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 Thursday, August 27.

Orientation

Orientation for Transfer CUE students has been scheduled for Monday, August 10th.  Please click on Orientation Program for a schedule of the day.  Transfer students do not attend orientation on July 7, 8, or 9.

First time freshman college students will be invited to a one-day summer orientation on July 7th, 8th or 9th.  Attendance is required on only one of the dates listed.  Students will need to register online to select a date.  Distance orientation is available to students who cannot come to campus.  First time freshman do not attend orientation on August 10th.

Drew will be hosting a four-day August Orientation program, Sunday, August 23 through Wednesday, August 26.  This program is designed to assist incoming students with their transition to life in the Drew community.  Click on Orientation for further information nearer the time.  Attendance is optional during this 4-day event.

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.  Students housing on campus are required to take a Meningitis shot.  This shot is available from Drew’s Health Services.

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 (review Tuition and Fees for health insurance rate).

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.  Please look for “Waive or Enroll in Student Health Insurance” under the “My Account” link on the top right hand side of your TreeHouse page.

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 fall course information prior to speaking with their adviser.  The fall course listing is available through 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 online via TreeHouse.  For detailed instructions on how to register using TreeHouse, please visit the link below:

Parking

You are required to register your car via the “MyParking” link under “Vehicles on Campus” through your TreeHouse account.  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.  Drew Identification Cards are issued by the Business Office, located at Holloway Hall, after your statement of charges have been cleared.
