Before you arrive on campus this fall, check in online through My.Carthage. My.Carthage is the official online portal at Carthage, where students go to access their course schedules, register for classes, and review their finances. You must complete online check-in to participate in New Student Orientation. If you complete your online check-in by Aug. 1, you will have the option of arriving early on Friday, Sept. 1.
You will receive your class schedule in August. Questions? Call your first-year advisor or contact the Center for Student Success, 262-551-5800.
First Year Read
Get engaged, connected, and inspired even before you arrive on campus.
All first-year students will read the same book this summer as part of Carthage’s First Year Read experience. This year’s book is Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption by Bryan Stevenson. All students received a copy in July!
