There are a few things you can be doing to prepare for your transition to Bethel. As always, if you have questions, please let us know!

  1. Complete your enrollment.

    Admissions will send you a list of important next steps to take, including housing and class registration details. Please complete all items on your enrollment checklist as soon as possible.
  2. Check your class schedule and listed major(s).

    Once your class schedule is posted on the Student Academics page, please review it. Check that your transcript accurately reflects your chosen major(s) and the credits you expect to transfer in. To start the semester well, take time now to complete the tasks on the New Student Resources page.

  3. Order your books.

    Bethel Campus Store - Order your course materials online to avoid the lines and have your order delivered to your home or pick it up at the store before the semester starts!

  4. Ask questions.

    The following support offices are ready to assist you before you arrive on campus as well as during the school year. If you have a question, take time to reach out now:

    Financial Aid: We're here to answer your financial aid questions.
    Business Office: We're here to answer your tuition payment questions.
    Information Technology Services: We're available to help you set up access to the network, Wi-Fi, printers, Moodle (our course portal), and more.
    Sodexo Dining Services: Learn more about meal plans and nutrition and dietary requests.
    Accessibility Resources and Services: We work with students with disabilities to eliminate barriers to learning and living in the Bethel community.
    Advising Center: We're here to help you with academic course planning.
    Safety and Security: Learn about campus shuttles, parking restrictions, visitor access, and our campus services.
  5. Gather your things.

    If you're a commuter student, apply for a parking permit and learn about parking guidelines.

    If you'll be living on campus, make a list of what to bring. Review a packing list from our residence life staff, or check out this packing list from a student's perspective. (These lists also tell you what not to bring: Two-prong extension cords, for example, are not allowed.)

    If you have a campus job or anticipate applying for one soon, bring documentation to complete an I-9 form.
  6. Review your arrival schedule.

    If you're starting fall semester (end of August), review Welcome Week details.  If you are coming in the January/February, check out our Winter Welcome page. As always, if you have questions, please let us know. We're ready to help!
