I'm Admitted. What's Next?

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:

  1. 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.

  2. 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. Remember—all official university communication will be sent to your UMail account. For futher assistance, you can use this setup guide

  3. Submit a Housing Application
    To learn about the housing deadline and reservation system, visit housing.utah.edu. To apply for housing, click on the housing tile in CIS and apply online.

  4. 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 by Feb. 1. Visit scholarships.utah.edu to search and apply for additional scholarships.

  5. Confirm Your Intent to Enroll and Pay the $300 Enrollment Deposit or Request an Enrollment Deposit Extension
    To save a spot here at the U, domestic undergraduate students must confirm their intent to enroll, including paying the non-refundable $300 enrollment deposit, by the deadline. Don’t worry—the fee counts toward your first-semester tuition.

  6. Register for Red, White & U 
    This is a great opportunity to get your first glimpse of life at the U. Register here.

  7. Register for New Student Orientation
    Registration for New Student Orientation opens on Jan. 28. You can’t register for classes until you’ve completed a New Student Orientation session. You will also need to complete and return the proof of immunization forms you receive at Orientation. 

After You Graduate:

  1. Submit Your Final Transcripts
    Don’t forget to submit your final high school transcripts to the Office of Admissions after you graduate. Financial Aid may not be disbursed until final transcripts have been received.

Before Classes Start:

  1. Pay Tuition and Fees
    Visit the calendar on the Registrar's Office site to determine the tuition deadline. Save yourself from long lines and pay online through the CIS portal.

  2. Visit Your Advisor
    Advisors provide guidance in completing general education requirements and prerequisite coursework, as well as assist you in choosing a major. Schedule an appointment with your advisor.  

Academic Advising Center

All new freshmen admitted to the University will be enrolled in the Academic Advising Center until they are accepted into a specific degree-granting department, program, or college of the University. Learn more about Academic Advising Center.
