Students may petition to be released from a completed housing contract due to unforeseen changes in financial status or a medical or psychological accommodation that is not able to be supported on campus. All appropriate documentation must be provided with the form. No exceptions will be made for forms that have been turned in with incomplete information. Requests are reviewed by a committee and decisions are rendered within 10 business days. To request the paperwork for a contract release, please contact the Office of Residence Life at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that cancellation fees may apply.
When a check-out date has been set, the student is required to follow the check-out procedures outlined in the Student Handbook. The student is responsible for any and all room condition and check out charges (if applicable) which will be charged to the student’s Lake Forest College student account.
