Rules and Regulations

Learn more about the rules and regulations you should know about while living at Flagler College.

Contract Cancellation Policy

A large part of the educational experience at a residential college is life on campus. For this reason, all freshman must live on campus unless they have received prior approval from the Office of Admissions. Transfer students who have completed less than 24 semester hours of credit are also required to live on campus, unless otherwise approved by the Office of Admissions. Returning students must participate in housing week to secure housing for the upcoming academic year. For students who enroll for the fall semester, housing contracts are for the full academic year; thus, the student is responsible for the yearly room and board charges, as stated in the Flagler College Catalog. Students entering Flagler in January will contract for housing for the spring semester only. Students who will graduate in December, or students who will study away in the spring, should contact the Office of Residence Life regarding revision of the housing contract.

Signing of the Flagler College Contract for Student Housing and the submission of the required deposit serves as a binding agreement to fully pay for room and board for the associated academic year. Students wishing to discuss this policy further must submit an email to the Dean of Student Services at studentservices@flagler.edu
