Contract Cancellation Information

Students choosing to cancel their contract will need to provide a 30-day notice for cancellation via MyRed (instructions below)*.

Students will be charged for 30 days after the completion date of the online cancellation process or the date they have turned in their room and mailbox keys (whichever is later). Cancellations received on and after July 15 will accrue daily charges since we now require a 30-day cancel notice.

* Any nonrefundable contract process fee submitted (or deferred to their student account) with a contract won’t be refunded if a student cancels their contract. If a student signed the deferment page of the contract they’re still be responsible for paying the $100 nonrefundable contract processing fee after contract cancellation.
