Please carefully read the following Residency Requirements before completing this application.

Residency Requirements: Briar Cliff University believes that living on campus is a vital part of the college experience. The best college experience is one where the curriculum and the co-curriculum are seamlessly integrated. Given that the educational benefits of a residential education are many and well-documented, Briar Cliff University enforces the following residency policy. It is the policy of Briar Cliff University that all full-time undergraduate students live in campus housing and are enrolled in a meal plan until they have reached senior class standing (91 credit hours). Exceptions to this housing policy will include students living with their parents or legal guardians within commuting distance (40 miles) of campus or individuals establishing independent status. An independent student is one who: 1) is at least 23 years of age, 2) is married, 3) has children, 4) is a veteran, or 5) achieves independent status according to Federal financial aid guidelines.
Housing Agreement Housing agreements are for the entire academic year and cannot be broken once initiated by University without the consent of the Assistant Dean of Students/Director of Campus Life. Residential students are responsible for all of the terms of the housing agreement. The Assistant Dean of Students/Director of Campus Life reserves the right to grant individual exemptions to the residency policy.
