You’ve been admitted to the University of Utah. Now what?
There are a few things you will need to do to get ready. If you haven’t already, we hope you will come check out your new home. Schedule your campus visit.
As Soon As Possible:
- Create Your Campus Information Services (CIS) Account
Using the University ID and password included in your admissions letter, log on to your CIS account at cis.utah.edu. Here you can change your password, register for classes, pay tuition, apply for housing, access online classes and library resources, view grades, access your academic records, and more. Once your CIS account has been created, be sure to accept your scholarships, if you have been awarded any.
- Activate your University E-mail Account (UMail)
Using your uNID and your new password, you can check your University E-mail (uMail). You can create an alias or forward your e-mail at cis.utah.edu. But remember—all official university communication will be sent to your UMail account.
- Submit a Housing Application
To learn about the housing deadline and reservation system, visit housing.utah.edu.
- Apply for Scholarships and Financial Aid
Visit financialaid.utah.edu to learn more about both scholarships and financial aid. We recommend all students complete the FAFSA.
