Important First Steps

Please use this checklist to find and complete the required forms to ensure a smooth transition to Academic and Student Life at the College. These forms are required by June 1st!

Summer ARCH (Academic Registration and Creative Horizons)

While you are on campus in June, you will meet with faculty and staff who will help you begin to construct an academic plan, select and register for classes for the Fall Semester.  Parents are invited to attend and become more familiar with the goals of a Wooster education, learn about campus resources, and meet with faculty and staff advisers.

If there are any questions, please email ARCH.
