Concordia University of Seward, NE says students have to be 21 and have lived on campus for three years. However, there are other student moving off campus, 21 years of age, but have not lived on campus for three years. Concordia explains that if you violate this agreement, you pay for the entire semester, plus the month's lease on the apartment. Room is $3,750/semester and board is $5,100/year.
The apartment is $220/month plus food and gas on top of that. So for the 2019-2020 tuition is $42,340, that is room and board, plus classes, not including textbooks. School year is only 9 months, I want to save as much money as possible, but am afraid that school will enforce this policy to make money, regardless of whether or not I can afford it.
You have the policy, and you're reciting it to us. So what do you need us for? If you are 21 and have lived on campus for 3 years, then you can move off campus. If not, then I guess you'll be in violation and will be paying for the entire semester.
If you think there are people who are getting different treatment, then call the housing office and ask. Maybe they'll allow you the same exemption that those people are getting.
Be aware that this response does not create an attorney/client relationship. I live and work in Massachusetts and may or may not know the local laws where you live. I hope people find my responses not only helpful but somewhat entertaining as well. If you rely on this as legal advice, remember the old saying, "You get what you pay for."
