Room and Board

Room

Fees and Deposits The student shall pay the full cost of housing, dining, and deposits upon the receipt of an invoice from the University. For current and resuming students, we are not currently charging a housing deposit. For entering first year and transfer students, your housing deposit is included in your overall admissions deposit; no additional deposit is required with this agreement.

Refund Policy Cancellations are governed by the terms as outlined in the Student Handbook. Failure of the student to occupy the reserved residence hall by the first day of classes of either semester without prior written notification to the University will result in forfeiture of the room without refund of the housing deposit. All refunds of housing and dining charges are governed by the Refund Policy as defined in the current Student Handbook.

Reflecting the Wilkes University Refund policy, students will be entitled to a full refund if they withdraw or are approved to cancel their housing contracts after the first week of classes. Students will receive a 75% refund in their second week of classes, 50% in their third week, and 25% refund of room and board charges at their fourth week. Students are responsible for the full room and board charges at the fifth week of classes and beyond. The Director of Residence Life or her designee can make exceptions refunding any unused portion of paid rental fees for students called into active military service or who withdrawal for reasons beyond their control.

Board

Dining Plans All resident students are required to participate in one of the Colonel Dining Plans below. The dining plan is for the sole and exclusive use of the student who contracts for the service. The student's official photo identification card is the only acceptable method used to gain access to the dining facilities. Meal Plan options are based on the food service provider.
• First year resident students (students who have not previously been enrolled full-time in college or have earned fewer than 24 credits) must choose the Colonel Gold or Colonel Gold Plus plans only.
• Sophomore & Junior resident students may choose between Colonel Gold, Gold Plus, Blue, or Blue Plus.
• Senior resident students (90+ credits) may choose among any Colonel plan or the Senior Value Plan.

Dining Dollars and Flex Dollars Dining Dollars may be redeemed at Rifkin Café (Grille Works and WhichWich), the POD at Stark, or any other dining service outlets on campus. Flex Dollars may be redeemed at participating vending outlets, including Barnes & Noble Bookstore, and on-campus dining facilities. Participating vendors may be found online. Additional Dining and Flex Dollars may be purchased through GET Funds at any time.

Dining Plan Changes & Cancellations Dining plan level changes to Fall semester contracts are not permitted after June 1. Dining plan changes for Spring semester are permitted only during the official dining plan change period of September 15 through October 31.
Dining plan selections are contracted for the full academic year, with the exceptions for change requests noted above. Canceling your housing assignment after June 1 for Fall, or after October 31 for Spring, will not cancel your dining plan contract for that semester. Unused Dining/Flex Dollars will be carried over from the Fall semester to the Spring semester, but will not be carried over to the next academic year. At the end of the Spring Semester all unused swipes/Dining/Flex dollars will be eliminated and are not refunded.

Fees and Deposits The student shall pay the full cost of housing, dining, and deposits upon the receipt of an invoice from the University. For current and resuming students, we are not currently charging a housing deposit. For entering first year and transfer students, your housing deposit is included in your overall admissions deposit; no additional deposit is required with this agreement.
