Fall 2015 Undergraduate Early Arrivals

An undergraduate early arrival is any undergraduate resident who needs to move-in to on-campus housing prior to the official opening of the residence halls on Friday, August 28, 2015.

The program coordinator is responsible for inputting information about the early arrival students into a database managed by Residential Life.  The early arrival database will be available within 2-3 business days of submitting program coordinator/group information to Kellie Kirby. Students in the early arrival database will receive detailed instructions about check-in via e-mail from Residential Life.
