Households that consist entirely of full-time students and that don’t qualify for an exception are not eligible to live in the 203 income-restricted apartments at the Sitka. The following is a brief summary of the current regulations about student status.
A “full-time student” is defined as one who is enrolled in an educational institution for some part of five calendar months during the calendar year for the number of hours or courses, which is considered to be a full-time attendance. The five calendar months need not be consecutive. The determination of full-time or part–time status is based on the criteria used by the educational institution the student is attending.
Some exceptions do apply. Please note that the following is a very brief summary of the exceptions.
At no time during the lease, or any extension thereof, may the unit be occupied entirely by full-time students who are not otherwise exempt. If a household qualified at move-in but later became comprised entirely of full-time students (not meeting one of the exemptions), the household would no longer be qualified to occupy the unit.
