Commuter Applicants

Commuter Applicants

​Commuter students at Grove City College are full-time students who live with their parents, legal guardians or spouses, normally within a 40-mile radius of campus. Permission from the College must be granted for students desiring to live with relatives other than parents or legal guardians, but are limited to grandparents or aunts and uncles. Veterans and those returning to college from the working world may qualify for approved commuter status if there is a significant age difference between them and students in their class living on campus. Normally, students who would be 25 years of age during their senior year would be considered in this category. Certain students, for medically documented reasons, may be considered for commuter status. In addition, students attending beyond their fourth year, or who have lived on campus for more than eight semesters including time spent at other institutions, are required to live off campus in the community of Grove City. All off-campus housing for full-time students must be authorized by the College. The College does not provide housing for part-time, post-baccalaureate, married or special status students.
