Future Residents

Because the Harriet L. Wilkes Honors College regards the residential education experience as a central component of its student development mission, all first year admitted students at the Wilkes Honors College are required to live on-campus and purchase a meal plan for their first and second year unless they meet one or more of the following criteria.

  • 24 years of age or older
  • Married
  • Parents of dependent children
  • US military veterans, honorably discharged
  • Transfer students entering the Wilkes Honors College with a fully completed associate of arts degree or who have completed two years of college previously, which they pursued after high school.
  • Transfer students who have completed one year of college are required to live on campus for one year. Spring transfer students who have only completed one semester of college are required to live on campus for three semesters.

Students who wish to be exempt should apply for an exemption by July 1 for fall and December 1 for spring. Students with a medical condition, as certified by a licensed physician, making it impossible for them to live on campus, should provide documentation to the Housing Appeals Committee Requests for exemption will be heard by the Housing appeals committee. All decisions of the committee shall be considered final. Once the contract is signed and the academic year has begun, an exemption will not be granted, nor will the contract be cancelled for this purpose.
