    In order to be in good standing with the university, new students need to complete term start requirements. The final deadline to complete these requirements is:

    Fall term: Jul 19, 2013
    Winter term: Nov 1, 2013
    Spring term: Mar 11, 2014

    If you do not complete term start requirements, your housing assignments may be removed and holds will be placed on your account.

    In Good Standing Steps

    Things to Do

    • If eligible, complete work study form
    • Register for and attend Summer, Winter or Spring Orientation
    • Transfer students must submit official transcripts, with final grades, to Admissions (transfer students enrolled in a summer course should bring final transcripts to Term Start)
    • Make hotel reservations (if needed)
    • Print schedule from jwuLink
    • Submit parking permit

    Things to Bring

    • If living in campus housing, check Residential Life for list of items to bring
    • If eligible for work study, check list of acceptable original documentation
    • If parking a car on campus, check parking for list of needed documents
    • Plan on budgeting $700-1,400 per year for books and supplies. This is not included in your tuition. Books and supplies are available in our bookstore. You can also see required books in jwuLink class schedules.
