Fall 2020 Checklist for Returning Undergrads

In light of COVID-19, we will be doing things a bit differently prior to the beginning of the year. All students will be required to complete an online orientation, and students attending the Forest Grove Campus in person also will need to complete a drive-through check-in process when they first arrive on campus. Please review the following information for returning Forest Grove undergraduate students and complete this checklist:

□  Sign Up for Your Move-in/Check-in Appointment
□  Complete Online Orientation
Take the Pre-Arrival COVID-19 Mini-Course
□ Order Your Student ID | New Students Only
Order Your Books
Submit Your Parking Application
Monitor Your Symptoms

Find more information at pacificu.edu/orientation. If you have any questions, please contact us at orientation@pacificu.edu.

Sign Up for Your Move-in/Check-In Appointment

All students who will be on campus are required to complete a pre-scheduled drive-through check-in process.

At this check-in, you will be required to fill out paperwork specific to your arrival and COVID-19. You also will receive your materials, parking permits, pre-ordered textbooks and a wellness kit.

If you are living on campus this fall, you will sign up for a two-hour move-in time period. Your check-in will take place 30 minutes prior to your move-in appointment. Move-in appointments for returning students are available Aug. 23-25 or Aug. 29-30. (Early arrival move-in appointments are available with pre-authorization only.)
Sign Up for Move-in/Check-in | Find Student & Family Move-in Schedules

If you are a commuter student, living off campus but attending the Forest Grove Campus, sign up for a check-in appointment Aug. 23-30, or on Aug. 31, if you do not need to be on campus prior to the first day of classes.

If you are studying remotely, you do not need to check in but will be required to participate in the online orientation Aug. 20 or 21.
Sign Up for Remote Learner Orientation

If you are traveling from Hawai‘i on a late-night flight and traveling alone, do not sign up for a move-in time block. Your arrangements have been made through the Hawai‘i Outreach and Programming Office.

Complete Online Orientation

All students also will need to complete a two-part orientation — or re-orientation — to campus. The real-time portion of the re-orientation will take place in person or via Zoom as part of your check-in or move-in. The online component is now available on Moodle.
