Important Dates for Enrolling Students

Please check back to this page periodically while you prepare for the semester as dates are subject to change.

This timeline is designed to help you prepare to begin your first semester of classes as a Willamette student. We’ll be in contact with you to support you through each of the tasks outlined here, so please keep an eye on your email for detailed instructions outlining how to complete each item in this list.

The university will be closed and staff will be unavailable for winter break beginning December 12, but we will reopen on January 4 and staff will be eager to answer any questions you may have.

If you have had a 504, IEP or ADA accommodation before or if you believe that you will need accommodations, we encourage you to pursue a consultation with Accessible Education Services by reaching out when the university reopens in early January.
