New Student Information
We look forward to welcoming you to campus to start your Faith experience! Below is information and necessary forms that must be read and completed before starting classes this fall. Students who have completed all the necessary steps in advance will earn a Fast Track Registration. This will allow for a shortened registration time and enable moving into the dorms sooner after arrival. If you are unable to complete all of the forms before registration, part of your registration process will include completing any missing forms.
Please read through each of the sections of information carefully, and complete each form. A fast track registration checklist is available for you to track your progress. You will receive a confirmation email after the successful submission of each form. If you have questions as you go through this page, please contact the Admissions Office (firstname.lastname@example.org or 1.888.324.8448).
