It’s time to make you an Arrow.
A lot has changed this summer, but one thing that hasn't changed is that Ursuline College is fully committed to creating a safe & welcoming experience for all new students joining us this fall.
Information & Updates for Fall 2021 Arrows
Ready to officially become an Arrow? Submit your deposit! Ursuline’s deposit deadline is May 1st. After May 1st, deposits will be accepted as space allows but are no longer refundable.
Your deposit kicks off your access to inside Ursuline information. You will get your Ursuline email, hear about Academic Advising so you can schedule classes for the fall, learn about housing options, be invited to incoming-student-only events to meet your future classmates, and more!
Deposits can be submitted at www.ursuline.edu/deposit. For students living on-campus, the deposit fee is $200.00. For commuters, the deposit fee is $100.00. Once you enroll, your deposit fee is credited to your Ursuline account and will become a credit on your first invoice. If your deposit fee creates an undue burden for your family, please contact your Admission Counselor to discuss alternatives.
Once you deposit your Ursuline student account will be created, including your Ursuline student email! Login instructions will be emailed to you by Ursuline’s IT department, approximately 48 hours after your deposit is processed. While the Admission Office will be primarily communicating to you using your personal email account, you will find important campus updates and Ursuline insider-information in your Ursuline email. Over the summer, be sure to check both accounts.
In order to create your Ursuline Student ID, we need your photo! Email your headshot to the Student Service Center. Student IDs will be distributed during Fall Orientation. Don't worry, these photos do not need to be perfect! Photos are only about the size of a postage stamp on your Student ID.
The details for your best picture:
All of Ursuline’s Academic Orientations have moved to a new virtual format. The information covered during Academic Orientation will be included in our new New Student Online Experience (NSOE) and your academic advising meeting will be arranged between you and your advisor to set up your course schedule.
Please complete the Pre-Advising Worksheet that was emailed to you. Completion of this form will grant you access to the NSOE and your advisor will be able to reach out to you to set up your advising appointment.
Academic Advising Meetings will happen virtually. After you have completed the appropriate form, your advisor will reach out to you via email to schedule a meeting. These meetings may happen over the phone, via Zoom or in another method determined between the two of you.
After you complete your required forms, a copy of your pre-advising responses will be emailed to you so that you have a copy of what was shared with your academic advisor. The two of you will use this information to help frame your conversation about your academic plans and setting your class schedule for the fall. Additionally, be sure to submit an updated copy of your transcripts, or Advanced Placement (AP) exam results to the Processing Center (firstname.lastname@example.org) so that your advisor has the most up-to-date information.
Last but not least, bring your questions! This is the perfect opportunity to talk more about your major and any goals you may have for your time at Ursuline (and beyond!).
The New Student Online Experience (NSOE) is your virtual introduction to Ursuline College. This online course will serve as a resource to all things Ursuline. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself referencing the NSOE all throughout your first year (and second year… and third year…).
The NSOE covers relevant information to a successful start at Ursuline. Completion of the NSOE is required for all incoming students and a certificate of completion is required to begin classes. The course will take about 2.5 hours to complete but it is designed to be viewed in pieces. No need to do everything all at once! The beginning portion can be completed at any time, but the second half of the NSOE is design for after your fall schedule has been finalized with your academic advisor. You can’t look up what books you need to buy if you don’t know what classes you are taking!
As a resident student, you’ll quickly come to appreciate all of the reasons that residence hall living enhances your college experience. Resident students access outstanding leadership opportunities, live in proximity to each other, their professors, and the plethora of campus resources available to support your success at Ursuline. Socially, the Ursuline atmosphere is empowering and engaging. You’ll be right in the middle of all the excitement!
As your first semester approaches, you will receive additional information from us detailing your next steps: Academic Orientation dates occur in advance of your start term and you’ll begin to make friends and walk away with your first semester course schedule in hand.
Additionally, your housing contract, roommate survey, and more from the Residence Life and Housing Office will be sent to you after your housing status has been assessed. This review happens closer to when you'll begin classes and you will be notified of housing availability via email. In order to begin the housing process, you must submit your deposit before the Priority Housing Deadline of July 1, 2021.
For more information about living on campus, visit ursuline.edu/student-life.
Over the summer you will also want to finalize your financial aid plans. Be sure that Ursuline has recieved your FAFSA and that you have reviewed your financial aid offer. Complete any additional paperwork requested on your offer (extra copies can be found here) and complete your entrance loan counseling if needed. Your first invoice will be mailed to your in July or after your classes are scheduled, whichever comes first.
Join our admitted-students-only Instagram account for important updates and invites to upcoming social events throughout the summer. While we may not be able to see you in person, you won't miss out on the chance to meet other incoming students!
