In addition to registering for classes, you'll complete important paperwork and get valuable information, including details about move-in, FERPA, meal plans and more.

Students may bring up to six guests. Parents and guardians are encouraged to attend.

Tentative schedule

Subject to change

Students will be assigned to Group A or Group B based on the date they submitted their deposit. We will provide you with a personalized schedule including your registration appointments at check-in.

Register for Eagle Base Camp

I've already registered for classes as an Early Commit student. Should I come to Eagle Base Camp?

Yes! Besides getting to know your classmates on an excursion and seeing your dorm room, you still have important paperwork and other tasks to complete as part of the enrollment process. Coming to Eagle Base Camp means you'll have less work to do at Orientation.

Can I choose to be in Group A or Group B?

Group assignment is based on the date you submitted your deposit.

When will I know what group I'm in?

You will find out your group assignment the week before Eagle Base Camp.

What does Eagle Base Camp cost?

There is a $10 registration fee per student and per guest. The float trip costs an additional $30. 

How many guests may I bring?

Students may bring up to six guests. Parents and guardians are encouraged to attend.

Can parents go on an excursion?

Excursions are only for students. While their student is away on their excursion, parents may use the parent lounge, attend information sessions or explore Northwest Arkansas on their own.

Are on-campus accommodations available?

On-campus accommodations are not available for Eagle Base Camp. View local accommodations.

What if I can't make it to Eagle Base Camp?

You will register in August online with an advisor and complete the enrollment process when you arrive to campus in the fall.

I have a question. Who should I contact?

Please contact your admissions counselor or the Visit Office at campusvisit@jbu.edu or (479) 524-7161.
