Transfer Student Arrival and Move-In


9-10 a.m.
All transfer students (commuter, off-campus, and residential) will arrive on campus from 9 to 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 6. Students should enter campus at the north entrance (at the stoplight) and park in the north lots. Student check-in/arrival will be held in the A. W. Clausen Center for World Business. We ask that parents and family members wait in their vehicles while students complete the check-in/arrival process.

After checking in, residential students will drive south on Campus Drive where Public Safety will direct families to unloading spots. After unloading their vehicle, residential students will need to move their cars to their permitted lots and family members will need to move their cars to the South Lower Parking Lot.

Please note: Those Residential students may only have two people assisting them with move-in. Campus Drive will be open to one-way, southbound traffic one hour prior to the start of arrival and one hour after arrival ends.
