First, enroll . . .
Complete your enrollment response through the applicant portal by the deadline given. Once you have responded, you'll receive your Camel user name and password to access CamelWeb, our internal campus web system. This is where you will find the Online Enrollment Guide, which includes all the forms you will need to complete before beginning joining us in the fall. Each form has its own start date and deadline. You'll want to pay close attention so you don't miss out on anything.
