Are there minimum academic requirements for admission to Grogan College?

Do Grogan College courses “count”?
Yes! The academic course(s) associated with your Learning Community will either meet requirements for your specific major or they will meet General Education requirements.

I can’t afford the 200.00 housing deposit. Does that mean I can’t live on campus?
Absolutely not. The Office of Housing and Residence Life offers a deposit waiver for those who qualify. You must email The Office of Housing and Residence Life directly at email@example.com to inquire if you qualify.
I have a roommate preference. What should I do?
You should complete the roommate preference on the Housing application AND email Grogan College directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will do everything possible to honor your roommate request. However, our residence hall is restricted to only students accepted into Grogan College; therefore, your preferred roommate must also be accepted into Grogan College. Roommates who are both accepted to Grogan College but in different communities will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
