Residency Requirement Exemption Form


All full-time first year students and second year students are required to live on campus through the spring semester of their second academic year of enrollment. Students may use this form to request an exemption to Miami University's Two Year Residency policy


Students who (1) are over 21 years of age by the first day of class; (2) reside with their parents, legal guardians, spouses or dependent children (affidavit required); or (3) have matriculated full-time for at least two years at another institution of higher education or a regional campus (credits must be earned after graduating high school) are exempt from this requirement.

Students seeking an exemption to this requirement must submit the Residency Requirement Exemption Application to the Campus Services Center prior to the beginning of the semester for which the exemption is sought. Please do not sign a housing contract if you plan to apply for an exemption. You will not be eligible to file an exemption if you have a signed contract on file for the term of which you wish to be exempt. Fraternity exemptions are coordinated through the Cliff Alexander Office of Fraternity & Sorority Life and Leadership.
