A Contract Release Request is a formal written petition to obtain a release from the housing contract.
The Contract Release Request process is intended for students who experience significant changes in circumstances beyond their control which a) prevent them from fulfilling the terms of the contract and b) cannot be resolved within the residence hall system. Only appeals that are submitted with one calendar year of cancellation date will be heard. Please click on the button below to complete the Contract Release Request Form
Submitting a Contract Release Request form is NOT a guarantee of release from the contract or the cancellation fees and penalties. The request should be submitted to the Assistant Director, Housing Operations; Administrative Services, who would decide based solely on the written request and supporting documentation. Should the Assistant Director not grant the appeal, the Assistant Director will then forward the appeal to the Contract Cancellation Appeals Committee which will make the final decision. The committee's decision is final and is not subject to any further appeals at TJC. All appeals are determined by the student's personal statement and supporting documentation. No in-person appeals are allowed, nor is the student allowed to be present at time of hearing.
