New and Returning Students

All new and returning students will complete a check-in process when they arrive to campus in the fall. Check-in will take place and begin in Salveson Lobby. Please see schedule for the times and date of your check-in. In addition, students residing on campus will need to move in to their assigned residence hall after checking in at the stations in Salveson Lobby. It is highly recommended that students and families arrive early between 8:30 a.m. and 10 a.m. on the day of your assigned arrival day to have sufficient time to complete the check in and move in process.

Warrior Crossing (Atrium) will be open for grab and go breakfast and lunch for all students and families each arrival day. Meals will begin and be provided for students beginning the evening of their assigned arrival date. Students arriving before this date are responsible for their own meals.

It is required to arrive on your scheduled arrival date so that we may have everything prepared for you. If you must arrive early you may submit an early arrival request to the Office of Student Life. Please note that early arrivals are charged $25/day for this convenience. If you have been approved for an early arrival and are arriving on a non-scheduled arrival day, check-ins will take place between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m. on weekdays only. All students that arrive before their scheduled camp day must be approved and confirmed 48 hours in advance through Student Life ( or (641) 585-8160).

Note: No early arrivals will be allowed to check into the residence halls before August 5, 2013 as there will be no hall staffing on campus and deep cleaning of rooms will continue until August 4. Please make arrangements to arrive on your specified arrival date. If you must arrive to Forest City early, we recommend the Super 8 (641) 585-1300 or Knights Inn (641) 585-5060 for lodging. Housing forms and housing deposit must be complete and paid before students are assigned and can move into housing.
