  • Marriage or domestic partnership
  • Medical hardship

Submitting a Cancellation Request

If a student would like to request to move out of campus housing for the Fall and Spring semester, they would put in a cancellation request via the Fall 2018 - Spring 2019 Housing Application. 

If a student would like to request to move out of campus housing for the Spring 2019 semester only, they would put in a cancellation request via the Spring 2019 Housing Application. 

The following are steps for submitting a cancellation request:

  1. Log onto MyHousing via Banner Self-Service www.rowan.edu/selfservice
  2. Select the application to cancel (Fall2018/Spring 2019 or Spring 2019)
  3. Select from the dropdown menu "cancel/withdraw" this application and click submit.
  4. Student will then read over the cancellation contract/information.
  5. At the bottom of the screen you may select “No, do not cancel this application” or “Yes, cancel this application” from the drop down.  
    • If “Yes, cancel this application” is selected you must select a reason from the 2nd drop down menu.  
    • Add additional notes regarding reasons for cancellation.  
    • Click submit and a confirmation will appear that the cancellation request has gone through.​

 

Supporting Documentation

After submitting their cancellation request, the student will be asked by the RLUH office to provide documentation for consideration regarding their cancellation request. Failure to provide this documentation within two weeks of the request for documentation will result in the denial of the cancellation request. 

The supporting documentation that we will ask for depends on the circumstances in which a student is requesting cancellation. For example, if a student is citing financial hardship, the RLUH office may ask for documentation that shows student loan information, loan approval/denial letters, etc. 


 

Approval/Denial

 If a student's cancellation request is approved, the RLUH office will notify that student via their Rowan email address with further instructions on moving out of campus housing. 

If a student's cancellation request is denied, the RLUH office will notify the student via their Rowan email address and offer the opportunity for the submission of more supporting documents. Typically, the RLUH office will also offer room change opportunities in conjunction with a denial.
