Dates, Deadlines & To-dos
So that we can be best prepared for your arrival to campus, there are several forms and tasks that you need to complete over the summer. The checklist below is a general outline of dates and deadlines for incoming students for the 2019 - 2020 Academic Year. Please use this as a guide of what needs to be done and by when.
Most New Student Forms will be made available in Early June once students receive their CC log-in credentials and will be linked in the checklist below; should forms not be available until a later date, that will be indicated with a "coming soon" below and a "new!" once they have been made available.
If you are participating in a program that requires early arrival, such as the Bridge and Global Scholars Programs, International Student Orientation, or pre-season Athletics, please reference the Information for Early & Delayed Arrivals section of this page and check with program administrators as some items may have different, specifically earlier, due dates.
Students participating in Fall Start Abroad or Winter Start should submit their enrollment forms according to the deadlines below unless otherwise indicated.
While summer travel schedules can prove challenging, we encourage all students to make their best effort to complete these forms on their own as no one knows you better than you know yourself. Allowing your parent or a family member to complete these forms on your behalf can lead to roommate mismatches and First Year Experience course surprises. Should you be unable to complete a form by the due date, please contact the appropriate office in advance of the deadline to make necessary arrangements for form submission; notifying us after the deadline has passed may mean we are unable to accommodate your requests.
