Getting Started Checklist

This is your month-by-month guide to tasks you need to accomplish before the start of term (and when you need to complete them).

Start with the current month, but also go back and check off tasks from all prior months before the next month begins!

Feel free to work ahead where possible, but as long as you stay on pace with the suggested timing, you will be prepared for the first week of class.
