Congratulations! We are pleased that you will be joining the UC family.
In order to secure your enrollment and housing (if applicable), students are charged a deposit which is applied to your account during the first semester. Please review the policy outlined below:
After an offer of admission to the University of Charleston is made, the student must remit a $100 enrollment deposit. Students must remit the deposit upon acceptance of a financial aid package or when pre-registering for classes, unless special arrangements have been made with the Vice President for Enrollment. This deposit will be credited to the first semester's tuition.
If the applicant requests campus housing, (freshmen and sophomores must live in the residence halls if their permanent address is outside a 60-mile radius), a $100 housing security deposit must also be remitted by the deposit deadline. This is refundable at the conclusion of campus residency providing the student has no unpaid University charges and no damage to rooms or common areas has occurred.
Both deposits are refundable upon written request, until May 1 for fall semester enrollment. After this date, no deposits are refunded. For spring applicants, no deposit refunds will be given, but the deposits may be deferred for use in the following fall semester if the University receives a request from the student, in writing, before the spring semester begins.
