Guest & Parents of New Students

What should I attend?

At Spring Registration, we have programmed our sessions with parents and guests in mind. This will be the main opportunity for parents and guests of incoming students to have their questions answered and to hear helpful information. You are encouraged to attend all of the sessions at Spring Registration. As the event draws closer, a sample schedule will be available to reference session titles.

What information will be covered?

Our hope is that Spring Registration will provide answers to every question that you or your student may have about CBU. We will have designated sessions for Academic Majors, Financial Aid, Student Accounts, University life and expectations, and resources available to students. There will also be time to visit offices on campus to handle University business. As the event draws closer, a sample schedule will be available to reference session titles.

Yes! Offices will be open throughout Spring Registration, and can be visited at any time during the day.
