I plan to start my studies online...

  1. Your next steps to officially reserve your spot as a student are to return your completed Notification of Intent form and pay the $100 Matriculation deposit, which you can do online here (you will need your student ID, which should have been previously sent via email to you with your acceptance letter).
  2. After submission of your NOI form & Matriculation deposit, you should receive an automated email with your student account information and log-in within 24-48 hours. If for any reason you do not receive this, please reach out to [email protected]
  3. Before you register for classes, visit the Registration Hub to view your Degree Checklist (listing all required courses by degree), upcoming Course Schedule, Academic Calendar with important dates & much more. You can also schedule a meeting with one of our Academic Advisors (just email [email protected] to request), if you find you might need some direction on which courses to take.
  4. You are now ready to register for classes through our CAMS server (for a tutorial on CAMS or for more information on registration, click here).
  5. Once you’ve registered for courses, the library website is a great resource for e-books, journal articles, and more.
  6. You will also want to check out Canvas using your log in, where professors will include a lot of the information you need for your coursework (syllabus, assignments, grades, class discussions, etc.).
  7. It’ll also be super important to stay up to date on the latest Gordon-Conwell news and updates, checking your GCTS webmail

  9. If you have a driver’s license from your home country, we encourage you to bring it with you as it may help with obtaining new car insurance in the United States.
  10. Disability Support Services are available through our Student Life Offices. Please find more information here.
  11. Interested in scholarships and other available opportunities on campus? Check out the list of Scholarships & Grants available through Gordon-Conwell (prior to the application deadlines).
