Next Steps

We’re committed to helping you through the following steps leading up to move-in day and the start of fall semester classes. We can’t wait to see you here on campus! Pay careful attention to the instructions in each section below. The links direct you to the appropriate place where you will find additional forms or directions. In each section, there is an office and a phone number to call if you have questions.

Enrollment Deposit

The $150 deposit is required to secure your spot in the incoming class and enables you to get a housing assignment and register for courses. The deposit is fully refundable until May 1 for students starting in the Fall semester and until December 1 for students starting in the Spring semester. The deposit will appear as a credit on your bill. By submitting your deposit, you will also have priority in your housing assignment, since we make room assignments based on the date of your deposit. We are expecting a full campus, so don’t delay!

Pay your deposit online via credit or debit card

Housing

Our residence life program provides a supportive community that encourages academic, spiritual, and emotional growth – and is a lot of fun! Once you have paid your enrollment deposit, submit your housing form online. This will help us get to know you better and will assist us as we make room and roommate assignments. Students who are enrolled full-time are required to live in college housing unless they are 21 or older, have senior status with good class standing, are married, or live with a parent or legal guardian.

Course Registration

Course registration is a vital part of the new-student experience! To begin the registration process, you must pay your $150 enrollment deposit and declare your major online. Once these steps are complete, the Admissions Office will work with the Registrar’s Office on your behalf to complete your Fall course schedule. New Fall students will gain electronic access to course schedules when housing packets are mailed in late July.

Social Media

As an Accepted Student, we want you to stay connected with Montreat College! Here’s how you can stay on top of student life, important dates and special events:

 

New Student Parking

Each semester, Montreat College Student Services carefully evaluates capacity and space needs for student parking. As such, the parking permit process is tied to our housing assignment process. Students will be notified about the options for registering their vehicle as a residential or commuter student when they receive their housing information. NOTE: Both residential and commuter students need to submit their housing plans on the Housing Form. If you will not be bringing a car to campus, please complete the No Car on Campus Form.

For additional questions, please refer to the Campus Parking page or contact Student Services at 828-669-8012, extension 3631.

Medical Forms

New students are required to complete several medical forms related to medical history and current medical health. Students are required to submit proof of immunizations prior to the start of classes in accordance with North Carolina state law. Note that some of the medical forms require a physician’s signature, so please read the instructions carefully before submitting.

Health Insurance

All full-time students are required to have a qualifying health insurance plan. Montreat College offers a comprehensive and affordable illness and injury plan through United Healthcare. Information about health insurance open enrollment will be available for Fall 2019 students in July 2019. During the open enrollment period, an insurance waiver will be available online for students who are already enrolled in a qualifying plan. All other students must elect coverage by completing an insurance application online during the open enrollment period; the cost for health insurance will be billed to Fall statements.

Athletics

We are committed to a Christ-centered athletic program distinguished by high caliber teams, strong academic performance, and character development. If you are planning on being a part of one of our 17 teams, there are several documents that you are required to sign and submit before you can be cleared to begin practice. Note that some of the forms require the signature of a parent/guardian if you are a minor.

Download the Physical Form and complete before arriving to campus. Please bring, or email, the completed form to your head coach. You must turn in a copy of your insurance card (front AND back) upon arriving to campus.

Financial Aid

We work with each and every student to create a personalized financial aid package that puts a Montreat College education within reach. Our financial aid policies consider merit, need, and other abilities — matching financial aid packages to your personal situation. There are several steps involved in applying for and receiving financial aid, so please pay careful attention to the steps outlined below:

To receive complete financial award information from Montreat College, new students must complete their FAFSA at fafsa.gov or submit an institutional FAFSA Waiver Form online. When completing or updating your FAFSA, please be sure to list Montreat College as a school of interest so we can process your information in a timely manner.

New students enrolling in the Fall 2019 semester should complete the 2019-20 FAFSA now. Financial Services will begin processing financial award letters for Fall students in early 2019.

Once you have received a financial aid award letter, please use the Montreat College Financial Aid Portal to complete next steps such as accepting financial aid awards and accessing loan options. First-time users should follow the instructions on the portal home page.

Student Account

Montreat College is committed to helping you navigate the financial aspects of your educational investment. In order for you to receive an accurate and timely billing statement, it’s important that you complete the financial-aid process in its entirety so that all financial aid (scholarships, grants and loans) can be credited to your student account. Students with a balance must pay in full or set-up a payment plan in order to move into dorms or begin classes.

Make Online Payment

As a new student, you have the option to enroll in a payment plan before you receive your official bill. Montreat College offers 6-, 5- and 4-month semester payment plans. To keep monthly payment amounts as low as possible, we recommend that Fall students enroll in a 6-month plan by May 1, 2019.

Students who have received their financial aid award letters can estimate monthly payments using the following calculation:

Total charges minus aid offered = Remaining balance
Your remaining balance divided by 6 (or 5 or 4) months = Monthly payment amount

Payment plans require an initial set-up fee of $50; however, there is no fee to adjust your monthly payment amount once you have received your bill. Fall-semester payment plans must be paid in full by October 1 and Spring-semester payment plans must be paid in full by April 1.

Schedule of Fall semester plan payments:

  • 6-month plans begin May 1
  • 5-month plans begin June 1
  • 4-month plans begin July 1
  • 3-month plans begin August 1

Schedule of Spring semester plan payments:

  • 6-month plans begin November 1
  • 5-month plans begin December 1
  • 4-month plans begin January 1
