Welcome to Summer Registration
Students, welcome to your new home away from home. Parents, families and guests: we will review the schedule and logistics for the day and introduce you to University leadership.
|UIndy Hall, Schwitzer Student Center|
Accounting and Financial Aid
Understanding the tuition bill is only part of the picture when it comes to paying for college. This session will walk you through the financial aid process, resources for payments, Satisfactory Academic Progress, payment plans and making payments, as well as how the student can give access to others to view and pay.
Enjoy some refreshments and stretch your legs to relieve information overload! Students who are living on campus in the fall should remain in UIndy Hall. Those who are commuting to and from campus will move to the Trustees Dining Room.

Students who are planning to live on campus in residence halls will learn how to prepare for this important experience. The Office of Residence Life will provide details regarding the housing application and deposit, roommate assignments, what to bring with you, meal plans, and how to budget your meal plan throughout the academic year.
Commuting to and Dining on Campus
Students who are commuting to and from campus will learn about resources provided specifically for them including a special lounge and study space, lockers, parking, and various events such as Commuter Appreciation Week.

Course Registration and Academics in Your First Year
This session will provide an overview of the registration process and some items to consider when choosing courses, including navigating My UIndy and what to expect in your first semester. Later today, students will meet one-on-one with an academic advisor.
Orientation Leaders will escort students and families to the academic meetings. These sessions are divided by academic major and content area. Students who are undecided or have not yet declared a major are encouraged to attend the session for University Studies or a content area of potential interest. Secondary education majors should attend the content area in which they would like to teach. Dual majors will need to choose one session. Students and guests are welcome to attend separate sessions. This session will provide curriculum information for the first semester, how to prepare for the academic advising appointment this afternoon, and any unique requirements pertaining to the student's major.
Lunch and Resource Fair
Lunch is provided for all students and their family members and guests in the Main Dining Hall. This is a great time to recap the morning and discuss potential coursework for the fall before splitting up for the afternoon.

Empowering Your Student for Success (families and guests only)
Students and families go through a transitional period in the initial phases of attending college. This session will help support systems, like families, learn how best to encourage your student, when to step in, and when to challenge your student. The academic calendar will be used to demonstrate important times to check in with your student on certain topics, such as mid-term grades, adding/dropping classes, registering for classes, and financial aid.
Break (families and students only)

The Next Step (all)

Do not forget to turn in any remaining forms.
