`To-Do` Before Orientation

We understand that receipt and submission of these documents and clearances may be delayed during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We encourage you to submit as soon as you have your documents collected to allow adequate time for review and processing. You will be notified by email when your documents have been received and if any additional information is required.

At this time, students should try to have all health clearance documents submitted on or before June 1, 2022. Please communicate with the Student Employee Health Office should you need additional time to submit your documents.

WesternU E-Mail/Portal/Blackboard Accounts

After you have accepted our offer and paid your first deposit, you will be assigned a WesternU e-mail account. Once your account is created, your account information will be available on your application status page. It is essential that you regularly check your WesternU e-mail account (once assigned) as all reminders and follow-up from the University will be sent through this account (including financial aid, registration and final admission requirements information). Your WesternU e-mail account login will also provide you access to the Student Portal, https://you.westernu.edu and Blackboard. Please note that Blackboard accounts will not be available for incoming students until at least one week prior to the start of classes.

Registration for incoming students typically takes place July 1 – July 31. You will need to complete all outstanding admissions requirements (see “To-Do before Orientation” list above) before you will be able to register for classes. Registration information will be sent to your WesternU e-mail address just prior to the start of classes.

Reduced Rate On Required Serum Titers At Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital (SLCH)

If you are a student attending COMP-Northwest in Lebanon, Oregon, you can use the SLCH lab to obtain the required serum titers at a markedly reduced rate. COMP Northwest has a standing order with Occupational Medicine 55 Mullins Drive Suite B2 Lebanon, Oregon.  Students should stop in or call Occupational Medicine to have the order for the labs sent to SLCH. This order form must be given to the lab to obtain the required serum titers at the reduced rate. You will be required to pay for this service before the blood can be drawn.  Please note, the lab is located within the main hospital. View the Samaritan Lebanon Community Hospital Map.
