The Village @ Rose State Frequently Asked Questions

 

  • Rose State College has dorms?
    • No, Rose State College offers an on-campus living experience in fully furnished apartments that include a full kitchen, queen sized beds, and each residents has their own bedroom. Don’t call them dorms- we prefer Student Housing or on-campus apartments.
  • Who can live at The Village @ Rose State?
    • Any currently enrolled Rose State College student may live at The Village. We require residents to be enrolled in at least 6 credit hours, but preference will be given to full-time students enrolled in 12 or more credit hours, as defined by Federal Financial Aid.
  • How do I apply?
    • We will begin accepting applications for new residents on Monday, April 3rd at 8am. The Housing Application will be available on the Housing website under “Forms” and labeled Housing Application 2017-2018. You must print the application, fill it out, and submit it in-person, via fax, email, or mail to the Residence Life office. There is a $25 non-refundable application fee that must also be submitted to the RSC Cashiers office before your application is reviewed.
  • What do I do after I apply?
    • Please make sure you are enrolled for the semester you are wishing to move in. If you are wanting to move in for Summer 2017, please make sure you are enrolled in at least 3 credit hours. If you are moving in for Fall 2017, please make sure you are enrolled in at 6 credit hours, but taking into account that students enrolled full-time have preference for living on-campus. After your application is reviewed and approved, you will receive an email at the email address you provided on your application letting you know you are approved and the next steps you need to take. Please make sure to provide our office with a valid email address and also check your email regularly. Please allow up to 3 weeks for your application to be approved. If it has been longer than 3 weeks, please contact us at (405) 733-7490 or email at residencelife@rose.edu to check the status of your application.
  • When is my space secured?
    • Your space is secure at The Village @ Rose State after you successfully apply for Housing and pay your $25 application fee to the Cashiers office, enroll for the upcoming semester, submit your Student Housing Contract, and pay your $200 deposit to the Cashiers office. Your space is not secure until all of the steps are followed, in that order, and your $200 is on-file. Please do not pay your deposit until you have been contacted by Residence Life to do so. Housing availability is on a first come, first serve basis.
  • What if I change my mind and I don’t want to live on-campus?
    • Plans change and we understand that. If you need to cancel your Student Housing Contract for the Fall 2017 semester, please do so in writing to residencelife@rose.edu and include your full name, RSC student ID number, permanent mailing address, and reason for cancelling. All cancellations for the Fall 2017 semester must be received by Friday, July 28th, 2017 at 5:00 PM in order for the $200 deposit to be refunded. Any cancellations made after that date will forfeit the $200 deposit.
  • Can I pick my roommate?
    • Yes, if you and someone you know want to live together, there is an option to indicate that on your Student Housing Application. All parties must indicate the preference of living together. Accommodations for roommates will be made on a first come, first serve basis. Make sure to submit your applications early!
  • What if I don’t have a roommate in mind?
    • There is space on your Housing Application to answer questions about yourself and we will go off that to place you with someone.
  • Will my Financial Aid pay for my Housing?
    • Financial Aid is defined as any aid disbursed by the Financial Aid Office to include but not limited to: all student loans; all grants; all scholarships; Pell Grants; and all other state, local, and federal funds disbursed to the student’s account from either the Financial Aid Office or the Cashiers office. All Residents/Lessees must pay the housing charges in full or have satisfactory payment arrangements approved before the Resident/Lessee can move into The Village @ Rose State. The charges can be paid in full by academic year, by semester, or paid in installments via an installment payment plan. If a Resident/Lessee is receiving assistance through the Financial Aid Office, the entire semester’s housing charges will be paid from any Financial Assistance the Resident/Lessee is awarded before the Resident/Lessee will be eligible to receive any refund. Tuition and fees will be paid first with any Financial Aid.
