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 now.

Orientation

New and transfer CUE students starting at Drew during the fall 2014 semester are invited to attend a two-part orientation program.

The first part of orientation is designed to provide assistance with your academic transition to the College of Liberal Art.  This one-day Summer Orientation Program will be held on August 18th.  If you attended orientation at the end of June you do not have to attend the August 18th date.   At orientation, you will meet with fellow students and learn about the numerous resources and opportunities available to you at Drew.  You will also meet with an academic advisor, take placement tests, and select and register for your fall 2014 courses.

Students who are unable to attend on-campus orientation can attend our Distance Orientation program throughout July in which students are scheduled for a 30-minute conversation with an academic advisor.  This appointment will be held either via Skype or a telephone call.  Please contact Sunita if you will not be able to attend on-campus orientation.

The second part of our orientation program will take place Friday, August 29 through Monday, September 1, 2014.  This program is designed to assist new students in their transition to the Drew Community.   Please mark your calendars now.  All new students are required to attend!  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.  No substitutions for online forms will be accepted.  Please be advised, some documents will have to be printed, completed and mailed back to the Drew University Health Services Office (“DUHS”).

Students should start this process 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.  Students without completed health forms may be de-enrolled from classes!

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-available 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 heading 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 gives you access to your Drew email account, TreeHouse Self-Service  (your student information portal) 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 have 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 an faculty academic adviser.  Students work in consultation with their advisers 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 contact information for your adviser.

Students should review fall course information prior to speaking with their adviser.  The fall course listing is available at Treehouse Self Service 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 http://www.drew.edu/registrar/student/treehouse-and-self-service-registration-instructions.

If you have questions about the registration process, advising or other issues, please contact the Continuing Education Office at 973-408-3400.  Fall classes begin on Tuesday, September 2nd!
