You'll be checking off many enrollment tasks during the summer, but some are important to complete early. To make your life a little easier, we’ve divided your tasks into things to do now, next and later.
While you'll receive more information about preparing for Carnegie Mellon over the summer, you can check out a full list of the recommended and required tasks to complete.
Create Your Andrew Account
We're also creating your Andrew Account right now! You will receive an email from email@example.com with the subject line "Action Required: Your Andrew userID Has Been Created".
The email will provide instructions on how to receive your Andrew userID, set a password and enroll in two-factor authentication (2fa) with DUO, Carnegie Mellon’s multi-factor authentication service provider. This email will be sent a week after submitting your enrollment deposit. Please be sure to check your spam folder in the event the email does not appear in your inbox.
This is one of those to-do tasks that you’ll want to take care of right away. You will need your Andrew ID and password to apply for university housing, register for classes, submit your health history and immunization forms, enroll in student health insurance and provide you with access to the university's computing services, such as SIO, computing clusters and your Andrew email account.
Technical issues? Questions about your Andrew Account or the First Pass process? Email Computing Services (@email).
Complete Housing and Dining Forms
Once you create your Andrew Account, you can complete the Housing Application & License Agreement and the Meal Plan Enrollment Form through the Housing and Dining Portal. These forms will become available on or after April 1 and are due by May 31.
Complete the Parent/Family Information Form
Now that you're enrolled, complete the Parent/Family Information Form by May 31 so that you and your parents, guardians or other family members can receive updates about campus events and initiatives.
Family and parents are valued members of our Carnegie Mellon community. Learn more about how your parents, guardians and family members can stay in the know with you while you're at CMU.
Manage Your Student Identity
Being addressed accurately on campus is critical to a sense of belonging. Carnegie Mellon offers data services that enable students to manage their identities in a number of ways, including selecting a preferred first name and storing pronouns.
Students who wish to designate a preferred first name can do so using Student Information Online (SIO). Once you set a preferred name, it will appear internally to academic and administrative advisors, as well as on your ID card. Setting your preferred name won't replace your official name where it is legally required. You can also manage other aspects of your identity, such as your pronouns, the pronunciation of your name, and your race and ethnicity in SIO.
Newly enrolled students can begin accessing Student Information Online (SIO) after May 16.
As a first-year student, you’ll kick off your Carnegie Mellon experience with the First-Year Orientation program. It’s designed for the meet-new-friends, make-some-memories and soak-up-the-culture kind of mind. Upperclass student leaders help plan and present the program, so you can look forward to a fun and helpful introduction to university life.
