How to Apply to Live in the Residence Hall

Housing Application Process:

Students who wish to reside on campus must follow the procedures below: 

1. Apply for Admission – Complete the Admissions process and have an official copy of your transcript(s) sent to the 
                                                   Admissions Office. 

All new students are required to be assessed in Reading, English and Math for placement in college level courses. Contact the Admissions Office 205-929-6309 or Student Services at 205-929-6396 to determine whether your ACT scores and high school grades can be used for placement or whether you need to take an Accuplacer Exam.

2. Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) – We recommend you file online at  This is the fastest and easiest way to apply for aid. After completion, be sure to follow up with the College’s Office of Student Financial Services to ensure that the federal data has been received.

Housing Application – Complete the Application (including the signed Statement of Terms and Conditions of Occupancy). Carefully read, initial, and sign each page. Be sure that your social security number is recorded accurately on all forms. Mail the completed Application with a cashier’s check or money order for the one-time *$200.00 non-refundable application fee as soon as possible to:

Lawson State Community College
Business Affairs Office
3060 Wilson Road, SW
Birmingham, AL 35221

*The application fee is not a deposit and will not be deducted from the cost of the room. It is a one-time processing fee and is not required in subsequent terms or years. (Anticipated financial aid cannot be used to pay this fee.)

The Housing Application may be returned without the completed Student Health Form. However, the Student Health Form must be completed and brought at move-in if a room assignment is received. (*Applications will not be processed without the accompanying fee. NOTE: Send cashier's checks or money orders only if applying by mail. Cash may be presented if applying in person.)

4. Register and enroll (pay tuition and fees) as a full-time student in at least 12 semester hours or more. NOTE: Pell Grant is not sufficient to cover tuition/fees and housing fees. Neither housing payments nor room assignments can be processed until you have completed the admission process and have registered as a full-time student (paid for 12 semester hours or more).

Pay the residence hall/housing fees of $2,380 to the Business Affairs Office 205-929-2042. You should contact Student Life at 205-929-6352 to confirm the availability of a housing space. Student Life will confirm the availability of a room and make an assignment. This generates a charge that may be paid to the Business Affairs Office. (You may establish a payment plan using TouchNet via your MyLawson account. However, you must inform Student Life and the Business Affairs Office of your intent to use TouchNet for housing fees. While TouchNet may be used you must account for at least half of the amount due for housing before a final room assignment may be secured.)

Room assignments are made on a first-paid, first-served basis. This step must be completed each semester. (For more information, see Frequently Asked Questions on the left of this page.)
