Once you've logged into mySLU, you can:

  1. Submit your enrollment deposit. To confirm your enrollment at SLU, you'll need to submit your $500 enrollment deposit. Your enrollment deposit secures your place at the University and should be submitted once you have decided to attend SLU. Course registration and academic advising cannot be scheduled until the enrollment deposit has been received. If you decide not to attend SLU, you will forfeit your enrollment deposit. 
  2. Complete your housing contract. Students within their first four semesters of college are required to live on campus. This includes students who have attended another college or university for fewer than four semesters. The new student housing contract opens on Feb. 1 for students beginning in the fall and Oct. 1 for students beginning in the spring.
  3. Register for SLU 101 Transfer Orientation. Attendance is expected of all incoming transfer students. To register, go to, click on the SLU 101 Orientation icon. SLU 101 Orientation registration opens mid-March for Summer/Fall students and early-November for Spring students.
