Residence Life/Housing Contract Highlights:

Everyone should read and understand the Residence Life/Housing contract before signing it, as it is a legal and binding document.  Some important points to keep in mind are:

  • You are signing a one-semester only contract and you are obligated to fulfill the terms of this contract.
  • If you move off campus during the semester, whether it is voluntary or you are removed from Housing for discipline reasons but still remain a student at Navarro College, you will still be charged for Housing for the entire term of your contract.
  • Breaking the contract for any reason will cause your deposit to be forfeited and applied to your housing costs if there is a balance.  If there is not a balance or any outstanding fines your deposit will be refunded to you.
  • By signing the contract you are agreeing to the terms of the contract and the policies of the Residence Life/Housing Handbook.  Violations of our policies will result in disciplinary actions as determined by Navarro College officials.

These are just a few important points you need to be familiar with.  Please READ and make sure you understand ALL of the contract and Residence Life/Housing Handbook.
