If you are headed this way, now’s the time to set a course toward Route 1896, the check-in process that is required before you can pick up your room keys.

The Route 1896 Schedule for Wednesday, Aug. 15 will accommodate Helms Residents, 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.; and Commuters, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. On Thursday, Aug. 16, all other new residential students will be welcomed at the following times, by alphabetical order of last name: A-E, 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.; F-M, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.; and N-Z, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

On Saturday, Aug. 18, Route 1896 will open for returning students, by alphabetical order: A-E, 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.; F-M, 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.; and N-Z, 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

If you haven’t already turned them in, you’ll need to submit your health records. And all students must turn in a health insurance waiver or enroll in the University insurance plan. You will also need to submit all financial aid documents and have a zero balance with anticipated aid or be enrolled in a payment plan with the first payment made.

Parents, to make sure you find all the information you’ll need, check out this link to the New Student Orientation (NSO 100P) course and be sure to set aside time to attend a Parent Welcome Session. Those are Wednesday, Aug.15, at 11 a.m. for residential students and 2 p.m. for commuters and on Thursday at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Once students have completed Route 1896, Orientation will get underway. New students, this is a requirement. Orientation kicks off at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 16 and will run through Convocation, which is set for Sunday, Aug. 19 at 5 p.m.
