Steps for Admitted Students

Have you been admitted to SLU as a graduate student? Take the steps outlined below to finalize your enrollment. Don’t hesitate to contact your graduate admission counselor if you have any questions. If you are an international student, there are additional steps you’ll need to take.

Step 1: Accept or decline your admission

If you applied using SLU’s online graduate application, you can notify us about your decision to accept or decline your admission by logging in and clicking on “Manage Your Account.” From there, you can access the decision form.

If you’ve used a third-party, centralized application to apply — such as SOPHAS for public health programs or CASPA for physician administration programs — you’ll need to email us directly at with your decision.

Step 2: Set up your SLU Net ID, MySLU account and SLU email

Follow these step-by-step instructions to get connected.

Step 3: Check with your academic department

Contact your department in order to receive enrollment directions, important dates and other information specific to your graduate program. You can also check the University calendar.

Step 4: Read the Saint Louis University Graduate Catalog

The Saint Louis University Graduate Catalog has useful information about life at SLU as a graduate student, including campus resources, academic policies and program curricula.

Step 5: Submit your immunization and health insurance forms
