Contract Fees 

Housing Contract fees for 2024-2025 consist of a $50 non-refundable application fee and a $140 Spring Prepayment that will reduce your Spring Housing charges by $140. The Spring Prepayment is refundable on cancellations through May 1st, 2024. Online payment of the application fee is required in the Housing Contract, unless you qualify for a deferral. The full contract terms and conditions may be found on our Policy & Forms page. 

Application Fee Deferrals

Students who are Pell eligible or a scholarship athlete may choose to defer their Housing Contract fees to their PSU student account. This does not waive the fees but instead applies the Contract fees to the student account to be paid at a later time. Students who qualify for a deferral may choose this option when completing the Contract.
