Fall Welcome Program Cost

Cost/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 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. A $100 additional fee will be charged if you do not follow the move-in schedule and move in a day earlier than your assigned day.

What if I cannot attend?

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 in marching band or playing fall sports will be excused from attending Fall Welcome due to schedule conflicts.  Your registration will automatically be canceled and you will not be charged.
