Forms and Deadlines Checklist for First-Year Students

The following checklist is intended for new first-year students who have paid their deposit and received acknowledgement of acceptance from the University. Most of the steps below can be completed in one sitting, but several will require additional time to complete; please do not wait until the deadline to complete them.

A complete Enrolled Student Checklist for the Class of 2027 will be available in the spring of 2023.
