Congratulations on having been accepted to CIU!
Now that you’ve been accepted, we have helpful checklists to ensure a smooth transition to becoming a CIU student.
- Undergraduate Resident Checklist - Fall 2018
- Undergraduate Commuter Checklist - Fall 2018
Undergraduate Welcome Week:
Graduate and Seminary:
When you apply, you will receive access to MyCIU. Once you have been fully accepted, you will receive full student access and will be notified of this change by the Registrar's Office.
Submit the $100 enrollment deposit. The enrollment deposit is applied toward your first semester's tuition. If conditionally accepted, submit any outstanding requirements (such as final official transcripts) to become fully accepted. Missing requirements show on MyCIU under your Application Progress.
Financial Aid Office
If you are applying for financial aid, you follow these steps to ensure you are considered for all aid you may qualify for. Contact the Financial Aid Office with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or (803) 807- 5036.
All students taking classes on campus must submit a health form before being cleared to register for classes. Students participating in collegiate athletics must also submit Physical Examination Forms to the CIU athletic trainer, Ryan Lail at email@example.com prior to participating.
All students are required to have health insurance coverage. Under the federal government's health care law (the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act), you must have a plan that qualifies as minimum essential coverage or pay a fee on your next federal tax return. There is no special student exception to the federal requirement to have health insurance. CIU does not provide a student health insurance; the student is responsible to secure his or her own coverage. Coverage is available for US citizens at www.HealthCare.gov and Non-US citizens at www.InternationalStudentInsurance.com.
Undergraduate students attend Ram Ready (undergraduate orientation). Graduate student orientation varies by location and program.
Residence hall students are required to submit a $100 housing deposit to reserve housing. Students living in the residence halls complete the New Student Housing Survey and review our list of room essentials and prohibited items.
New undergraduate students will be pre-registered for classes once final official transcripts have been received, new students will be able to make schedule changes at Ram Ready.
The Academic Success Center at CIU coordinates the provision of reasonable accommodations for qualified students with disabilities. Please notify your admissions counselor if you will need any accommodations.
