Other Important Steps

Here you’ll find all the information you’ll need to prepare for your first year on campus.

Once you have submitted your tuition deposit, you will be eligible to register for courses. New student registration appointments will begin in late May.

Every student is assigned an academic advisor who will work with you throughout your time at Bushnell. First year students will also be part of a First Year Seminar course your first semester, led by a faculty and staff member. You can expect to hear from them over the summer.

Check your My.Bushnell portal for more information on advising/registration appointments! 

A financial aid award letter will be made once you are admitted and have completed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Financial aid awards for fall semester applicants are traditionally granted in the spring prior to enrollment, or for spring semester applicants in the fall prior to enrollment. Should you have any questions about the process or your specific financial aid award, you may contact the Financial Aid Office at 541-684-7291 or or your admissions counselor.

Campus visits are an important step in the college search, particularly as you near the end of your decision-making process. We offer a number of exclusive visit options—including both on-campus and virtual options. View options and schedule your campus visit.

Access to Bushnell’s virtual bookstore will be available within your My.Bushnell portal. You may purchase books from any retailer but please make sure you order the exact edition specified in the bookstore.
