Two Year Residency Requirement

The College believes a community living component during a student's first and second year of school supports the College's mission to provide students intellectual and moral preparation for responsible living and meaningful work. As a result, The College of St. Scholastica has instituted a Two Year Residency Requirement. All first and second year students are required to live on campus. and must complete a housing contract.

If a new first-year student would like to submit a request for exemption to this policy, they must complete the new student commuter request form. Please note, the College's residency requirement does not apply to new incoming transfer students. If you have questions regarding your transfer status, please contact the Office of Residential Life and Housing at reslife@css.edu or visit the New Transfer Student Housing website.
