Your Tribe Guide Checklist

There are several tasks that you need to complete before arriving on campus. Please note that all questionnaires, educational modules, applications, etc. are your responsibility. Providing your login information to another individual (whether that be a parent, spouse or friend) and having that person fill out the form on your behalf is a violation of the W&M Honor Code

We've provided program availability and task deadlines below, but you should continue to visit the Tribe Guide for updates and Hot Topics.

Print this page to mark your progress as you go.

Column group headers designate month, first column is day of the month, second column is date/deadline, third column is empty box for users that print the checklist and manually check items as they go.
