Welcome back to the University of Lynchburg! To make your transition back to Lynchburg as smooth as possible, there are seven steps you will need to complete.
Step 1: Notify the University of Lynchburg of Your Intent to Return
Notify Jonathan Fries at email@example.com if you are returning from your leave of absences by December 15 if you plan to return in the Spring semester or by July 1st if you plan to return in the Fall semester.
Step 2: Contact the Business Office
Contact the business office to submit your enrollment deposit for the semester you wish to return, if you have not already done so and to set-up any billing and payment information. For questions contact the business office at 434.544.8213.
Step 3: Complete Financial Aid Paperwork
Complete any necessary financial aid paperwork, including your FAFSA. If you have questions in regards to financial aid, contact the financial aid office at 434.544.8228 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 4: Submit Your Final Transcripts to the Registrar’s Office
If you took classes at another institution while you were on your leave of absence, you need to submit those final transcripts to the registrar’s office. Once they receive them, they will conduct a credit evaluation of your transcripts. For questions contact the registrar’s office at email@example.com.
Step 5: Contact Your Academic Advisor
You should contact your advisor to discuss your class schedule.
Before you meet with your advisor:
- If you have a transfer credit evaluation, review it and have it with you. You should receive this from the registrar’s office.
- Become familiar with the academic catalog and the course requirements for the major(s) in which you are interested.
- Come prepared with any questions you may have regarding your major, career interests, and internships.
In addition to helping you plan your schedule, your advisor can:
- Help you create a long-term plan for graduation
- Tell you about major-specific clubs, organizations, and other opportunities
- Advise you about opportunities for internships, research, or study abroad programs
- Help you explore post-graduate education and career opportunities
If you have not contacted your academic advisor, or if you are unsure of who your advisor is, please contact Heidi Koring, Director of Academic Advising. You can reach Heidi Koring by phone at 434.544.8339 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Step 6: Request Housing
If you will be living on campus, request a housing assignment as described below. Remember that placements are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
Please call the Office of Housing and Residence Life at 434.544.8320 to discuss your housing as soon as possible!
Step 7: Check-in to the University
All returning students must check in to the University before they attend classes. This is where you will get your student ID, obtain your parking pass, get the keys to your room if you are living on campus, and take care of all other campus business. (If you need a parking pass, please bring your driver’s license, proof of insurance, and car registration with you when you come to check-in!)
Regularly check your University email account for more information about dates for check-in and about your return to the University.
