How To Check-in To Events

STEP #1: Your Event Pass is a unique code that allows you to quickly check-in to events happening on campus.

  • Start by signing in to your Get Involved Profile.
  • Next, click on your profile picture in the top right of the screen (it may display your first initial if you do not have a profile picture).
  • You will see the Event Pass option. Click this and it will display your unique code.
  • Helpful Tip:
    • If you’re viewing the Event Pass from your mobile browser, you should see the option to add the pass to your Apple Wallet or Android Pay (coming soon). These options make it easier to access your Event Pass at a later date.
    • You can also choose to take a screenshot of your pass or print it. All of these options will still scan as expected. Once you’ve decided on how to store your Event Pass, get out there and attend an event!
