Current and incoming students seeking to gain commuter status are strongly urged to request approval as soon as possible. Whether you are a current DC student or entering in the fall, you must meet one or more of the below criteria to be granted permission to live off-campus while attending DC.
In order to be approved for commuter status, students must meet at least one of the following criteria (see student handbook):
Incoming students will have commuter status verified when they sign up and attend a Freshman Orientation date. Current students must request commuter status by applying in the Dean of Students Office. The Dean of Students will review requests as they are received throughout the year.
Applications MUST be received prior to the beginning of the academic year to be considered for commuter status. Requests may be assessed a $50.00 fee if received once the academic year has started. Commuter Request Forms are available in the Office of Student Life (Hubbard 132) or you may download here.
Current students who have not been officially granted commuter status are cautioned not to make arrangements with outside housing providers as you may not receive commuter status. A mistake in this area may leave your financially liable to BOTH the college and an outside housing provider.
