Now let's make it official:

Starting in January?

  • Complete your housing application

    We know there's a great roommate out there for you, and we want to help you find each other.

    Calvin’s residence life program has an amazing record for producing successful roommate pairs, and they rely on the information you provide. If you’ve already chosen a roommate, be sure to list each other on your applications.

    Note: your housing application won't be processed until your enrollment deposit is received.

  • Choose your orientation program(s)

    Orientation at Calvin involves more than just getting the lay of the land. Register for one of four Passport Orientation sessions offered in the spring or summer. Parents are encouraged to attend, too. But don’t stop there. Optional programs like Wilderness Orientation (think outdoor adventure) or IMPACT (for incoming students of color), help you build community right away.

  • Take your placement tests and complete academic advising forms

    You’ll want to be ready for your advising appointment during Passport Orientation, so be sure to complete the following at least 10 days before your orientation session:

    • 3-minute academic questionnaire (as soon as possible)
  • Review your financial aid award package

    Carefully review your financial aid award package, accept or decline loans, and notify us of any other scholarships and financial aid you are receiving. You’ll need your official Calvin username (shown on your applicant status page) and password to log in.

    • Go to Accept Loans
    • Choose the upcoming academic year
    • Accept or decline loans
    • Notify us of any other scholarships and financial aid you are receiving
    • Submit

    Federal Direct Loans help make your college education possible, and you can defer payment on loans until after graduating college. Before loans are disbursed you must finalize your loans by completing an online counseling session and sign a master promissory note.

  • Complete your Health forms

    Regardless of your insurance, you are invited to use Calvin Health Services as your source of primary care while at college. Log into Calvin’s secure patient portal to complete required health and immunization forms.

  • Submit your final transcript

    Please arrange to have your final academic transcript(s) sent to Calvin Admissions, including those from colleges or universities where you’ve been enrolled.
