Saint Benedict's Policies

Returning Students

All returning Saint Benedict's students are required to make an advance payment prior to pre-registration for the fall semester. All returning students who require college housing must make an additional pre-payment for housing. The advance payment is non-refundable after the payment deadline.

Room Rentals

Beginning with the class that enrolls at CSB in the fall of 2010, all students will be required to live on campus. Housing information forms are sent to all Saint Benedict's students who are offered admission. For first-year students residence hall accommodations are assigned using their housing questionnaire and assignments are sent out to incoming students in mid-July. For returning upperclass students, housing arrangements are determined through participation in the room selection process. Room selection takes place during the spring semester for the next academic year.

Room rentals are on an academic year basis (September through May). The College of Saint Benedict expects its students to vacate their residences during official college breaks. Students who need to remain in their campus housing during the break periods must make special arrangements with the Residential Life Office.

A copy of the CSB Campus Housing Agreement and specific rental information can be found on the CSB Residential Life website at www.csbsju.edu/csbreslife or can be obtained from the Residential Life Office. 

Board Contracts

All Saint Benedict's students living in residence halls or other rooms without cooking facilities are assigned a board contract. The board contract is intended to be a minimum charge only; therefore additional meal purchases may be necessary. The board contract is non-transferable. 

Deferred Payments

Various payment options are available at Saint Benedict's that will allow either prepayment stabilization of the tuition cost or for installment payments during the school year. Additional information is available through the Student Accounts Office.
