Remember, monthly installments are due on the 1st of each month. Partial payments are not accepted and will be returned to the resident. Late fees will begin to accrue on any balance not paid by the 5th. Late fees are 1% of your monthly rent not to exceed 5%. You will incur late fees starting on the 6th of each month. If payment is not received by the 10th of the month, the student will be subject to the eviction process. Additionally fees are applied to the account for the costs associated with eviction and court fees.
Leases are calculated for the time the resident occupies the unit, August 19th to July 31st. The total amount due is then divided into 12 equal installments to assist in having more manageable payments. For example, if your annual rate is $9,600 (August 19th to July 31st), then we divide the total into 12 equal installments of $800 due on the first of each month. There is also the option of paying the full annual amount of $9,600 in August. There is also the option to make two installments of $4,800 (one August 1st and again January 1st).
Residents have 3 payment options available to them:
Option 1 (Preferred Option): ACH Payment Processing via your Portal Account (No Convenience Fee)

In order for the resident to be relinquished from their leasing obligations, they resident will need to utilize the Resident Replacement process. The resident will still be financially liable for the lease until the replacement process is complete. To begin the process, the resident will be required to:
The replacement resident will be required to fill out an application and pay the $25 dollar application fee in the form of a check or money order.
When the resident has completely moved out of the apartment, they must return apartment key, mailbox key, parking access card and hangtag (if applicable) to the Leasing Office. DO NOT give the keys directly to the replacement resident. This is to prevent them from moving in without completing the lease. If the replacement resident moves into the space without completing the application and signing the lease, the lease will still be in your student’s name and your student will be liable for the space and all monies owed until the end of the lease term. The replacement cannot move until 7 days after the previous resident has have moved out to provide adequate time to the staff to prepare the room for the new resident. For more information or help navigating through the Replacement Resident process, please contact Patricia Sidbury firstname.lastname@example.org.
