Residence Selection Process

Resident students at Marist College are placed in college housing through the College’s Priority Point System. The Priority Point System is unique in that it allocates points to each student in various academic and personal categories that directly affect the students’ eligibility for housing. The system is designed to reward the student who excels academically and who contributes productively to the Marist College community. There are five categories where points may be earned. The categories are: Grade Point Average; Campus Involvement; Disciplinary History; Room Damages; and Condition of Room. Detailed information on the Priority Point System can be found at
