Other Things to Consider

[1] Apply for on-campus housing
If you plan to live on campus this semester, please start by submitting your housing application as soon as possible, found on the housing website.

[2] Apply for financial aid
If you plan to receive financial aid and have not completed your FAFSA, you will need to apply as soon as possible. Please visit the Financial Aid website for additional information.

[3] Submit your AP (Advanced Placement) score reports
If you have received credit from an AP exam, this credit does not automatically transfer. You must have the score report sent to UW-Eau Claire (from ETS) or bring your copy of the official score report to the Academic Testing Office, 2100 Vicki Lord Larson Hall. Since this will affect your registration appointment time, you should do this as soon as possible.

[4] View required textbooks
UW-Eau Claire has a great textbook rental program! After you've registered, you can access your textbook list in CampS. From your Student Center, click "Class Schedule" and then "Textbook Summary" for the full list. The Bookstore is located in 130 Davies Center.

[5] Parking on campus
There are several parking options available to students. Please visit the Parking website for more information.
