VERIFYING YOUR STATUS
Before proceeding below, please log into the myCampus portal from the homepage in order to access the StarRez system. Within that system, please verify your status with the Office of Housing & Residence Life. NOTE: Just because you received a Welcome Weekend invitation which included commuter-specific information does not mean that your status (request for exemption, etc.) has been approved/finalized. And, if it has not been, you will need to act right away.
The Welcome Weekend event has been designed for all student types, including commuters. In fact, all students are expected to attend. The portion of the program being held the afternoon of Friday, August 15th is particularly important and includes final opportunities to wrap up loose ends before the semester commences Monday morning. Students will be expected to check-In for the program between 1:00 and 1:45 p.m. and should report to the 1st Floor Lobby of the Falcon Center to do so.
In addition to key campus offices being open Friday afternoon - evening, parking passes will be officially issued and the Bookstore will be operational and food will be plentiful to enjoy. Students will furthermore be trained on course tools such as Blackboard and will be specifically oriented to their assigned academic unit by their own dean and faculty members (a very different process than that which students experience at Summer Orientation).
Information crucial to each student’s success (regardless of age, student type or major) will be covered in-depth. And, the preparation does not stop there – on Saturday and Sunday, informative sessions continue, surrounded by entertainment and activities for all to enjoy. Prizes will be plentiful! Come out that weekend and get connected – to us and to your peers. The more comfortable you feel as the semester begins, the more likely you are to find success!
Students must RSVP to attend the program. In order to do so, please complete and submit the electronic form below. And, watch closely after clicking 'submit' - the next page that opens will include the electronic confirmation packet.
