Notes on Required Charges

The Dormitory Damage Deposit is required to offset any charges incurred for damage to a student’s room, furnishings, or pro-rated shares of extraordinary damage to common facilities in the dormitories. Families may be charged if a student’s room is left dirty or in a state of disarray. Parents are responsible for any damage beyond the deposit. The damage deposit may also be debited if a student overdraws his/her sundries account. If there is no damage or balance due, the damage deposit will be refunded to the person responsible for billing by late September.

Sundries Account is used to cover sundries and incidentals. This account can be supplemented by parents at any time. All unused amounts, except those covered by scholarship, will be returned to the person responsible for billing by late September.
