  • To prepare for checking out of your room, the portion of the room for which you are responsible must be cleared and clean.

  • Floors are to be swept and moped.
  • Bag trash and take it outside to the dumpster
  • Clean and dust all surfaces (shelves, mirrors, desktops, dresser top, etc.
  • Charges will be applied to the account if college staff are required to replace a bed – or other furniture – that was moved out by the student (Furniture should be placed back in its original arrangement).

Abandoned property and improper check-out: Any student property that is left behind beyond the residency contract dates is subject to being considered abandoned by the student. In cases where students abandon property at the end of the semester (excluding the transition period between Fall to Spring semester), the College may, at its discretion dispose of the property pursuant to the Disposition of Personal Property Landlord and Tenant Act as outlined in SC Code State Statute 27-40-730.

The college will make a reasonably good faith effort to reach out to the student, should property (excluding trash) be left behind beyond the student’s residency to make arrangements for the student to secure any property left behind. The college cannot, under any circumstances provide storage space or assurance of protection for the property. Should a student abandon property in the residence halls, a notice will be sent to the student and the student will be responsible for any care or removal costs of their property. If a student fails to respond to a notice about abandoned property, the college reserves the right to dispose of personal property and may charge the student for any costs associated with abandoned property disposal.
