All single, freshman and sophomore undergraduate students who are not commuting from the home of their parents or legal guardians must reside in University housing (residence halls) and all freshman are required to purchase an Unlimited Meal Plan for the full academic year. This policy covers all beginning students who are starting college in the same year as their date of graduation from high school. Students who have been out of high school for one year or more are exempt from this policy.
Students planning to live at home in Commerce, TX or within 50 miles (or less than a 1 hour drive) are required to complete a Commuter Authorization Request form and sign it in the presence of a Notary Public or Residential Living and Learning Office staff member and return it to the Residential Living and Learning Office. Students must notify the Residential Living and Learning Office of any change in name or address.
A Commuter Authorization Request will be honored if the student is living with the Parent or Legal Guardian within a 50 mile radius of the main campus or no more than one hour travel time from campus.
