Commuter Student Resources
Each year, we have several hundred students who commute to campus, including undergraduate, graduate, and dual-enrolled students. You are a valued member of our campus community, and we want you to feel right at home!
This page provides valuable information and resources to help you, including getting your ID and registering your vehicle, eating and studying on campus, and accessing help with technology.
Commuter students should contact the office of the Dean of Women or Dean of Men with questions.
IDs, Parking, and Getting Around Campus
New students, submit a campus ID photo and pick up your student ID at the Campus Security office on the top floor of the Stevens Student Center (SSC). If you lose your student ID, please contact Campus Security for a replacement. Please note that Dual Enrollment Student IDs are not programmable for meal plans, dining dollars, or access to rooms.
Register your vehicle online and purchase a parking pass at the Campus Security office, located on the top floor of the Stevens Student Center (SSC). The cost for a parking pass is $100/year for undergraduate and graduate students and $25/year for dual enrollment students.
As a commuter, you may park in white-striped parking spaces only in the following parking lots: Tyler, SSC, HSC, and CAL.
For a complete list of parking guidelines, please see Campus Security.

Meals, Studying, and Getting Involved
A commuter lounge is located in the Apple Technology Resource Center (APP). Located in the open area on the very south end of the building, the lounge has a microwave, vending machines, and seating for commuter students. There is no refrigerator. Other popular places to study are the Centennial Library, Center for Biblical and Theological Studies (BTS) atrium, and Stevens Student Center (SSC) upper level. Find building hours.
Eating on Campus
You can use cash, credit, debit cards, or flex dollars on your ID to purchase meals and snacks at several locations on campus. (Dual enrollment students must purchase a special ID for $10 to add flex dollars. Contact the Cashiers Office for more information.) View commuter meal plan, plan details, and dining hours on the Meal Plan Fact Sheet.

Undergraduate commuters should attend chapel daily. Graduate and high school students are encouraged, but not required, to attend chapel. Chapel is held daily in the Jeremiah Chapel in the Dixon Ministry Center. If you do not have a class before noon, you are not required to go to chapel that day (but be sure to update this information in the chapel record system). You can find chapel guidelines in the student handbook.
Intramural Sports, D-groups, and Student Organizations
Undergraduate and graduate students are encouraged to participate in any of our intramural sports, D-groups through Discipleship Ministries, or one of our more than 100 student organizations. High school students are not able to participate in these groups. Commuter students are also able to use the Rec Center.
