Apply for Housing

If you plan to live on campus, you must complete a housing application. 

 

Email, Technology & Computing

Knowing how to use your campus account is vital to your success at the Lake Campus. Campus computer account information will be included with the orientation information mailed to you. Please take the time to become familiar with your log-in information prior to orientation. We highly recommend you download the Microsoft Web App to your mobile device. This is a quick and easy way for you to use your university e-mail.

Registered students with documented disabilities may be eligible to receive assistance from the Office of Disability Services.  Please contact the ODS prior to your orientation. 

 

During Orientation

 

Bring ALL Login Information

 

Students will have the opportunity to schedule their fall classes at Orientation. Make sure to bring all your login information (on the back of your Checklist) for the advising session.

 

Resource Fair

Before the orientation presentations begin, we will have a resources fair to provide you with information about campus services, involvement and departments.

 

Academic Advising

At orientation all students will have the opportunity to attend an academic advising session. Academic advising sessions are major specific and during the session the advisor will begin the process of scheduling classes.

 

Parents

Parents are welcome to attend orientation with your child. You will have some free time while students are advising, so feel free to bring a book or check out the bookstore while you wait!  Free wi-fi is available on campus.

 

After Orientation

 

Complete Orientation Survey

After your orientation session attendees are encouraged to complete the orientation survey that will be available in the Pilot course. Your feedback is appreciated!

 

Academic Advising Follow Up

Buying Books

After you register for courses you will be able to get your books through the Lake Campus Barnes & Noble Bookstore. 

 

Paying Tuition & Fees

Student bills are generated around the first of August.  If you register for fall classes before August 16, your bill is due August 15.

There is so much to do on campus besides going to class! There are campus organizations for you to join, events to attend and friends to meet!
