Fall Welcome costs $235 for first-year and transfer students living on campus and $165 for first-year and transfer commuter students. This fee covers early move-in, and all your meals, programs, and activities for the week. Your student account will be charged on your first tuition bill you receive in August. No refunds will be issued after you have checked into your residence hall on your move-in day. Please follow your assigned move-in day and time to avoid an additional $100 fee.
All first-year students are expected to attend Fall Welcome. Please contact the First-Year Experience Office at (269) 387-2167 if you have questions or concerns, or if you have a circumstance that prevents you from attending Fall Welcome.
Students playing fall sport—including football, mens and womens soccer, cross country, and volleyball—will be excused from attending Fall Welcome due to schedule conflicts. Your registration will automatically be canceled and you will not be charged.
Students in marching band will attend part of Fall Welcome week before attending band camp and will be charged a prorated fee of $125.
