How-To Guide: New Resident Application

Step One: Complete the online application. Be as detailed as possible; the more we know about you, the easier it is for us to get you into the best possible living situation.


Step Two: Pay your $200 refundable deposit. Bring or mail checks to:
Office of Residence Life
1109 W. Panola St.
Carthage, TX 75633
OR Submit Credit Card payments to the Business Office by calling 903-693-2082 or visiting during normal business hours.


Step Three: Submit either a copy of your medical insurance card, or a signed medical waiver to:
Office of Residence Life
1109 W. Panola St.
Carthage, TX 75633
Fax #: 903-693-1177
Scan & E-mail: reslife@panola.edu OR take a photo of the front and back of the insurance card with your smart phone and text it to Krystn Davis at 281-748-3172.  Please be sure to include the students name.

Step Four: As of January 1, 2010 all incoming residents must provide proof of Meningitis vaccination to live on campus.  If you have submitted a copy to the Admissions office please notify Res Life and we can get a copy for our records.

Step Five: Register for classes for the upcoming full semester and provide the Residence Life Office with proof of registration--a copy of your account statement. Please remember you must be registered in and maintain a minimum of 12 hours to live on campus.  Please contact the Student Success Center at 903-693-2077 if you have any questions regarding verification of registration.

Step Six: Once you have finished steps one through four, your application for housing is complete and a room will be reserved for you. However, you cannot move in without a "Paid In Full Receipt" from the business office. If you pay (or make payment arrangements through FACTS), the business office will send you this receipt so that you can bring it with you to move-in day. If you do not have this receipt when you come to move-in, your move-in may be delayed.

*Residency is assigned on a first-come first-serve basis according to the date on which all four steps of the application process are completed. No one, including returning students, will be assigned a bed until the entire application process is completed.
