3. Review important tasks

Once you have secured your spot there are some important topics that will require your attention:

  • Review important dates on the 2022-2023 academic calendar.
  • Learn more about on campus housing and dining options.
  • View helpful information for families.
  • Visit student accounts for financial information.
  • Orientation for the Class of 2026 will take place August 24 through August 28. More information to come regarding Orientation and the First-Year Dashboard.
  • Log in to the Student Patient Portal to complete important health forms.
  • International students: Learn about applying for a student Visa.

    Refer to our International Student Services page for student support and information about the Visa process. Once your enrollment deposit has been received, the I-20 process can begin. Please be sure that you have submitted a copy of your passport photo page through your applicant status portal. Your passport must be valid in order for an I-20 form to be issued. If you are currently studying in a U.S. school on an F-1 Visa, a Visa transfer will be issued upon your high school graduation. We will contact you when we are mailing the form, so you will know when to expect it.
