Enrollment Checklist

  • ☑ Be Admitted to the Ramily!
  • Now That You've Been Admitted

  • ☐ Apply for Financial Aid, If You Haven’t Already

    If you're applying for aid, fill out the FAFSA form as soon as possible. Here's all the information you’ll need to get going.

  • ☐ Confirm & Submit Your Enrollment Deposit

    You may submit your enrollment deposit online to reserve your spot.

    Your deposit will go toward your first-semester tuition. Enrollment deposits are refundable if requested in writing before the deadline listed in your acceptance letter.

  • ☐ Register for Orientation and Register for Classes

    Once you've submitted your enrollment deposit, check your email for registration instructions for Fall Orientation or Spring Orientation. Once you’ve registered, you'll receive instructions on course registration and the math placement exam.

  • Before You Enroll (The Sooner, The Better)

  • ☐ Complete Your Health Requirements

    Please read about and download our required Immunization form.

    Massachusetts requires students to have health insurance that meets certain minimum requirements. You will be enrolled automatically in the Suffolk Student Health Insurance Plan unless you submit the online insurance waiver form.

  • ☐ Submit Your Final Transcripts

    High School Seniors
    You must have your final high school transcript sent to Suffolk University’s Office of Undergraduate Admission upon graduation. If you qualify for financial aid, we must receive your final high school transcript before the start of your first semester at Suffolk in order to distribute your award.

    Transfer Students
    If you haven’t already, please have a final official transcript of all the courses you’ve taken submitted as soon as possible. For any courses you are currently taking, transcripts should be sent as soon as they are available. Proof of high school graduation or equivalency is required for students with less than 60 college credits and those who have not obtained an Associate’s degree. Transcripts or documentation must be sent to the Office of Undergraduate Admission before classes begin. If Suffolk doesn’t receive this proof before the start of the semester, we can’t distribute your financial aid.

  • ☐ Pay Your Tuition Bill

    An electronic invoice for your tuition will be posted to SU Pay, your online billing and payment gateway.

    Student Account Services is your source for everything you need to know about tuition payments.

  • ☐ You’re going to be a Ram!
