ROOM AND BOARD

Angelina College has 112 student spaces available in the college residence hall. These spaces may be reserved on a “first come, first served” basis after athletic scholarship recipients are housed and returning resident students have exercised their option to renew a reservation for the ensuing semester or term.

Applications for room reservations must be made on the form provided for this purpose. The form may be obtained from the Business Office. Room reservation applications must be accompanied by a $100.00 deposit which will be retained by the college as a property deposit after successful applicants have moved into the residence hall. The deposit will be used as a protection against damage to the residence hall and furniture and fixtures. Reservations confirmed but not used or not cancelled by the required date will result in forfeit of the deposit.

Reservation deposits will be refunded only upon written request to the Business Office.

During the fall semester only, once a room reservation has been confirmed, a non-refundable advance payment of $200.00 must be paid. The advance payment will be applied toward the fall semester residence hall fee. Failure to make the advance payment will result in cancellation of the reservation and forfeiture of the deposit.

Notification of move in dates will be made when a room reservation is confirmed.

Students who have not checked in with the residence hall supervisor prior to the first class day of each semester may have their reservation cancelled.

Students must arrange to pay all remaining room and board fees before the time of dorm check-in. This includes students receiving financial aid which is insufficient to cover room, board and fees.

Scholarship athletes should obtain meal plan information available at the Athletics office.

Non-scholarship dorm residents will be required to purchase a four-day meal plan* at a cost of $1,000.00. Unused meals expire at the end of each semester. The meals may be used any time the snack bar is open and will include grill items as well as the daily buffet.

Additional meals may be purchased through the business office and may be carried forward to future semesters.

*These rates include applicable sales taxes, are subject to change if economic conditions so require, and include meals commencing on the first class day and ending on the last class day of a semester or term (class days are listed in the official College Calendar).

No meal plan is offered during summer terms, although students may purchase individual meal tickets in the Business Office. Additionally, the room rent* for the Fall/Spring semesters is $1,100.00 per semester. Residents will pay $1,800.00 per Fall/Spring semester for room and board. The room rent* for Summer I/II semesters is $550.00.

All student residents will be required to sign a contract with Angelina College (parent must sign for individuals under 18 years of age). This contract will provide that the resident student will comply with all college and Residence Hall Council rules and regulations. Residence hall policies will be strictly enforced.

Residence hall policies require that residents be enrolled at least 12 credit hours during the fall/spring terms and three hours in the summer terms. Exceptions must be approved by the Dean of Students. Additionally, students on financial aid suspension will be ineligible to reside in the dorm.

The residence hall rooms are furnished with study desks, chairs, beds, chests, and closets. Occupants must furnish their own personal items such as sheets, pillows, pillow cases, blankets, bedspreads, towels, wash cloths, curtains, rugs, brooms, mops, etc. Television cable is furnished for each room by the college. Telephone outlets are available in each room, but it is the student’s responsibility to have service activated.

Students who officially withdraw from the college, who are dismissed at the convenience of the college on or after the first class day, or who are expelled from the residence hall for violation of policies, will not receive a refund of room rent. Students who are forced to withdraw due to illness or injury, such withdrawal being substantiated by a physician’s written and signed statement, will receive a refund of the unearned room rent on a pro rata basis. In the event of the substantiated death of a student, the unearned room rent and the reservation deposit will be refunded to the estate of the student. In the case of refunds due to students who receive grants and/or scholarships, the refunds will be paid to the grants and/or scholarship accounts.

Students who officially withdraw from the college, who are dismissed at the convenience of the college, or who are expelled from the residence hall, will receive refunds of board costs on a pro rata basis. Such refunds resulting from the substantiated death of a student will be paid to the student’s estate. In the case of refunds due to students who receive grants and/or scholarships, the refunds will be paid to the grants and/or scholarship accounts. No refunds will be made until the student turns in a completed dorm check-out sheet to the Business Office.

The college cafeteria and snack bar are open to all students. Students not residing on campus may purchase meal tickets or pay cash. Angelina College provides room and board, and all other services, without discrimination on the basis of sex, age, race, color, creed, religion, national origin or physical disability.
