Upon acceptance to the Summer Studies program, you may be asking "What's next?" Please refer carefully to the next steps for continued guidance and a successful Summer Studies experience!
- Confirm your attendance and reserve housing.
Submit your $50 reservation deposit to reserve your place in the Summer Studies program. Also submit your $50 housing deposit to reserve your lodging in a dorm. If you are a continuing Dual Enrollment (DE) student, only submit a $50 housing deposit.
Deposits are non-refundable and are credited towards your Summer Studies expenses. When your deposits are processed, you can be registered for class.
- Contact the DE coordinator.
The DE coordinator provides advising for selecting your class and can answer questions you have about attending Summer Studies.
- Register for class.
All Summer Studies class registrations are completed with the DE coordinator and through the office of the registrar. To register for a course, review important dates and submit a completed Summer Studies Course Request Form. A guidance counselor's signature is required to register for courses. However, if you are a home school student, your parent can sign as the guidance counselor. You will receive a confirmation email from the DE coordinator when you are registered.
- Arrive for orientation.
Orientation check-in begins at 1 p.m. on Saturday, June 8. Plan to arrive on campus at the Stevens Student Center no later than 3 p.m. If you need to arrive earlier than 1 p.m., please contact the DE coordinator so that we can ensure a University representative is available to greet you.
- Coordinate airport transportation (if necessary).
If you need airport transportation, the University will provide round-trip transportation to Dayton International Airport for $45. Round-trip transportation to Port Columbus International Airport is $80. Please request airport transportation by completing the Summer Studies Airport Transportation Request Form. For more information, please contact Residence Life by calling 937-766-7872 or by emailing Student Services.

The Summer Studies Student Guide 2013 provides important information about orientation, tips on what to bring, and information about campus life.

If you have not settled your student account before arriving on campus, come prepared to pay the remainder of your student bill and to purchase textbooks during orientation. Both the cashiers office and the University Bookstore will be open from 2–4 p.m.

The following forms must be completed and signed for student participation in various Summer Studies activities:
