Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Any off-campus petition submitted via StarRez by the petition deadline are currently under review. If you applied for financial hardship or a medical accommodation and have not received an official notification regarding your petition status before your room selection time slot opens, you will need to participate in room selection.

Once petition decision letters are sent, any cadet not approved for off-campus will need to participate in room selection.
