New Student To Do List

To-Do List Checklist

Very important! Stop by the Wellness Center
Confirm the Health Center has your required Health and Immunization Records in lower Guadalupe Hall. Get your quick and easy COVID test done outside Borro Hall by the fountain from 9-1 on Sunday or 8-3 on Monday. The first 250 students tested each day receive a FREE Acai Fruit & Berry Bowl from the Aasved Acai (on Sunday) or Mountain Berry Bowls (on Monday) food trucks outside the Campus Center .

Get your student ID in Borromeo Hall 131
Students should go immediately to Borromeo Hall to have a photo taken for their ID card!! (This ID card will serve as your electronic key to your building and room). See building 24 on the campus map.

Get your parking permit
Starting August 5, you can reserve a parking permit for the 2021-22 academic year by registering your vehicle.  Carroll College students registered for 6 credits or more will receive a parking permit as part of their tuition and fees.  Students still need to go into the Rydin system and register their vehicle online and reserve their permit, but there will be no additional cost.  Permits will be handed out once a student has registered their vehicle online.

For a permit reservation, you will need your 7-digit Carroll ID number, Carroll email address and vehicle information. For students who are taking 5 credits or less, you can pay online, or you can pay by cash or check when you pick up your permit. Your permit is not guaranteed until payment is received.  Reserved permits will be available for pick-up in St. Charles Hall room 023, on Monday and Tuesday of Orientation.  During Orientation, computers are available in the O'Connell Hall second-floor lobby for you to reserve your parking permit online and helpers will be there to show you what to do.  For details on the types of permits and parking on campus, visit the parking page. Questions? Call the Parking Office at 406-447-4404 or email us at
