When will I get my CLASS SCHEDULE?
Etown builds your fall schedule for you based on the forms you complete in June (through Jayweb, our campus system). During the month of June, you'll share information with us that helps us to build your fall schedule. You will also rank your First Year Seminar choices at this time.
You will receive your fall schedule at summer new student orientation. Your First Year Seminar faculty member (who will be your academic advisor the first semester) will meet with you to review your schedule. If you do not attend summer new student orientation, then we will mail your fall schedule to you the following week.
For students starting in January, you will receive an email from the Registration & Records office with details on registration and your academic advisor. You will register for classes beginning in November.
When can I buy my TEXTBOOKS?
Anytime after you get your schedule! Go to the College Store's Textbook website for more information.
What are your RESIDENCE HALLS like?

When do I find out about my HOUSING ASSIGNMENT?
After you deposit, you will receive an email with information about completing our housing agreement and questionnaire. If you have a roommate in mind, you can list that person on the questionnaire. If you need to make changes to your completed questionnaire, please email email@example.com. During the first week of August, you will receive an email informing you that your housing assignment and roommate are listed on JayWeb. You can find out more details on the Office of Community Living's website.

What are my options for eating on campus and MEAL PLANS?
Enjoying the College's delicious food is definitely a benefit of our campus. Incoming residential students are automatically assigned the gold meal plan.

You can make changes to the meal plan through the first two weeks of the semester. Learn more about meal plans and dining options at Dining Services' website.
