How to Guide: New Resident Application

*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.

 

STEP 1: Complete our Online Housing 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 2: Submit either a copy of your medical insurance card or a signed Medical Waiver.

  • If you are submitting a copy of your insurance card, take a photo of the front and back of the insurance card with your smartphone. Please be sure to include the student's name and make sure the picture is clear.

Submit your document by email or regular mail:

Email: reslife@panola.edu

Mail: Residence Life
1109 W. Panola St.
Carthage, TX 75633

STEP 3: Register for classes for the upcoming full semester and provide the Residence Life Office with proof of registration  (a copy of your account statement).

  • Remember you must maintain a minimum of 12 hours to live on campus. Please contact the Student Services Center at 903-693-2077, if you have any questions regarding verification of registration.

STEP 4: Provide a receipt showing you have paid in full or have set up a payment plan.

  • Once you have finished steps one through three, 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. Once you have paid or made payment arrangements through FACTS, the business office will send you this receipt.
  • If you do not have this receipt when you come to move-in, your move-in may be delayed.
