Please refer to the Office of Financial Aid at 810-989-5530 for questions.
3. Students who apply to live in college housing must be able to pass an authorization background check. Students will fill out an authorization background check form in this application.

This background check is to ensure the overall safety and security of the college housing community.
4. Housing is a substance-free living environment. Residents who live in housing agree to abstain from the use of alcohol and other drugs regardless of age. Drinking, smoking, or the use of alcohol and/or other drugs is not permitted in housing.
