We can’t wait to welcome you into the UC community, but first things first – it’s time to pay your enrollment deposit. This will trigger several things to get you started on your journey to becoming a Golden Eagle.


Pay Enrollment Deposit

Now What?


New Student Orientation – Freshman and transfer students will have orientation programs scheduled to enable them to integrate quickly into UC life. During Orientation students will begin their University course, socialize and meet their classmates, and also meet many of our returning students. Orientation Information.

UC Email and Log In Credentials – You will receive an email from Technology Services ( with instructions for logging in to the UC Network and activating your UC email.  This email will be sent to your personal email account that is on file with the university. If you have been admitted and made your deposit and you do not receive this email, first check your spam or clutter folder. If it is not there, contact to alert them.

Class Schedules – Your schedule will be created by your Freshman Student Advisor (FSA). Our Director of First Year Experience, Debbie Bannister, will then reach out to you, welcoming you to UC and giving you instructions on how to view your new schedule.

Housing – If you are living on campus, you will hear from our Housing Office. Visit our housing page to find out about our home-away-from living options.

Orientation – Make plans to attend Summer Orientation, Advising and Registration (SOAR) prior to starting classes. At SOAR, you can take care of everything from your class schedule, to meal plans, housing, parking passes, and your student ID. You can meet with faculty, talk with financial aid, and get to know your fellow classmates. You have several dates to choose from (and we encourage you to bring your parents as well).


Congratulations on your acceptance – we’re looking forward to seeing you on campus!
