Congratulations on your acceptance to Drew University!  Now that you have enrolled, it is time to begin preparing for the start of your first semester.  While orientation is designed to assist you in your transition to Drew, there are several matters which you should address before classes begin on Monday, January 26th.

Orientation

Orientation for new students has been scheduled for Friday, January 23, 2015.   Students who expect to reside on campus should check-in at 9:00 a.m. at the Ehinger Center.  Commuter students should check-in at the Ehinger Center at 12:00 p.m.  Please mark your calendars now.  All new students are expected to attend orientation.  Click on Orientation for further information.

Health Forms

All incoming students are required to complete health forms and provide proof of immunization as part of their enrollment.  These forms must be completed in full online except for your immunization record which will have to be signed by your physician and returned to Drew University Health Services Office (“DUHS”).

Students should start this process by clicking “MyHealth Portal” under “Help and Services” accessible through their TreeHouse account or by visiting http://www.drew.edu/health/new-student-documents.

All health forms must be completed before students will be allowed to continue registration or occupy housing.

For additional information regarding required health forms, please contact the Drew University Health Services Office  at 973.408.3414 or health@drew.edu.

Health Insurance

All full-time Drew students are required to have health insurance.  Please be advised that CUE students pay the same premium as graduate and theological students.

Students who already have health insurance may waive out of student insurance through their TreeHouse portal.  Student who intend to enroll in Drew health insurance must also do so through their TreeHouse portal.

Housing

On-campus housing is open to full-time adult students on a space-availability basis. The vast majority of CUE students who live on campus reside in our graduate & theological student dormitories rather than with traditional-aged undergraduates.

If you are interested in living on campus, please visit the Graduate and Theological Housing website and click on the 3rd bullet under Forms that says “Housing Application.”  Please be sure to note in the “comments” box that you are a CUE student.

For more information on housing, please contact Bob Meade, Graduate & Theological Housing Coordinator, at 973.408.3681 or rmeade@drew.edu.

Drew Network Account

As a Drew student, you will receive a network account which will give you access to your Drew email account, TreeHouse  (your student portal online) and your personal network drive. Your Drew uLogin information is sent electronically upon enrollment to the email address you provided on your application form.   If you have not received your uLogin information, please contact Sunita Bhargava at owl@drew.edu or 973.408.3400.

Once you receive your uLogin, please visit drew.edu/activate to activate your network account.  You won’t be able to register until your account has been activated.

Registration

All Drew students are assigned a faculty academic adviser.  Students work in consultation with their academic adviser in making registration selections; this is especially important for students with transfer credit.  Please contact Sunita Bhargava at owl@drew.edu or 973.408.3400 if you have not received your academic adviser’s contact information.

Students should review spring course information prior to speaking with their adviser.  The spring course listing is available at Treehouse by clicking “Look Up Classes” under “Registration Tools.”

After consulting with their adviser, students will be given a PIN number which will enable them to register on-line via TreeHouse.  For detailed instructions on how to register using TreeHouse, please visit the link below:

If you have questions about the registration process, advising or other issues, contact the Continuing Education Office at 973-408-3400.

Parking

Please register your car via the “MyParking” link under “Vehicles on Campus” through your TreeHouse account.  Alternatively, you can register your car online at the following link https://parking.drew.edu/myparking.  Once you have done so, you can go to the Department of Public Safety located in Pepin Service Center to get your parking decal.  Please be advised you will need to bring your Drew University Identification Card, a valid driver’s license, your vehicle registration, and proof of insurance.

Disability Services

Drew’s Office of Disability Services, part of the Academic Services Office, provides reasonable basic accommodations for students with learning differences and physical challenges.  Please contact Diane Moscaritolo, Coordinator of Disability Services at 973.408.3962 for an appointment to discuss your particular situation.
