You’re In!

If you have been admitted to PLU – congratulations! 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.

Lute OverKnights

March 12-13 and April 12-13 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!) RSVP here.

Visit Campus

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. To schedule your visit, click here.

Review your Financial Aid package

2015-16 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, 2015, 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

Total: $48,280

Once you have received your Offer of Financial Aid, be sure to review it 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.  Our Do the Math worksheet is a helpful way to compare PLU’s financial aid offer with offers from other schools you are considering.

Join the PLU Class of 2019 Facebook Group

Join the PLU Class of 2019 Facebook Group 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 2015, secure your housing assignment, and prepare for class registration.

To secure your spot at PLU, please send your Enrollment Deposit along with your New Student Information Form and the housing form that you received with your admission packet to the Office of Admission. You can also 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

After paying your Enrollment Deposit and requesting your PLU ePass, you are prepared to schedule your class registration appointment.  Registration for Fall 2015 (New Student Registration) will take place June 17, 18, 19, 22 and 23, 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 soon) for further information regarding scheduling and preparation for your class registration appointment.

Orientation

Now that you’re officially a Lute, it’s time to look forward to Fall Orientation, and the start of your college experience!
