Returning Student Check-in
Important Information for Spring 2020
We’re committed to helping you through the following steps leading up to check-in in January and the start of spring semester classes. We can’t wait to see you back on campus after Christmas break! 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. As a reminder, your bill must be paid in full before you can move into the residence halls and begin classes, so be sure to work through all the sections on this page before you get to the Student Accounts section. Returning student check-in is scheduled for Tuesday, January 7th, 2020 at the Bell Library. (Please note that some winter athletic teams may be returning during earlier times and dates). Check-in will occur at the L. Nelson Bell Library from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
If you have not yet registered for spring semester classes, be sure to take care of that before the end of the spring semester. The best opportunity to connect with faculty members is while school is still in session, so if you need help connecting with an advisor from your area of interest, let us know! You can start the process by reviewing the available course offerings and schedule by semester and year.
Questions? Contact the Registrar’s Office at 828-669-8012 ext. 3735 or stop by their office in Gaither Hall.
If you have not yet made your housing plans for next semester, please take care of that as soon as possible. If you are planning to move off-campus, keep in mind that your financial aid is impacted by this change. Institutional aid is reduced by 50% for students living off-campus. Please let Student Services and the Student Financial Services Office know of your housing plans so can make sure you have the correct financial aid award and bill.
Once you have been housed for next semester, you will be able to register your car. At this time, only blue permits are available. Gold parking permits are sold out; you can put your name on the waitlist if you’d like. If you are a commuter and/or live at Ridgecrest, you will be able to purchase a silver pass.
Parking fees are pro-rated if purchased in January.
Parking questions? Contact Student Services at 828-669-8012 x3631.
