What to do when

Some tasks and dates to know! 


Apply for admission and scholarships as soon as possible. Applications for admission are accepted up to 15 months before the first class day each semester. More time as an admitted student offers you more time to plan a successful transition. A late enrollment fee of $50 may be charged to a student account if admission and enrollment activities are not completed prior to the first day of classes. 

November 1
Scholarships: Incoming students apply for scholarships
  • Nov. 1 is the priority deadline incoming freshmen and for transfer students who plan to enroll in the spring semester.
  • For transfer students who will enroll in summer or fall, the deadline is Feb. 1.

Some scholarships have unique application deadlines.


You can apply for housing any time after being admitted. Applying for housing is a two-step process.

  • The residence hall application (step 1) becomes available in September.
  • The residence hall contract (step 2) becomes available in November.

While there are no specific deadlines, contract completion (a first-come, first-served basis) will determine room availability. Please begin the process by completing the residence hall application as soon as you decide you want to live on campus.
