Freshmen NEXT STEPS
The people you'll meet, the memories you'll create, the things you will learn, and the purpose you'll bring are all eagerly awaiting your arrival. You belong here. Welcome to The U community!
AFTER YOU RECEIVE YOUR ADMISSIONS LETTER
Create a Campus Information Services (CIS) Account
Using the university ID (uNID) included in your admissions letter and default password (which is your birthdate in MMDDYY format) log-in to cis.utah.edu. Here is where you will register for classes, pay tuition, apply for housing, view grades, and more.
Confirm Your Intent to Enroll
To save your spot at the U, confirm your intent to enroll and pay the non-refundable $300 enrollment deposit. Don't worry - the deposit counts toward your first-semester tuition. If the deposit is a financial burden you may be eligible for an Enrollment Deposit Extension. Visit admissions.utah.edu/confirm for more information on the Enrollment Deposit, as well as extension requests. International students requiring a student visa to study at the U are not required to pay the Enrollment Deposit but still need to confirm their intent to enroll. *Note: You can accept your scholarship(s) (if applicable) when you confirm your intent to enroll.
Create Your University Email (UMail) Account
Using your new university ID (uNID), log-in to your UMail account at cis.utah.edu. Here you can create an alias or forward your email to an existing account. Please note all official university communication will be sent to your UMail account.
AFTER YOU CONFIRM YOUR ENROLLMENT
Apply for Financial Aid & Scholarships (optional)
Fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for grants, loans, and work-study. Visit financialaid.utah.edu to learn more. Visit scholarships.utah.edu to apply for on-campus scholarship opportunities. Deadlines and requirements will vary.
You can find your financial aid offer in your CIS account.
Apply for Housing (optional)
APPLICATIONS OPEN FEB 2021
Apply early, as housing fills up quickly and spaces are not guaranteed. Those interested in on-campus housing can learn more about living on campus and how to apply by visiting, housing.utah.edu.
AFTER YOU SUBMIT YOUR DEPOSIT
Register for New Student Orientation (required)
Once you've confirmed your intent to enroll, sign up to attend a mandatory New Student Orientation session where you'll prepare for school, meet with an academic advisor, and register for classes. To find out more, please visit the Office of Orientation and Transition website.
Submit Your Final Transcripts (required)
Admitted students must submit final high school and/or college transcripts to the Office of Admissions as soon as they are available. Students who fail to submit these transcripts may be prevented from registering for courses and/or receiving financial aid.
For semester start dates, view the Academic Calendar.
Pay Tuition and Fees
Tuition and student fees are typically due during the second week of the semester. Save yourself from long lines and pay online through the CIS portal.
