Activate your Student Account

Why do I need to activate my student account?

Incoming admitted and transfer students-who have paid their deposit-need to activate their student account to access certain services. When you applied to Calvin, you were able to set your Calvin Passphrase that provides access to some Calvin services so you could continue the enrollment process. Once you have committed to attend Calvin by paying your deposit, you will have access to all additional technology services available to Calvin students.

What additional services does this account provide?

When should the account be activated?

You should activate your account after you have paid your deposit.
