Case Western Reserve University is brimming with resources to support new students personally, academically, professionally and beyond. Faculty and staff at the university are here to help you find what you need to be most successful.

Course Selection and Registration

Student Information System (SIS) – Just about everything you need to know about yourself as a student is in the SIS portal. Student services available include, but are not limited to, your schedule of classes, registration, grades and transcripts, financial account inquiry, authorized users (parent access) and payments.

Residence Life

Residence Hall Tours – Not sure what will be available to you in your residence, or just not sure what to pack? Navigate through the interactive tour, provided by University Housing, to get a better idea of room necessities and what you may need to bring to campus.

Residence Life First-Year Experience – First-year residential students become a member of one of four residential colleges (Cedar, Juniper, Magnolia and Mistletoe) upon move-in/check-in before the official start of Orientation. Your residential college plays an integral part in your personal and academic transition to the CWRU community, so be sure to regularly check your residential college portal for updates and upcoming events.

CaseOneCard – This is your official identification card, and it’s your access to nearly everything—from checking out books at the Kelvin Smith Library to accessing various on-campus buildings to eating at the dining halls or even at area restaurants. You will receive your CaseOneCard upon move-in/check-in before the official start of Orientation, as long as you’ve completed the Campus Services & Housing requirements on your New Student Checklist.

Academic and Professional Support

Peer Tutoring – Need extra assistance in your classes? Peer tutors, available by appointment, are trained to work with you individually, or within a small group, to help reinforce what you already know, model new ways of learning, monitor your progress over several sessions and help you get ready to approach your professor with specific questions.

Resume/Cover Letter Review – Working on campus is a great way to earn money and also start gaining practical job experience. Before you apply for jobs, reach out to the Career Center, which is home to experts who can help review your resume and cover letter. Also consider checking out the Career Center’s mock interview service to help prepare for your interview.
