Clear your transportation.
If you are a freshman, you are not able to have a car on campus. If you are an upperclassman transfer student, you will need to register your car and purchase a parking pass from Security. If you are bringing a bike to campus, it also needs to be registered with Security.
Talk about what you/your parents expect to know.
Because of FERPA laws, the registrar’s office cannot discuss academic progress with parents unless they have written consent from the student. A form is available that grants this permission. Judicial information is also included under FERPA. This is a separate waiver. The student can decide at any time to remove this permission.
Think about health insurance.
Will you remain covered under your family’s plan? Every full-time student must be covered by health insurance. If you will remain on a family plan, you must waive school health insurance and provide proof of coverage. Every full-time student must go online and enroll or waive. If you do not, you will be charged for the school insurance, which is non-refundable, and a registration hold will be placed on your account after August 1.
Visit your family doctor.
All freshmen must have their physical exam forms filled out and returned to the health center before the start of school August 2014.
