Residential Requirements For On-Campus Students

While graduate-level students of Southern Seminary are not required to live on-campus, all Boyce College students studying on-campus in Louisville are required to reside on campus in designated housing with three exceptions:

  •      Students who are married
  •      Students who are 22 years old as of the first day of classes
  •      Students who are both part-time* and upperclassmen** for the entire semester

Students desiring to move off campus but not meeting one of the above requirements must submit a Residential Exemption Request Form every semester.  Please note that students who plan to live with their parent(s) or legal guardian(s) must still complete a Residential Exemption Request Form every semester by July 1 (for fall semester) and by December 1 (for spring semester).  If denied, the student must live in the on-campus residence halls.

Students approved to live off-campus based on part-time student status must remain part-time for the entire semester for which they are approved.  Students who violate the residential requirement will face disciplinary action (reprimand, probation, or withdrawal), pay a monetary fine, and be required to move on-campus or forfeit their student status.

*Part time status is defined as less than 12 credit hours enrolled.

**Upperclassman is defined as 63 completed credit hours towards degree by the first day of classes.

That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
