Timeline & Important Deadlines

Before your arrival on campus, there are a few things you need to do to make sure you are all set to start your new adventure at Colby-Sawyer College. Check out these important deadlines and requirements below to be sure that you've completed the necessary steps on time!


Each student is required to complete the Charger Checklist,  a list of tasks encompassing Academics, Community, Financial Information, and Health & Wellbeing before their arrival on campus. The completion of these tasks is vital to ensuring that incoming students have all the necessary requirements they need to be successful and safe on campus.

The checklist can be accessed on the Admitted Student Portal under the Charger Checklist tab. Each item is listed with links that will be needed to complete them, along with the name of the department and contact information if students need to contact them for additional support in completing tasks. To the left of the item, a green check mark indicates completion of each item. Once all items are checked off, you're good to go!
