    • In the checklist, first activate the Self-Service Banner portal and the university email account. View financial aid awards, class schedules, pay semester bills etc. on your portal. Campus offices will use your email to share information and updates.
    • Available Now: If you've decided to attend, submit the enrollment form!
    • February 1: The course registration form will be available. Once you submit the form, it goes to the Registrar's Office so they can create your fall semester schedule. This will confirm your fall attendance.
