AFTER ADMISSION: NEXT STEPS FOR FALL 2014

WELCOME TO MANOR COLLEGE
Now that you have been admitted, there are several important next steps that you need to take to be ready for the start of classes.  To help you organize these steps, please follow the checklist below.

SEND IN YOUR DEPOSIT FOR PRIORITY REGISTRATION!
Secure your place at Manor by mailing your $100 deposit check or money order together with your Confirmation of Enrollment Form.  To assure that we have enough spaces for all admitted students, your space may be given to another student if we do not receive your deposit within the next two weeks.  We can also take a credit card over the phone.


TURN IN OFFICIAL FINAL HIGH SCHOOL TRANSCRIPTS SHOWING GRADUATION
Students who are admitted to the college directly from high school are required to submit official final high school transcripts showing all coursework and graduation from high school. Please mail them or walk them into the admissions processing office.

APPLY FOR ON CAMPUS HOUSING
If you plan to live on campus an additional $100 housing deposit is required.  We have included the housing application in this packet and space is limited, so please send the housing deposit as soon as possible to receive maximum consideration for a space.  For convenience, you can send your Confirmation of Enrollment Form, enrollment deposit, and housing deposit together with a single check for $200 ($100 each for enrollment and housing deposits).  Make your check payable to Manor College.  We can also take a credit card over the phone.

APPLY FOR FINANCIAL AID AND SCHOLARSHIPS
After January 1st, file the 2014-2015 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid), online at www.fafsa.ed.gov, to apply for financial aid.  Enter the Manor College FAFSA Code, 003294, on the application.  We will receive your results electronically and create a customized financial aid package to help you afford your outstanding Manor education.  You are automatically considered for scholarships.

TURN IN YOUR COMPLETED MEDICAL FORM
Complete and return your enclosed Medical Form as soon as possible.  This assures you and your classmates have received all state-required immunizations and are ready for a healthy year at school.

REGISTER FOR COLLEGE PLACEMENT TESTING
All new students must complete placement tests to make sure you are in the right English, math and college reading courses.  Testing dates and more information can be found on the placement page.  For more information or questions about placement testing, contact the Learning Center at (215) 885-2360 x305.

ATTEND A REGISTRATION DAY TO SELECT YOUR FALL CLASSES
Meet with an academic advisor, review your placement test scores and select your fall classes.  To be invited, you must have a Confirmation of Enrollment Form and paid enrollment deposit on file.  Registration events begin in February for fall courses.

ATTEND NEW STUDENT ORIENTATION
Get the 411 on being a Manor student.  Meet your fellow new students and learn how to make the most of your Manor degree.  New Student Orientation provides you and your parents/family with important information on: Student ID’s, Financial Aid, Counseling Services, the Learning Center, Athletics, Campus Clubs and Organizations, the Chapel and Campus Ministry.  This event is held in late August.

TRANSFER ANY PREVIOUS COLLEGE CREDIT
Submit AP and IB scores to the Office of Admissions, or if you have taken college-level courses for credit, send in official college transcripts of any prior college coursework, as we may grant academic credit, after review by Academic Affairs.

YOUR MANOR EMAIL
It is important you check your Manor email on a regular basis.  Information about upcoming events, student secured information, course registration and updates, and financial aid information will be sent to your Manor email.  You will need to contact the college through this email address for any official correspondence.  Information about this email address can be found at: http://www.manor.edu/student-life/student-services/student-accounts.php

EMERGENCY TEXT MESSAGING SYSTEM
Manor College has implemented a Text Message Emergency Alert System, which will allow subscribers to receive emergency or weather-related alerts instantly through their cell phones, PDAs or through email.  The system will only be used to immediately alert the Manor community to an emergency situation or to changes to the class schedule due to inclement weather. There is no cost to the subscriber other than any regular fees associated with text messaging services. Sign up here.
