TreeHouse

TreeHouse provides students, faculty, and staff with a direct link to Drew University's administrative database and resources. It is designed as a convenient way for the University community to access administrative information.

In order to access the TreeHouse options listed below, students need to be in the 'Student' tab.

Registration

All of your student records can be found in TreeHouse, including registration for any upcoming classes. To access your registration, use the "Registration Tools" in your TreeHouse Dashboard. You can also access your student account and other records from the dashboard.

If you have any questions regarding registration, please contact the Registrar's Office.

TreeHouse Ladder

TreeHouse Ladder is a program that helps you track progress toward your degree requirements. It includes a tool to calculate GPA, a class planner for future semesters, as well as a detailed listing of completed courses and courses needed to finish your major and/or minor.

Billing and Account Statements

TreeHouse also contains an area where you can see your current account balance (what you owe the school or vice versa) as well as your account summary. If you have any questions about this, contact Financial Aid or the Business Office.

Near the bottom of the TreeHouse Student page is where you can accept your financial aid (loans) for the year, after taking the direct loan entrance counseling and accepting Drew's terms and conditions of service.

Proxy access (FAQ)

Proxy access can be given to a parent/guardian/spouse, etc, by a student. This is not mandatory. Unless proxy access is given, no information about the student can be given to a parent by the school.

To grant access, the student will need to select 'Parent/Guardian Proxy Access', which is located in the TreeHouse Student tab under 'Help & Services'.

There is also information for parents in the TreeHouse tab named 'Parents'. This will give information about how to contact the student, and links to information about visiting and various departments on campus, as well as a link to the TreeHouse Proxy Login.

Employment

If a student works on-campus and is paid through Drew, their electronic time-card will also be available to be filled out and submitted for approval on their TreeHouse Student page.

Employment opportunities on campus are posted to the Drew Community Forums Student Employment Opportunities Forum and the Career Center's DrewLink.

The TreeHouse Student page also provides links to Housing SelfService, to register for parking on campus, and to Dining/Meal Plan options (which can be found in the Housing SelfService page).

Network drives are storage locations maintained by University Technology. Each Drewid is allotted a personal F: drive, and most Drewids will see additional network drives, depending on their roles at the University. Additional information can be found at My Network Drives.

You can access all the available technology at Drew from off campus.

F: Drive Files

Using MyFiles, you can access the files from your F: Drive from anywhere off campus (or when on campus but not logged into the Drew network). Simply go to https://myfiles.drew.edu/ and log in. You will see your F: Drive, and the other network drives, in the navigation pane on the left.

For more help and information on the F: Drive, see Drew University's documentation on My Network Drives.
