When is New Student Orientation?

Orientation typically takes place in the summer shortly before the start of classes. You will receive an invitation to orientation during the summer. At orientation you will have the opportunity to meet faculty, staff, administrators, and second-year students, and receive important information about your program. You will also receive instructions on how to set up your email account and obtain your Student ID card.

How often do classes meet and how long are the semesters?

New students start in the fall semester, and it begins in early September. Fall and spring semesters are 14 weeks long. Regular four-unit classes meet once a week for three hours, for 14 weeks. Two-unit classes meet once a week for three hours, for only 7 weeks. These 2 unit courses may meet in the first seven weeks of the 14 week semester (Module I) or in the last seven weeks of the 14 week semester (Module II).

The FE Program also offers classes during the summer in two, seven-week terms. Summer Semester I (Module I) begins in mid-May and Summer Semester II (Module II) begins in mid-July. Because the summer semesters are only seven weeks long, four-unit classes meet twice a week for three hours.

How can I access e-mail and internet resources?

Every student receives a campus e-mail address.  It usually follows this format: firstname.lastname@cgu.edu. You will be issued a cgu email account before orientation and receive your user name and password to log on to the CGU computer network. If you have technical problems, please contact helpdesk located in ACB 109 or you can visit one of the student labs for assistance. Please make sure to have your student ID card with you.

Where do I get a parking permit?

If you are planning to park your car on campus, please visit the Campus Safety office (located in Baxter Hall on the Scripps College campus, off of Eleventh and Dartmouth) to receive a FREE parking permit. You will need to bring your driver's license, CGU I.D. card, and your car registration. Campus Safety will not issue a parking permit without a valid I.D. card.

Where do I purchase textbooks?

You are responsible for purchasing your own textbooks, case packets and/or course packs, and other supplemental documents.  You can purchase most of your required materials at the Huntley Bookstore, which is located on campus at the corner of Dartmouth and Eighth Street

Of course you are free to purchase your textbooks wherever you like, but be sure that you purchase your books in a timely manner because in many cases there is assigned reading before the first day of classes.
