First-Year Commuter Students

guy and girlFIRST-YEAR Commuter Students are required to attend Fall Welcome.

Transfer Students interested in Fall Welcome will need to register for the program and may do so by calling the office at (269) 387-2167.

It is especially important for commuter students to participate in Fall Welcome since commuters do not live on campus and they do not receive as much exposure to campus resources and happenings as students who live in the residence halls. Fall Welcome is a fantastic way for commuters to become familiar with campus, learn how to get involved and discover key resources for their first semester. All of these elements are crucial to a student's success in his or her first semester. Commuters will also meet other students and make social connections that will help them ease the transition from high school to college.

The Fall Welcome fee for commuter students is $165 and will be billed to your student account in August.
