Get Ready...

Below are actions you may take once you are signed up for a Step Ahead Orientation event. Prior to attending, please complete the following tasks:

Housing Application: Students that plan to live on campus must complete an online housing application. Students will have access to complete the online application within two business days after being accepted to CBU.

Commuter Student Data Sheet: This form is required from every student who does not plan to live on campus. CBU generally requires traditional, single students under twenty-one yeas of age, or any student that receives institutional aid in excess of $8,500 per academic year, to live on campus. Exceptions are made for those living with parents, legal guardians, or approved relatives, upon verification of residency. Please complete and submit the commuter student data sheet to verify important information in your student account. An official, signed copy will be required when you arrive at Step Ahead Orientation to confirm your decision.

Student/Parent Contact Information: Every student must complete this form. The information is for official CBU purposes only and will not be distributed. Complete and submit the student/parent contact information form so we can be better equipped to serve you during your time at CBU.

Health Insurance is required for all Traditional Undergraduate students at CBU enrolled in 7 units or more. Students are automatically charged for and enrolled on the medical insurance provided through United Healthcare Student Resources. Students who have their own insurance or are covered through their parents can choose to "opt out" of the student insurance plan by completing the online waiver located here. On the webpage, look under "Student Access" and click on "Student Waive." You will be required to create an account and then will be directed to the waiver form. The waiver will be available on May 11, 2015 and must be completed prior to September 22, 2015. To view benefits and detailed information on the student insurance provided through CBU, click here.
