Office of the Registrar
Classes begin Monday, August 23!
All students are invited to attend. Student leaders are required to attend to be commissioned into their campus leadership vocations.
All students are invited to attend this convocation that officially opens the undergraduate academic year. New students, freshmen and transfers, are required to attend as they will be commissioned into their vocation as students.
Below is some important information you will need as you prepare for your return to campus.
Pay special attention to checking and clearing any holds you may have before you return to school.
Returning students must clear holds placed on their student records due to outstanding tuition payments, missing financial aid paperwork, or missing health information. Students with holds will not be permitted to move into student housing, make changes to class schedules, or register for the next semester. Additionally, students with unresolved holds after the first week of school risk having classes removed from their fall schedule by the Registrar’s office.
Steps to check and clear holds:
If a hold remains on your account when you arrive on campus, plan to visit the office responsible for the hold before moving into student housing or attending classes.
Office hours are M-F 8:00am – 4:30pm
MyRecords is CUI’s online service for students.

Residence Hall Move-in: Check-In dates and times will be individually assigned. Freshman and Transfer students will move in on the first day of SOAR, August 20th between 8am and 11:30am. Check-In for all continuing students is on Sunday, August 22nd. Check-in dates and times will be sent to your eagles email by July 16th.
Can I move in early?
Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate early move-ins due to cleaning and inspections that occur before residents return to campus. Exceptions to this rule would be students involved in University-approved groups or organizations that have written approval from the Office of Residential Education and Services.
When will I find out where I am assigned and who my roommate(s) will be?
We will place you in a housing assignment with other students using the Housing Placement Survey section of your Housing Application and your other designated housing preferences to find the best fit available for you. After you have been placed in a housing assignment, we will do our best to notify you regarding your housing details via your Eagles email by the 16th of July.
What if I have a disagreement with my roommate and do not get along?
You should attempt to work out the problem by talking with your roommate directly. If residents are unable to agree or come up with a workable solution, we encourage you to contact your RA for assistance. Resident Directors will become involved when necessary, and in all cases in which a room change request has been submitted (due to roommate conflict). Room changes will be made on a space-available basis and are not guaranteed to occur. The dissatisfied roommate is the one who is responsible for moving.
Who is required to live on campus?
Those students who are 21 years of age or older at the start of SOAR in August are not required to live on campus. Students who are 20 years of age or younger at the start of SOAR in August are required to live on campus. See the Academic Calendar for SOAR dates. Students who are 20 years of age or younger who desire to live off-campus must submit an Off-Campus Housing Appeal form.
What if I lose my room key?
Report any lost keys to the Office of Residential Education and Services as soon as possible. Residents who lose keys will be charged a $75 fine for the re-key which will be ordered for your housing assignment to ensure you and your roommate/suite-mates' security.
How do I put in a maintenance request?
Any maintenance or furniture work orders can be submitted by emailing [email protected] directly. Your resident director will manage and coordinate your request.
How do I report a policy violation?
If you are aware of a policy violation you can call the RA on-duty phone (949) 307- 6216 and you will be assisted accordingly. If there is an emergency please call Campus Safety at 949-214-3000. You are always encouraged to contact your assigned hall RA for assistance as needed.
