Your Top 5

We have curated this quick list (called Your Top 5) just for you. These are the key things you need to know (and do) this month to make sure that your 2020–2021 academic year is a successful one.

Plans for Fall 2021

Fall 2021 Plans

We look forward to welcoming you to the spring semester. While it may seem far away, the university is planning for the 2021–2022 academic year, and fall on-campus housing registration will open in early February. We are preparing for increased capacity on campus, both in the residence halls and in our academic buildings. The majority of classes will be held in-person, and all students should plan to have on-campus courses. Please stay tuned to Healthy Hilltop for updates. 

Registration Help before the Semester Begins

Spring 2021 Registration Help

The university is open, and now is the time to get registration help by contacting your faculty advisor or success coach. The Student Success Center and Academic Counseling & Exploration (ACE) is having Saturday Advising Hours on Jan. 16, from 10 a.m.–2 p.m. If you have any questions about your course schedule, your success team will be available to answer them and assist with any advising requests you may have. Please note, Zoom links will be added to the calendar event on Jan. 15. 

Housing Check-In and Return to Campus

Returning to Campus

New students moving on campus for the first time may do so on Friday, Jan. 15th.

Returning students may move in beginning Saturday, Jan. 16, at 9 a.m. If you are currently living in a residence hall, taking classes or working on campus, or visiting campus at any point you must have ordered your Covid-19 test and received results.
