Getting Started with Launch


Prepare to Launch!

Congratulations! You have now secured your spot in next year’s incoming class by being accepted to Franklin College and paying your deposit. We are thrilled to welcome you to campus. You will find details on our distinctive first-year experience, Launch, as well as next steps below.


1 – In the next week or so, you will receive a package in the mail from us, containing your username and password for the New Student Checklist, as well as some fun Franklin College swag! If for some reason this package doesn’t arrive, contact our student success team or the office of admissions.

2 – Complete your New Student Checklist. It provides us with detailed information for New Student Registration. The checklist should take about 30-40 minutes to complete. If you plan to complete the Foreign Language Placement Exam, you will need additional time. Allow 90 minutes for the French or German exam and 60 minutes for the Spanish exam.

Items you will need to complete the checklist:

  • A good internet connection
  • Some prior thought about your academic area of interest
  • Contact information for your parents/legal guardian
  • Information about your hometown newspaper
  • Your health records including dates of vaccinations
  • Your health insurance company (if you have one)

3 – To allow for the most options in choosing your New Student Registration date, First-Year Seminar class and housing assignments, do not delay in completing the checklist.
