Step 4: Don't Forget

Resources

  • Take a campus tour
  • New International Student Orientation
  • Be sure to access (and print if necessary) the pre-departure check list
  • For a global learning experience, check out the Global Learning Community on campus
  • Get your student ID card by visiting the I.D. office, Nigh University Center, Room 128.
  • Get your UCO Parking Decal; all vehicles parking on campus, other than in pay-to-park lots, must purchase an appropriate decal.
  • Consider living on campus (optional but strongly encouraged)
  • If you prefer to live off campus, consider these off campus options
  • Log in to your UCONNECT account. This web portal will be your primary method for:
    • Enrolling
    • Checking your UCO email
    • Viewing a class schedule
    • Checking your grades
    • Paying for classes
    • Sign up for housing & dining options
    • Staying informed regarding important UCO news & updates
  • If you have any deficiencies in Math, English or Reading (scoring an 18 sub-score or below in any of these areas of the ACT test), you will need to speak to your academic advisor about remediating these deficiencies.
  • Buy your textbooks. Once you are enrolled, you are strongly recommended to purchase your books prior to the first day of class. You may purchase your books from the university bookstore (Nigh university Center, Room 210) or through book stores surrounding campus.
  • Learn more about getting involved on campus. Make plans to attend New International Student Orientation and New Student/Broncho Orientation.
  • In addition to the orientation program, be sure to take advantage of all the helpful information available (oh, and FREE stuff too!) during Stampede Week.
  • If you're looking for a part-time job, consider applying for an on-campus job. Student positions range all over campus, and most offices/departments may offer more flexibility to your work schedule than an off-campus job.
  • Here is a checklist from the International Office to make sure you have everything you need for acceptance, including Proof of English Proficiency.
  • If you require special needs and/or accommodations to meet any disability, contact the Office of Disability Support Services.
