Living On Campus?
Living on campus is more than just the setting of your college career - it marks the beginning of the next phase of your journey. And at Bloomsburg, you’ll live in comfort and flourish as a member of the Husky Family.
Welcome to Husky Nation! You're coming to a place founded on the belief that opportunity is created by people determined to achieve more. We’re not afraid of hard work or setting our own path. And we’re always ready to pull together. That’s what makes us Huskies.
Now, what's next? Please use the checklist below as a roadmap to Bloomsburg!
Let's make it official! A deposit secures your spot in the Husky Family with the incoming class and launches the next phase of admissions, such as getting set up with orientation, residence life, and a step closer to landing a roommate.
Don't wait. Submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid! By completing the FAFSA form, you'll make sure you're taking advantage of the best student loan options, as well as become eligible for grants, work-study, and scholarships.
Each year we award more than $9 million in scholarships to deserving first-year and transfer students. Be sure to apply as soon as possible, because early applicants receive priority consideration.
Complete your application and submit your high school transcript by 12/15 to guarantee scholarship eligibility. (Scholarship funding is limited.)
The PA State Grant Program is a financial aid program that assists eligible Pennsylvanians afford the costs of higher education at the undergraduate level.
Check it frequently! We will primarily communicate with you through your @huskies.bloomu.edu email address. So this is your main source for important dates, deadlines, and activities.
New student accounts will begin to be issued to deposited students in mid-March. Once created, log-in instructions will be sent to the email address on file with the Office of Admissions.
The 2023-2024 housing application will become available in April for incoming students. Instructions will be sent to the email address on file with the Office of Admissions.
On-campus housing is guaranteed for both first-year and transfer students. To lock in, you need to complete your MyHousing application and housing agreement, select a meal plan, and request a roommate (if you have one in mind). Be sure to use your BU-assigned email address when starting your application.
The Learning Communities at Bloomsburg University provide support and guidance for first-year students both in and out of the classroom.
While in an LC, you will find yourself in a close-knit group of peers with similar majors, interests, and goals while still experiencing the large and diverse network of Bloomsburg University. Faculty, staff, and mentors work together to provide a fun and supportive community designed to help you adjust and grow academically and socially. A peer mentor will be available to answer questions, offer encouragement and guidance, and welcome you to campus.
Your transition to Bloomsburg University isn't confined to a one-day orientation event. We've designed a summer-long immersive program that will help you, your family, and supporters, get ready to start your journey on the right 'paw'! Every journey needs a map. Chart your course to the top at orientation.
Commonwealth University requires a mathematics ability assessment to determine readiness for various courses. Students in particular majors are required to use the ALEKS Placement, Preparation, and Learning system. Other students may choose to use this system to better prepare for classes. The ALEKS placement system covers material from Basic Math through Pre-Calculus and will take approximately 90 minutes to complete. After the assessment, a targeted Prep and Learning Module is available for you to review and better understand this material. The Learning Modules will help you improve your placement and eventual course outcomes.
All new students are required to complete the online health forms prior to starting classes. We work hard to make sure all our Huskies are healthy — your health and wellness are priorities.
***Forms will be available after July 1st.
All first-year and transfer students are required to submit a final transcript from their previous school. First-year students should submit a transcript showing proof of graduation. Transfer students should submit a transcript showing grades from their final semester in college. Please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions with any questions.
