Cost and payment policy
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 of your meals, programs and activities for the week. Your student account will be charged on the 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.
What to do if you cannot attend
All first-year students are expected to attend Fall Welcome. Please contact the Office of Student Transitions at (269) 387-2167 if you have questions or concerns or if you have a circumstance that prevents you from attending Fall Welcome. Students attending band camp or playing a fall sport—including football, 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.
