New Students and Families

Welcome to Vaughn College!

Congratulations on your decision to attend Vaughn College.  We want to do all we can to make your entire college experience a successful one. The staff of the Academic Success Center (ASC) is here to help achieve this goal. We offer a number of resources to ensure the success of all our students and graduates. The ASC is just one of the College’s valuable assets that help students reach their goals, both professionally and personally.

Residence Hall Move-In and Orientation Information

New students are invited to move-in two days prior to the start of their educational program. The specific times and process are sent to the student along with their housing assignment.

Any questions related to housing and the residence hall should be directed to Becky Falto, Director of Residence Life, .

As students enroll, they will receive credentials for our New Student Orientation Course. It is our expectation that you spend time at your own pace completing the asynchronous modules to familiarize yourself with Vaughn. Prior to each semester, there will be an Orientation experience where you are expected to participate at a designated time. Orientation is designed to acclimate you to your new educational institution and to promote your success.

To learn more about the Orientation experience, visit here. Sessions tend to fill up quickly, we strongly recommend that you register early.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Are students guaranteed housing?

No. The residence hall’s capacity is approximately 185 residential students. Therefore, housing is available on first-come, first-served basis, provided that the student has been admitted to Vaughn College, has submitted a complete student housing application and has paid the $250 housing deposit. The student will also need to provide a photocopy of a health insurance card on move-in day, as health insurance is required for all resident students.

Q: What is the housing deposit and what is it for?

Each student is required to submit a $250 housing deposit when completing a housing application. The $250 fee will be kept on file to be used towards any excess damages left in your room upon your move-out. If you cancel housing in writing prior to July 1, for the fall semester, or January 1, for the spring semester, the $250 housing deposit will be refunded. After these dates, the deposit is not refunded for housing cancellations.

Q: What is the cost for a room in the Residence Hall?

Please see the Residence Hall Rates and Fees section of the Vaughn College Semester Tuition and Fees page.

Q: How can I change my application?

Students who need to change the information provided on their online housing application can resubmit the same application form they filled out, as posted on the main page of our site. If you have any questions, contact .

Q: When can I move into the residence hall?

In the fall, the residence hall generally opens during the weekend prior to the beginning of classes. However, there are specific move-in dates for new residents versus returning residents, as well as for international students. In the spring and summer semesters, move-in is generally 24 hours before the start of classes. Each academic year’s dates and move-in procedures may vary, so please refer to your Vaughn email for notices from the Office of Residence Life and Housing regarding your move-in.
