You're Registered... Now What?

Once you have registered for classes, use this list to ensure that you are ready for your first semester at Lewis-Clark State College: 

 

First Semester Checklist

 

Make sure you know the name of your advisor and how to reach him/her (hint: Warrior Web “My Profile and Advising Information”)

 

Arrange for delivery of your final high school transcripts, college transcripts, and/or AP scores to LCSC.

 

Find out what you will need to pay (tuition, fees, room, board) and when it is due (hint: day five of each semester). Statements are posted to WarriorWeb in July (fall) or January (spring).

 

Touch base with the Financial Aid Office – Let them know you have registered for classes. Make sure you have submitted any necessary documents they may need. 

 

Check your LCMail account regularly. You may receive messages from a variety of LCSC offices, even before classes begin. Respond to messages you receive.

 

If you need to provide documentation of health insurance, be sure to take care of this early.

 

Arrange housing far in advance of the start of school. If you are on a waitlist, consider finding an alternative option as a backup plan.

 

Get Microsoft Office for free! Go to the following website for information: /it/for-students/

 

Plan to attend Orientation. You don’t want to miss this event where you will meet your classmates, learn about LCSC policies and processes, and acclimate to campus.

 

Purchase all required books and supplies before classes begin. Wait until you start classes to buy optional supplies…you will find out what you need once you attend each class.

 

 Planning to work while in college? There are employment opportunities both off and on campus for students. Check with the Student Employment and Career Center for more information!

 

Print out your class schedule during the week before you start classes (up to that point, locations may still change). Go to your WarriorWeb Student menu, then My Class Schedule.

 

Once you arrive on campus, practice “walking your schedule” so you know how to get from one point to the next.

 

Get lots of rest before your first week of school – it is usually exhausting!
