Information for New Billikens

What's Next?

Step One: Get Started in mySLU

The mySLU portal serves as a comprehensive online resource for our admitted students. As a new Billiken, you can use mySLU to submit your enrollment deposit, apply for housing and see important due dates. 

1. Follow these step-by-step instructions to set up your SLU Net ID. 

2. You will log in to your mySLU account using your SLU Net ID and SLU Net ID password. 1818 students: If you've previously logged in to mySLU or paid for classes, use the same password.

Need help? ITS is available by phone weekdays at 314-977-4000.

Step Two: Confirm Your Enrollment

To confirm your enrollment at SLU, you’ll need to pay an enrollment deposit. (For SLU-Madrid students, this is called a confirmation fee.) This secures your place in the freshman class and should be submitted when you have decided to attend SLU. If you decide not to attend SLU, you will forfeit your enrollment deposit.
