2020/2021 LICENSE FOR USE OF RESIDENCE HALL FACILITIES AND FOOD SERVICE

 

The Food Service Program consists of a 19 meal per week plan.  The cafeteria is open for 3 meals per day Monday through Friday and 2 meals per day on Saturday and Sunday.  The cost for the mandatory meal plan is $2,181 per semester.

The cost for residence hall rent is $945 per semester for a shared room in the Cougar Dorms or $1,143 per shared room in the Ash Street Dorms.  The College reserves the right to fill all vacancies. In addition, a $150 security deposit is required.  When a student leaves the residence hall, all or any part of the security deposit not due the College for damage to or loss of property of the residence hall and/or food service charges will be refunded.

EXCEPTION:  Athletes involved in fall or winter sports may be required to pay residence hall and/or food service fees during intercessions, breaks, and other periods of time beyond the check-in and check-out periods defined in this handbook.  Fees will be determined at a later date by the Vice President of Student Services.

**NOTE: A $150 security deposit must accompany the Residence Hall application to be placed

on the list for consideration of a residence hall room.**

It is each student’s responsibility to ensure fees are paid at the time of enrollment or by the due date specified for each semester. If the financial obligation is not met by the stated deadline, the student may be dropped from classes. Residence hall fees are considered due when the student checks into the residence hall at the beginning of each semester.

In an attempt to make each student’s experience at Taft College as enjoyable as possible, the College offers payment plan options for those students who cannot pay the entire balance of their residence hall fees when they move in. Participation in the payment plan option requires a $25 non-refundable administrative fee and a $250 1st down payment per semester.  A student may have the $250 down payment waived only if, prior to move in, they have their financial aid completed to the point in which the Financial Aid Department can determine aid eligibility covers the initial amount.
