By

Dean of Students Office

August 23, 2021

Attention Returning Fall Student-Athletes and Special Programs Groups:

As a student who is a fall athlete or involved in supporting a special program for the opening of the College, you will arrive on different dates for pre-season and program activities. This message includes overall information related to what you need for arrival check-in as well as your actual arrival date. Please read the information carefully:

Arrival for the academic year is outlined below. On-Campus Check-In on your arrival day will take place in the A. W. Clausen Center for World Business on the north end of campus. See campus map/directions

What to Bring

  • Your Student Identification Card. This ID will be required in order for you to start orientation. If you have misplaced your ID, don’t worry. We can make you a new one.
  • Your Virtual Check-In Sticker. Upon completion of Online Check-In through the My.Carthage portal, you will receive a virtual check-in sticker that confirms you have completed all of the check-in requirements. Print/save this sticker and bring it to New Student Orientation for proof of completion.
  • Your COVID-19 Vaccination Verification Card. Prior to arriving on campus, we encourage all students to fill out their vaccination status form online. If you have not filled out your form online, please bring your COVID-19 vaccination verification card to campus upon arrival for our records. Carthage requires that all students confirm their vaccination status by Wednesday, Sept. 15. Learn more about vaccination requirements

See New Student Orientation information

Important notes for residential students:

  • Residential students may only have two people assisting them with Move-In to manage physical distancing within the buildings.
  • All students and visitors helping with Move-In, regardless of vaccination status, are required to wear masks inside campus buildings. View mask requirements
  • Residential students should consider bringing a dolly, cart, or small wagon to assist you in moving items in and out of the facilities.  Carthage will not have these available.
  • Campus Drive will be open to one-way, southbound traffic one hour prior to the start of arrival and one hour after arrival ends. See campus map
  • Carthage does not provide insurance coverage for students’ personal belongings. We recommend you verify that your homeowner’s insurance policy covers student belongings or consider securing a policy through your insurance company.
