Yes! Parents are invited to attend many of the scheduled New Student Registration activities with you, but there will also be some unique parent-specific information throughout the day. The Wildcat Bash is designed specifically for you, the student only, so parents can enjoy the parent reception while you party like a Wildcat!

You are not required to, but we highly encourage it! The events have been specifically designed so that you can attend the Wildcat Bash and register for your classes with only one trip to campus! You must sign up by March 1st for the event(s) you plan to attend. In order to be eligible for New Student Registration, you must be accepted and we must receive your tuition deposit. Please contact the Admissions Office if you have any questions about eligibility.

There will be other opportunities for onsite registration this summer, but this is a one-of-a-kind event. Online signup for other New Student Registration events will be available after the Admitted Student Weekend.

Yes! It’s part of the college experience! The first meal will be lunch on Saturday, and we will offer food throughout the event. No need to worry about being hungry!

If you are planning to attend New Student Registration and the Wildcat Bash you should plan to be on campus from 10 a.m. until approximately 8 p.m. Saturday.
