Let’s make it official

Starting Calvin in…

Interim or spring semester:

  • 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.

  • Register for orientation

    Transitions Orientation involves more than just getting the lay of the land.

  • Complete your academic advising form

    You’ll want to be ready for your advising appointment during Transitions 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 additional 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.

    Additional forms may include:

    • Accommodation Request Form – Disability Services
    • Photography Release Waiver
    • Service-Learning Waiver
  • 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.
