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

Set up your SLU Net ID at

  • Your initial SLU Net Password is the last 6-digits of your Banner ID preceded by "Id". (The “I” is capital.) Example: Your Banner ID is 001234567, so your initial SLU Net Password is Id234567.
  • You are required to change your SLU Net Password before accessing SLU systems and then every 180 days.

Then, reset your password. Once you log in, you can change your password. Re-enter your old password (Id234567), enter your new password twice and click Change Password. Your new password must contain the following:

  • One (1) capital and one (1) lowercase letter
