Preparing for Class
First Class Assignment/Textbook Information
Most courses require completion of an assignment before the first night of class. Textbook and first class assignment information is available in the Course Schedule. A copy of the course syllabus is available on Canvas approximately 1 week prior to the start of the term.
The University of Denver provides all students with a DU email address (firstname.lastname@example.org). Most newly admitted students who provided a personal email address at the time of admission will have their DU email automatically forwarded to their personal email account.
If a new student did not provide a personal email account at the time of admission and has not received an email concerning their email@example.com address, they must set up a "preferred" personal email address. Students who do not set up this "preferred" address will be given a registration hold.
The DU email address is the official means of communication from the University of Denver and will be used in campus applications and directories. Students may elect to change their "preferred" personal address to another provider of their choice at any time on webCentral.
Please log into webCentral and set up a "preferred" personal email address. Choose the student tab and click "Set up a preferred off-campus email address" or choose the myWeb tab, open Banner self service, and under Personal Information, choose Update Email Address. Insert a personal email address and mark it as preferred. A verification email will be sent to the "preferred" address.
For additional information concerning DU email policy, please see http://www.du.edu/studentemail. For information concerning email and internet services, or for problems with DU email accounts, contact University Technology Services (UTS) at 303-871-4700 or visit www.du.edu/uts.

A night/weekend permit allows access to most general and restricted lots after 5 p.m. on weeknights and all day on Saturdays and Sundays. Some general lots require a DU Pioneer ID card; please be sure to obtain your student ID card.
Pioneer ID Card
Your DU Pioneer Card identifies you as a member of the University community and provides you with a wide variety of features and benefits on and around campus.

Monthly Payment Plan
Students may enroll in a flexible tuition payment plan through the University of Denver Bursar's Office.

Financial assistance in the form of Stafford Loans is available to University College students. See financial aid for detail.
