The New Student Checklist is available to new students in the time leading up to their first week of classes. To get an idea of what you can expect to see on the checklist, view the sample checklist below.

Once the checklist goes live, you can log in to see a personalized list, which will include the status of each item as it pertains to you. The status of each item will be one of the following:

  • Incomplete: you haven’t completed/returned the form
  • Complete: you have completed/returned the form
  • Unchanged: either you haven’t completed the form, or it’s a form for which manual processing is required before it shows as complete.
  • Nothing: this isn’t a form, or it’s not one we can check the status of from this page.
