All first-year students (including transfer students in their first year of college) attending Chadron State College are required to live in the residence halls for a minimum of two semesters and through successful completion of 30 credit hours. "Successful completion" is defined as having achieved a passing grade in those thirty credit hours. Students that may be exempt from this requirement are:
Students seeking exemption must fill out an off-campus application form, available in the Housing & Residence Life office, and have verification of exempt status from the director of housing prior to the start of the semester. Students found in violation of this policy will be charged room and board and may face additional sanctions.
All students living in the residence halls are required to participate in the food service program by purchasing a meal plan.
Meals are served Monday through Sunday in the Student Center cafeteria or the Eagle Grille. Payment options for room and board may be arranged through the Business Office. Specific policies pertaining to Chadron State College residence halls are included in the CSC Student Handbook and the Residence Life Handbook, which can both be found here and here. The Student Handbook, along with additional information and applications, may be obtained by contacting the Housing Office.
