Parents/supporters are not required to return to campus to help with the move to fall housing assignments. Learning Assistants will be helping students with the move.

The Quarter Plus program ends on September 12, and participants will remain in their Fall Housing assigned room (that they moved into on September 8). They will be charged the Quarter Plus program Housing rate for the 30 nights of August 15 – September 13 and begin being charged the Fall Housing rate starting the night of September 14.
