Blinn College conducts criminal background checks on all housing residents prior to acceptance into campus housing and prior to each semester. Should, during the course of a semester, a resident student be charged with a criminal offense which would have precluded them from being eligible to move into housing, that student will not be eligible to remain in housing. The student may reapply for housing at a later date but will be subject to all housing requirements.
Students living on campus must enroll for a minimum of 12 semester hours and remain enrolled in 12 hours for the duration of the semester. A student who drops or is dropped below 12 semester hours will have 3 class days to complete the academic reinstatement process. If the appeal is unsuccessful the resident will have 48 hours to move out of housing. The move-out date determines if a room rent refund is appropriate. The balance of the resident’s meal account is refundable. The room deposit is nonrefundable.
No student with less than 1.5 cumulative grade point average (GPA) after any semester will be allowed to live in student housing. Contact the Housing Department for information about the appeal process for exceptions due to extreme circumstances.
