New Student Checklist

This checklist is intended for students who have been admitted to the School of Professional and Continuing Studies and received acknowledgement from the University.

Technology and Networking

Much of your student experience at University of Richmond relies on technology and networking. As a result, there are several steps you should take as soon as you receive your admissions letter, which contains your University of Richmond ID (URID) and password. You’ll need your URID and birthdate in MMDDYYYY format to activate your account.

  • Review instructions for activating your network account
  • Visit the Network Account Management page to activate your NetID computing account for email, networking access and more
  • Install Duo Security on a mobile device to enable required 2-factor authentication for off-campus access to BannerWeb and VPN
  • Access BannerWeb using your NetID and password to enter emergency information and to register for classes
  • Connect to the campus network, access netfiles storage and more
Your Course of Study

Careful planning of your course of study ensures that you take only those classes required for your degree and that you maintain eligibility for financial aid, if applicable. Your primary point of contact for planning is your student advisor.

Campus Necessities

Everyone — even distance students — needs things on and from campus, from the library to the bookstore and beyond. Your student ID card and your parking pass are among the keys to getting things done on campus.

Tuition & Financial Aid

Figuring out how and where to pay tuition and fees can be complicated. These items in the checklist will help you navigate the finances of your University of Richmond education.
