At the time the contract is signed, the resident will deposit with NCC, the sum of $190.00, which includes a $15 non-refundable application fee, and $175 housing deposit from which NCC may withhold such amount(s) as are deemed necessary to:
A. Remedy the resident's default for non-payment of rent;

E. Subject to the foregoing, NCC will return the $175 housing deposit to the resident, less any deductions, within ninety (90) days of the date of termination of the tenancy and receipt of the resident’s mailing address and delivery instructions. In the event that all or part of the deposit is retained, a written statement setting forth the reasons for the retention will be sent to the resident. If the resident should decide to move from the apartment prior to the end of the contractual period for ANY reason other than documented health reasons or military involvement, the housing deposit may be forfeited pursuant to subsections 5 (A)-(D) above. If damage exceeds $175 the student will be responsible for any amount in excess thereof. Residence Hall charges will be forfeited if the student officially withdraws from NCC during the academic semester. Additionally, as discussed above, the housing deposit may also be forfeited if the student officially withdraws from NCC during the academic semester.
