When you arrive on campus, parking will be available next to the Ellender Memorial Library or Guidry Football Stadium.

Check in will begin promptly at 8:15am in Peltier Auditorium. The program will begin at 8:30 am SHARP. When you arrive at Peltier, you can find your materials at your color group table.  If your parents are attending the parent program, they will be escorted to Le Bijou Theater in the Student Union. Due to space limitations, parents can not attend the student program.

The program will end at approximately 5:00pm. Lunch will be provided.

You will need a picture ID in order to get your Colonel Card. You will also need to know your license plate number for your parking decal.

All students should have either completed a Housing Application if living on campus, or a Housing Exemption form if living at home.

If you have not completed the FAFSA, it is time to do so! You can check your Banner Account to check your status.

We will see you soon!
