Before Moving to Campus

There are a few things to do before coming to campus. Complete the list below to be ready for your first year.

Complete Your First-Year Studies Assignments

In addition to FYS 100, a required online course that takes place over the summer, we strongly encourage you to enroll in other first-year courses that take place during the fall and spring.

Work with your advisor to decide which one is right for you. If you have any questions, contact First-Year Studies at

Buy Your Parking Permit

All students with a vehicle must purchase a parking permit. For more information, see the Parking and Transit page.

Make a VolCard deposit

Deposit money into your VolCard or Dining Dollars account through the VolCard site.  Friends and relatives can also make deposits to your account.
