AMENDMENT TO THE RESIDENCE HOUSING POLICY

Talladega 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.

Exceptions:

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:

  • The student is experiencing medical conditions which require special attention or is the caregiver of someone experiencing medical conditions which require special attention.
  • Students with children, married students, and students involved in domestic partnership.
  • Demonstrated financial hardship as confirmed by Talladega College Office of Financial Aid.
  • Nontraditional students age 24 and over by August 1, with proof of age.
  • The student has full-time employment off campus and employment is verified.

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.

The Director will submit all information to the committee. Students will receive a response no later than July 25. All decisions of the Housing Appeals Committee are final.
  • Students enrolled after registration deadline and submit request to live off campus will be reviewed case by case in accordance to policy.
