Congratulations on being admitted! PLU is a unique place that will challenge you as a student, support you as a person, and prepare you for a lifetime of success.
Below you’ll find a list of steps to take now that you’ve been admitted. Remember that at any point you can contact your Admission Counselor at 800-274-6758 with questions.
Save the Date: Lute OverKnights
March 10-11 and April 10-11 are our Lute OverKnight visit events for admitted students only. Experience what it’s really like to be a PLU student – stay overnight in a residence hall, sit in on a class, learn how to get involved on-campus, meet your potential future classmates, and decide if PLU will be your new college home. (p.s. – you get a free t-shirt!)
If you have not yet visited campus, we recommend you do so – it is one of the most important things you will do during your college search. It is a great way to help figure out if PLU will be the right fit for you. During your visit, you can meet with an admission counselor, take a tour with a student – even meet a coach or a professor.

Review your Financial Aid package
2016-17 PLU Financial Aid offers will be mailed starting in March. We encourage you to submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), available January 1, 2016, to ensure optimal financial aid awarding. The FAFSA is free, and it is the best way to see how much it will cost to attend PLU. (Note: When filling out the FAFSA form, remember that PLU’s FAFSA school code is 003785).
2015-2016 Direct Costs
Tuition & Fees: $37,950
Room & Meals: $10,330
Once your Offer of Financial Aid has been mailed, you also have the option to view it online on your student account information (Banner Web). Banner Web log-in instructions can be found here. Be sure to review your financial aid offer with your PLU Admission Counselor, who is happy to either schedule an over-the-phone or face-to-face meeting with you and your family to answer questions regarding scholarships, grants, loans, work study, and payment options.
Join the PLU Class of 2020 Facebook Group
Join the PLU Class of 2020 Facebook Group (link coming soon!) and connect with hundreds of other students who are considering PLU. This is also a great place to post any of your questions and get real answers from current PLU students.
Be a Lute! Pay your Enrollment Deposit.
Once you have been admitted to PLU, you may pay your $200 Enrollment Deposit to join the entering class of Fall 2016, secure your housing assignment, and prepare for class registration. Need more information about residence halls before deciding where to live? Visit the Residential Life website.
To secure your spot at PLU, pay the Enrollment Deposit and complete the housing form online at www.plu.edu/bealute. If your Enrollment Deposit has already been paid, but you still need to request your housing, you can complete the online housing form at www.plu.edu/applyreslife.
Register for Classes & other Summer Preparations
After paying your Enrollment Deposit and requesting your PLU ePass, you are prepared to schedule your class registration appointment. Registration for Fall 2016 (New Student Registration) will take place June 15, 16, 17, 20 and 21, and you can schedule your registration appointment online in April on the Academic Advising website. Be sure to carefully read through your New Student Guidebook (mailed in early spring) for further information regarding scheduling and preparation for your class registration appointment.
Two other important steps to get done before coming to PLU in the Fall are to fill out and submit a Medical History Record and make sure your high school mails your final high school transcript to PLU.
