in the housing office no later than June 15.
The Director of Housing and Residence Life must receive written notification no later than June 15 with all supporting documentation. The Director will review the information submitted and mail the student a written response no later than July 1.
