Learning Communities

  • How to Apply

    Do not delay! Learning Communities are limited in size.


    Learning Community assignments are made on a first come, first-serve basis. Space is limited.

    The priority application deadline to be considered for a Learning Community was May 20th, 2015. We do have a limited number of spaces still available, so please apply and inquire with the Director. Applications received after this date will be reviewed on a case by case basis and some applicants may be placed in a Learning Community while others may be placed on a wait list.

    Applying does not mean that you will be guaranteed a space in the community. All students will be made aware of their Learning Community placement by April 10, 2015, unless you apply at a later date. Students placed in a Learning Community are strongly encouraged to attend a Dragon Registration Day in April, however this is not required.

    Learning Community Applications will be considered of a higher preference than your building preferences submitted in the Housing preferences section on the Housing Contract.

    The building location of the community historically stays the same, however due to renovations and demand in popularity the communities may change location. Students will be notified of the official building location when they are informed of their Learning Community acceptance after April 10th.

    *Please note that Learning Community participation is an academic year commitment. A $150 fee will be applied to your student account each semester. This fee will provide you with opportunities to attend events in the residence hall, on campus and within the community. The fee will cover admission to various venues if field trips or site visits are offered, cover the cost of food at various events, and provide you complete access to a Dragon Mentor. Please note that each community differs in programs offered and opportunities vary from semester to semester. The fall fee will not be refunded if you choose to change your major within the first semester or if you move off the Learning Community floor to accommodate a new roommate request. If you change you major, it is the student’s responsibility to inform your Dragon Mentor to avoid being charged the spring fee.
