Canceling a Residency Due to an Emergency/Petition Policy

Return to: Academic Residencies and Requirements  

If you are canceling your residency due to an emergency, you may submit a Residency Petition form and supporting documents within 14 days after the event to request a possible refund of residency registration fees. Submitting a petition does not mean that your registration will be canceled. Students will be asked to provide documentation supporting the student’s need to cancel the registration after the deadline. Documentation needs to provide evidence that the reason for late cancellation was unavoidable and unforeseeable.

Petitions and supporting documentation must be submitted to your academic advisor no later than 14 calendar days after the residency ends. There are no exceptions to this policy. If you do not cancel before the cancellation date and do not have an approved petition through the above petition process, you will be billed and expected to pay the residency fee, whether or not you attend(ed).

Please also see the Residencies Website and contact your academic advisor for additional details about canceling your residency due to an emergency.
