Can I use my financial aid?
Although we are not connected with the university and college system's billing, you may be able to use your financial aid and scholarship funds toward your housing. We accept rental payments in these forms: Money order, cashier’s check, personal check, or credit cards and checks online.
Will you send me a bill each month for rent?
No, we do not invoice for recurring rent charges. It is your responsibility to pay rent on the first of each month. The first rent payment is due early on July 15th.
If I am over 21, do I need to have a guarantor?
Yes, we require a parental/sponsor guarantee from all of our residents under 25. If you are over 25, Pierce Property Management will accept, in lieu of guarantor, a deposit that is equal to one and a half (1.5) months rent. This is the only option, if you want to sign without a guarantor. If you sign your lease with a guarantor, you do not have to pay a deposit. Your guarantor must be at least 25 years in age and preferably a family member. The guarantor must reside in the United States. If the guarantor is not a family member, they must show proof of income (must make 3 times rental amount.)
When is my first payment due?
For fall move-ins, the first rent payment is due July 15th. If you move in for our current 2018-2019 lease term the first month’s rent is due on or before your move in date.
If I pay in full, do I get a discount?
