A Spring Checklist for Accepted Students

Happy first official day of spring! Wherever you are, we hope it’s a beautiful day.

If you’re an accepted student, the spring is a great time to get a lot of important things taken care of.

Pay your enrollment fee & fill out a housing form. You will need to pay a $200 enrollment fee before registering for classes, as well as submit a housing form. You can do both at puc.edu/reserve. If you pay your fee before May 1, $100 of it will be put towards your fall tuition bill!

Apply for PUC scholarships. If you haven’t already, check out what scholarships PUC offers. There’s still plenty of time to write those essays! See a full list of PUC scholarships at puc.edu/scholarships. Be sure to check out the Maxwell Scholarship, which is worth approximately $116,000!

Submit your FAFSA. One of the most important things you can do to prepare for college is to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA is an online form you will submit each year that determines your eligibility for student financial aid. This information is used by the Student Finance office to put together your financial aid award. Note: If you have 10 minutes, you can use PUC’s net price calculator to get a preliminary estimate of how much aid you may qualify for. Get started now at puc.edu/npc.

Register for classes. You will be assigned an academic advisor in the program you’re planning to study and will work closely with them to come up with your perfect (or relatively close to perfect!) class schedule for the fall. This professor knows the ins and outs of your major and works with you to foster academic, spiritual, and personal growth. Your advisor will be one of the most important people you work with on campus during your years at PUC since they need to approve your class schedule each quarter to help make sure you stay on track to complete your degree!  

Submit your health forms. Turning in your health forms before you get to campus will only make your future life easier! You can find the forms at puc.edu/healthservices.

If you have any questions while working on these items, don’t hesitate to reach out to the Admissions office at admissions@puc.edu or through our 800 number at (800) 862-7080, option 2. Our team of counselors is happy to help!

You’re Accepted to PUC – Now What?

Holiday 2

Christmas break is the perfect time to work on your college applications and everything you need to do to be ready for college next year. If you’re an accepted student to PUC, you can look at your personal site for a checklist to keep you on track. The checklist is located on the right-hand side of the home screen. For parents or students still working on their PUC application, you can use our helpful High School Senior Checklist

For accepted students, here are the four most important things you can do for PUC right now:

  1. Pay your enrollment fee & fill out a housing form. All students will need to pay a $200 enrollment fee before registering for classes, as well as submit a housing form. You can do both at puc.edu/reserve. Paying the fee before May 1 means $100 of it will be put towards your Fall 2016 tuition bill!
  2. Apply for PUC scholarships. Our scholarship deadline isn’t until March 2, so there’s plenty of time to write those essays! See a list of what we offer incoming freshmen at puc.edu/scholarships.
  3. Fill out a PUC Financial Aid Application. All students are required to submit a PUC Financial Aid Application, which can be found at puc.edu/reserve. This information, along with your FAFSA, is used by the Student Finance office to put together a financial estimate where you can see how much per month it would cost you to attend PUC. It’s very helpful! If you have any finance-related questions, the Student Finance office can be reached at studentfinance@puc.edu or at 800.862.7080 option 1.
  4. Register for classes. Registration for Fall 2016 doesn’t start until April, but if you let your Enrollment Counselor know what you’re planning on studying, they can put together a sample class schedule for you so you can see what classes you might end up taking next fall.
