All students: We strongly recommend that all students complete all of the following items to order books, register a bike or car, or change your directory settings.

Off-campus students: Students who live off campus must complete Item 7 (below) by September 11. Failure to do so will result in a late fee.

Items in red are highly recommended to help ensure your safety on campus.
