Congratulations on your admission to PLU! We’re excited that you’re considering joining our community and becoming a Lute.
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 PLU Admission Counselor at 800-274-6758 with questions.
Save the Date: Lute OverKnights
March 15-16 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!).
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
Submit your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) soon to ensure optimal financial aid awarding for the 2018-19 academic year. 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).
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.
Be a Lute! Pay your Enrollment Deposit.
Once you have been admitted to PLU, you can pay your $200 Enrollment Deposit to join the entering class of Fall 2018, 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 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 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 2018 classes (New Student Registration) will take place June 13, 14, 15, 18, 19 and 20. You can request your registration appointment online on the Academic Advising website. Be sure to carefully read through your New Lute Guide (mailed in early spring) for further information regarding scheduling and preparation for your class registration appointment.
Other important steps to complete before coming to PLU in the fall are to fill out and submit a Medical History Record, complete the Meningococcal Release Acknowledgment, and make sure your high school mails your final high school transcript to PLU (you must also send in official college transcripts if you want to transfer in Running Start or college credits, and official AP, IB, or Cambridge scores if you want credit for those tests).
