    By signing this Housing Agreement, the person whose signature appears below agrees to commit to room and board charges for the entire 2022-22 academic year. An individual may be released from the Housing Agreement, without penalty, if the student: does not register for full-time coursework at Lasell; graduates; is involved in a full-time internship or clinical placement; is academically suspended or dismissed; or is suspended or dismissed through the Graduate Conduct System (see below) prior to the start of a semester. Students who wish to be released from their Housing Agreement for any of these acceptable reasons must notify the Office of Residential Life and the Vice President of Graduate and Professional Studies in writing by August 15 (for the fall semester) or December 15 (for the spring semester); students who fail to do so will be liable for a $1000 penalty charge.

    For reasons other than those stated above, students may petition in writing to be released from their Housing Agreement prior to the end of the Add/Drop period. Consideration will be given to students who can document a change in their physical, financial or personal situations that is beyond their control. Students who walk-away from their Housing Agreement are liable for a penalty charge not to exceed 25% of the total room and board cost for which they are responsible. Any student who changes their status from resident to commuter after the Add/Drop period will be responsible for 100% of the room and board charges for the semester.

    Graduate Conduct System:
     The graduate conduct system will follow the same guidelines, structure, and protocol of the Undergraduate Conduct System. However, appeals will be addressed to the Vice President of Graduate and Professional Studies.
