In early to mid August, Cushing will post student schedules on MyCushing. After that, you can visit our online bookstore at MBS Direct and select the books your child needs. There's usually a period of free shipping (in 2017, it's Aug. 7 - 20). After that, you can still purchase books, but the shipping isn't free. You can have your books shipped to Cushing for pick-up in the mailroom at registration or you can have them shipped to your home, whichever is easier for you.
Registration activities take place from 9 am until about 5 pm. There are activities scheduled for students starting around dinner. Parents typically depart sometime in the afternoon on registration days.
