  • Meet and work with our incredible faculty.
  • And much more!

New students can check in online this summer.

My.Carthage Check-in

You must complete online check-in to participate in New Student Orientation.

My.Carthage Check-in deadline was July 31, 2020. 

Students gather in a lounge of one of the buildings in the Oaks Residential Village.

“One of my favorite memories at Carthage was move-in day. I remember walking into my dorm for the first time and thinking, ‘Wow, today is the beginning of a whole new step and I couldn’t be in a more beautiful place.’”
