As a new student at BYU, it can be daunting figuring out how to fulfill requirements and reach your dreams. One Stop Headquarters is an online source that helps students manage campus life and responsibilities all in one place.
The One Stop website is especially useful for new students and transfer students according to Abby Watson, One Stop coordinator.
“If we can help the new students and transfer students get into this right away, then it’s going to be a great resource for them throughout their whole BYU experience,” she said.
Here are the four main sections on One Stop:
Do It Now! Transactions
This section collaborates some of the most common transactions students use every semester. Students can do things like add money to a signature card, link to My Financial Center and view grades.
Watson said she thinks this tab is one of the most beneficial tools.
“One of the most valuable things is the Do-it-now tab where it lists the different departments alphabetically and any links you might need,” she said. “It has everything from waiving your student health plan, paying tuition, renting a locker and it’s just a matter of one click.”
The checklist tab is for students experiencing major life events that involve the university, such as starting a new semester, applying for financial aid, going on a mission or choosing a major. Checklists found here combine all the steps necessary into an easy step-by-step plan. Each step also links to the Do-it-now tab so students can check off tasks right from their computer.
Watson said she believes this tab can be the most helpful for new students.
“Our most viewed checklist is the new student checklist,” she said. “That’s probably the best way to get to know One Stop. Once you’ve got it down you can start using the Do-it now buttons and you don’t need the checklist anymore, but new students find that really helpful.”
BYU’s campus is larger than what most new students are used to. The Offices tab helps students navigate campus by collaborating links to some of the most popular offices on campus. Students can find which service will best meet their needs without walking all over campus.
BYU has a lot to offer, students can easily miss valuable and fun experiences and opportunities. This tab links students to campus maps and specific services available at BYU. The Student Support section provides information on things like conflict resolution and personal counseling. The Campus Amenities section has information on the Harold B. Lee Library, on-campus dining and recreational opportunities, BYU Car Sharing and athletic facilities.
If perusing the tabs doesn’t answer a question, students can always use the website search engine, the online chat feature or stop into the One Stop Headquarters in C-126 Abraham O. Smoot Administration.
