▾ Look at your Asbury Checklist often!

Your online Asbury Checklist updates in real time to tell you what we still need you to do, so keep an eye on it! Go to asbury.edu/asburychecklist and log in using your Asbury application credentials:

  • The email address and password you used to fill out Asbury's online application OR
  • The email address and password you used to set up your Asbury Checklist account after submitting your application through Common App or another outside website

▾ Check your new Asbury email address regularly!

You will start receiving information at your new Asbury email address from various offices around campus, so be sure to check it regularly. Click here for instructions on setting up your Asbury email address. To log in, go to asbury.edu/my and click on "Asbury Email".

▾ Finalize your financial aid

If you haven't accepted your financial aid offer yet, do that now in the Asbury Portal, our online portal for class registration, financial aid and more. You can find the Asbury Portal at My Asbury (asbury.edu/my) and log in to the Portal with your Asbury email address and password. Click here for more instructions on the Asbury Portal.

If you have accepted your offer, don't forget to sign the promissory note and complete your entrance counseling for any loans you will receive. You can get more information from the Financial Aid Office.

▾ Submit your Housing Preference Form (on and off campus)

Submit your Housing Preference Form by May 1. For students living on campus, this allows the Housing Office to use your residence hall and roommate preferences as they make housing assignments for the new school year, and for students planning to live off campus, this submits your petition to live off campus.

Deposited after May 1? Submit the Housing Preference Form ASAP so the Housing Office can work with you to provide the best housing option.

Where to find it: Access the Housing Preference Form through the Asbury Checklist at asbury.edu/asburychecklist. Log in with the (non-Asbury) email address and password you used to create your Asbury application/Checklist account. If you applied through Common App and haven't created an Asbury Checklist account, click here to create one and follow the instructions that will be emailed to you.

▾ Submit your Prior Credit Form

The Prior Credit Form lets you help us create the best possible first semester schedule for you. Fill it out by May 1 with all the credit you intend to transfer to Asbury - including any AP credit taken in high school - so the Registrar's office can verify your transferred credit before building your first class schedule.

Deposited after May 1? Fill out the Prior Credit Form ASAP to give the Registrar's office the best chance at building a great schedule for you!

▾ Connect with your new class on social media

Join the Facebook group for your class to connect with your new classmates. The Facebook group opens up around the end of March each year, and the invitation to join will be sent to your non-Asbury email address - the same address you use to log in to your Asbury application/Checklist account.

You can also follow Asbury University on Facebook and Instagram to stay up-to-date with the latest happenings on and around campus.

▾ Provide your Health Services information

Beginning in the middle of April, provide your medical information to the health services clinic in the Center for Wholeness and Wellness. Submit the Health History Form online - including copies of your health insurance card and immunization record - to prepare the clinic for your arrival on campus. Please note that you may need to schedule an appointment with your doctor to get the most updated information.

Where to find it: Access your Health History Form and upload documentation through your Asbury Checklist at asbury.edu/asburychecklist. Log in with the (non-Asbury) email address and password you used to create your Asbury application/Checklist account.

Sign up for Archways, an optional - but highly recommended - five day experience prior to Welcome Week, designed by our Center for Adventure Leadership staff to prepare you for life at Asbury while creating new bonds of friendship before you officially move on campus. No prior hiking, camping or rock climbing experience is necessary.

Where to find it: Learn more and sign up here or through your Asbury Checklist at asbury.edu/asburychecklist. (Log in with your non-Asbury email address and password.)

▾ Review your fall class schedule

The Registrar's office will begin creating fall schedules for the new incoming class in mid-May, using your official transcripts, official test score reports and Prior Credit Form to create the best possible class schedule for you. Once the schedule has been posted, you will be notified by email and will be able to log in, view your schedule and make any necessary changes. Please be aware that the notification may be sent to your new Asbury email address.

Where to find it: Your class schedule will be posted in the Asbury Student Portal, our online portal for class registration, financial aid and more. You can find the Asbury Portal and your Asbury email account at My Asbury (asbury.edu/my) and log in to the Portal with your Asbury email address and password. Click here for help accessing your Asbury email address and here for help with the Portal.

▾ Send us your final official transcripts and test scores

Final copies of your official transcripts and test scores are required once all of the grades have been posted for your most recent semester of school. Final official transcripts from high school must include the graduation date, including month, day and year. Official test scores are required for class placement purposes if we have not already received them.

Official transcripts from a high school can be sent by mail from the school or ordered through Parchment. Official transcripts from a college/university can be sent by mail from the institution or electronically through getmytranscripts.org. Homeschool transcripts can be emailed from the parent email address if they have been signed.

Final official transcripts must be sent directly from the school to Asbury's Admissions Office. Transcripts that are given to the student and then delivered to Asbury will not be counted as official. Review the items on your Asbury Checklist after May 1 to see if we still need a final official transcript for your record.

Official test scores, if needed, must be sent directly from the testing agency (ACT, SAT or CLT) to Asbury's Admissions Office. Review the items on your Asbury Checklist to see if we need you to order official test scores.

▾ Select your meal plan, payment plan, and more!

A series of actions that we call Financial Registration is required of every Asbury student for each semester in which they are enrolled. Financial Registration includes signing up for your meal plan, selecting a payment plan and registering your car to receive a parking permit. Financial Registration is available beginning around the middle of June OR 1-2 weeks after your fall class schedule has been posted.

Where to find it: To complete Financial Registration, log in to the Asbury Portal with your Asbury email address and password. You can find the Portal and your email account at My Asbury (asbury.edu/my).

▾ Review your housing and roommate assignment

Your residence hall and roommate for your first year at Asbury are assigned by the Housing Office based on your submitted Housing Preference Form. Once assignments are complete--usually in early July--the information will be posted to your Asbury Portal account and you will be notified by email. Please be aware that the notification may go to your new Asbury email address.

Where to find it: To view your housing and roommate assignment, log in to the Asbury Portal, found at My Asbury. Use your Asbury email address and password to log in.
