First-Year Student Registration
Who will I meet before Orientation?
There will be many members of our campus community connecting with you! First in touch will be the Student Orientation Staff (SOS), who are current students that will serve as your group facilitator during Orientation. You will also meet your First-Year academic advisor, many campus staff members, and your future classmates! We will be in touch!
What if I need academic support?
In order to request academic accommodations, students who have a documented disability should supply the Academic Support Center with appropriate documentation. Documentation should be recent and comprehensive. If you have a disability and need further information on what constitutes comprehensive documentation, or if you would like to make an appointment to discuss accommodations, please contact Gerry Volpe in the Academic Support Center via phone (802) 468-1428, fax (802) 468-1205, or email. Information regarding disabilities may also be found on their website.
Will I need to take placement exams/tests?
Some international students may need English language assessment during orientation. Otherwise, students are not required to complete assessments for introductory course selection. Faculty assessment of your admissions information and self-selection are used to determine the best fit courses. If you are concerned about future assessments and need testing accommodations, please contact the Coordinator of Disability Services via phone (802) 468-1428 or email.
When will I get my Castleton ID?
When you enroll, Public Safety will use a passport quality photo for your ID card. See instructions to submit your Castleton Photo ID. Your ID card will serve as your key to get into your residence hall, your meal plan, and your overall campus identification. You will receive the card during orientation.
Will I be able to have my vehicle on campus?
Yes! All students are able to have a vehicle on campus regardless of their year at the University.
All students must register their vehicle with Public Safety each year. Online vehicle registration is available on the portal.
You will need to also abide by the parking policies outlined by Public Safety.
When will I get my Castleton email address?
Your email access will be granted shortly after you are registered for your classes. Your email address is your portal user id (initials plus your two digit birth month and two digit birth day and a 0) @castleton.edu. (Ex. firstname.lastname@example.org)
When will I receive my housing assignment?
