Eviction of Non-Enrolled Students

POLICY REGARDING STUDENTS RESIDING IN CAMPUS HOUSING WITHOUT AN ACTIVE ENROLLMENT

Mercer University policy stipulates that individuals not registered in courses are ineligible to reside on campus or use the University's facilities or services. Students who are not registered for any classes will be actively evicted from housing.

However, Mercer recognizes the need to offer a grace period to non-enrolled students who are actively seeking to address and correct reasonable financial or registration issues during the official add/drop period. Therefore, the following policy will apply:

1. The Office of the Bursar will notify the Office of Residence Life one day after add/drop of any non-enrolled student who has accrued charges for room and board but are not registered for courses during that term.

2. Residence Life will then contact each of these students and notify them (in person or by e-mail notification) that they have 48 hours to correct their registration and/or financial obligations.

3. If the situation is not resolved at the end of the specified 48 hour period, the individual will be required to immediately vacate their housing premises. Verification of resolution must be in writing from the office in question, or by direct phone call from that office, to the Office of Residence Life.
