How to Apply and/or Enroll for a Fall 2018 Community?

Choose a few communities that interest you (first choice, plus a couple of alternatives in case your first choice is full).

In general, enrollment in First-Year Communities is first-come, first-served. The specific process varies by kind of community, as explained below.

Students who apply by May the 7th will have priority consideration for housing Living-Learning and Theme Communities. If interested in the Living Learning Communities and/or Theme Communities, you must also complete the Housing Application (also due May 7th).

The Housing Application, as well as LLC and Theme Community application information, will be available in early April.

The First-Year Community administrative team will review the First-Year Community Applications and Housing Applications to determine placements in housing Communities. You will be informed of which Living-Learning Community or Theme Community you are placed in. For Living-Learning Communities, the Registrar’s Office will enroll you in the courses before Island View Orientation. You will have a chance to learn more about your housing Community at Island View Orientation.

For the STEM Success Integrative Learning Community, open to students with STEM majors or those considering a STEM major, you will need to complete the Intent to Participate Form and submit it by 5:00 pm on June 29, 2018. Forms will be reviewed on a rolling basis. You will be informed of your acceptance via email.

For the remaining non-residential Learning Communities (Multicultural, International, Integrative and Community Engagement), you will enroll yourself (the two courses are co-requisites) at the same time that you enroll for your other classes when registration opens on July 6th. Again, this is first-come, first-served. The First-Year Community Application informs us of your interest, which is helpful for our planning process for Island View Orientation.

NOTE: The courses for Living-Learning Communities and Learning Communities are not your full schedule of classes. You will have the opportunity to round out your schedule during Island View Orientation to be ready for your enrollment appointment on July 6th.
