FAQs

Guarantor

After the first year, are parents required to be co-signers (guarantors) on students’ housing contracts?
No, the guarantor’s signature is not required on the renewal housing contract. Each first-time resident is required to have a guaranty agreement on file. That guaranty agreement remains on file for the duration of the student’s time within Islander Housing.  All guaranty agreements authorize the student to execute a renewal housing contract since they are residents occupying the space. If a guarantor no longer wishes to be tied to that student’s agreement, they should email IslanderHousing@americancampus.com with a replacement guarantor. The email should include the replacement guarantor’s and the student’s name, email address, & telephone number.

Can I be my own guarantor?
A resident can act as their own guarantor if they can show documentation as outlined in the housing contract that they have income greater than three times the rental installment.

Can my student sign a renewal housing contract without my permission?
Yes, students can execute renewal housing contracts without their guarantor’s permission. However, prior to the renewal period beginning, each student and guarantor will receive communication regarding the process.  Please note that the Islander Housing office sends frequent email reminders and makes regular phone calls to remind students to renew their housing contracts.

Can my student stay in the same apartment and not move out for the summer break?
If you live in Momentum Village and have signed a Full Year term contract (12-months), you do not have to move out of the apartment in August. If you are at Miramar, you need to vacate your room as of May 16th, 2022.  Students interested in living in on-campus housing for the summer are able to apply by visiting their housing portal.

I am a guarantor and I did not receive a renewal email.
Prior to the renewal priority period starting, Islander Housing sent three notifications to students and guarantors explaining the renewal process. If you did not receive correspondence from Islander Housing, please email IslanderHousing@americancampus.com to update your contact information.

My student did not get their second $750 housing credit, what do I do?
All Miramar and Momentum Village residents who had a signed housing contract for the Fall 2021 semester received a $750 housing credit to each student’s S.A.I.L. account. All Miramar residents who had a signed housing contract for the Spring 2022 semester received an additional $750 housing credit that was also applied to each student’s S.A.I.L. account. If your student did not receive either of these credits, please email IslanderHousing@americancampus.com.

What are the housing contract terms available to students?
Miramar only offers an Academic Year term (10-months) which begins in August and ends in May. If a Miramar resident would like to sign a summer housing contract, they can do so via their housing portal.

Momentum Village residents can select if they want an Academic Year term (10-months), which begins in August and ends in May, or a Full Year term (12-months), which begins in August and ends in July. Any Momentum Village resident that signs a Full Year term, will get the last month of their 12-month contract FREE.

What are the payment options to pay for the housing contract installments?
Starting Fall 2022, housing contract installments will be reflected on students’ tuition and fee statements in their S.A.I.L. account. Housing contract totals will be broken up into semesterly charges which allow students and parents to see their total expense for the semester. Payments are due in accordance with the University’s deadline for payment of tuition and fees. Installment plans can be paid via the student’s S.A.I.L account and through the Business Office.  Installment plans are broken up into 4 payments.  Each installment plan must be made per semester.  For Fall 2022, there is a one-time $20 fee to enter the installment plan.  There is a $25 fee for every installment that is paid late.

What is a guarantor?
To mitigate the risk of delinquent or defaulting residents, we require applicants to provide someone to guarantee their housing contract.

What paperwork is required with a guarantor?
The guarantor will need to sign the guaranty agreement. If the resident is not of legal age to execute a contract, the guarantor will be required to sign both the housing contract and guaranty agreement.

When is a guarantor required?
All residents require a guarantor to complete the guaranty agreement.

Where can I view my student’s housing contract?
The Islander Housing contract consists of a first page that is unique to your specific move-in and move-out dates. There are an additional 9 pages that make up the housing contract body. A copy of your student’s housing contract can be found on the student’s resident portal.

Housing Contract Term and Rental Installments

Can I move-in during the middle of the semester?
Yes, if there is an available room. Simply contact us to ask about current availability.

Can I use Financial Aid or my Scholarship to pay my rental installment?
Starting Fall 2022, housing fees will be due per semester and reflected in students’ University Billing Statement listed on their S.A.I.L. account. Housing fees include the housing contract fee which is the full housing amount due per semester. For example, for a student living at Miramar in a 1-Bed/1-Bath Private residence hall space, their housing contract fee is $3,975 per semester. Other housing contract fees include early move-in fees and housing contract cancellation fees. 
 
Tuition and Fees, mandatory meal plan, and semester housing contract fees for Fall 2022 are due by August 16, 2022, and accessible via students’ S.A.I.L. account. Students will be able to start making payments mid-to-late July in S.A.I.L. for the Fall semester. If receiving financial aid funding, students will be able to utilize those funds for housing contract fees. However, all financial aid will first cover tuition, then university fees, followed by meal plans, and finally housing contract fees. The Housing Payment Option (HPO) will no longer be in use starting Fall 2022. 
 
If needed, students may set up a University Installment Plan. For details on University Installment Payment Plans refer to this link. Questions about installment plans can be directed to the TAMU-CC Business Office at business.office@tamucc.edu or by calling 361.825.2600 and select option #5.
