There are more people than you can imagine who are here and willing to help you with your transition to Mount Union. You have already received assistance from members of our Office of Admission staff and will continue to receive further guidance from them, the Office of First Year Initiatives, the Office of Student Affairs staff and many, many others on campus.
If you have been admitted for the spring semester, a detailed checklist is available below.
