Start Your Pursuit

Visit Campus

As an admitted student, you have the option to schedule an in-person visit or a virtual visit.  We are excited to show you around. 

While we cannot host overnight stays at this moment due to COVID-19, we hope to resume these soon.

Learn About Merit-Scholarships

Once admitted, you’ll receive your merit-scholarship notification by mail. Those admitted before Dec. 1 will receive scholarship notification before Dec. 31. Students admitted after Dec. 1 will receive notifications on a rolling basis. We encourage you to apply for additional outside scholarships as much as possible.

Pay Your Enrollment Deposit

Reserve your spot by paying your $200 Enrollment Deposit. Once your deposit is received, you’ll be able to log into the New Student Checklist. This checklist will ensure you have all the forms and resources you need to officially become a Grizzly. Depositing early gives you preference for housing and registration.

File the FAFSA

We encourage all families to file the FAFSA, regardless of income. You may start it as early as Oct. 1 and finish it as late as April 15 to receive consideration for state and federal financial aid.

Filing the FAFSA early benefits you. In December the college begins creating financial aid offers for students who have included us on their FAFSA. Then, in mid-December, we email students their offer, which includes your federal financial aid along with your academic merit scholarship. An admissions counselor will work closely with you after that to discuss all of your options.

Attend New Student Registration Day

During this exciting time, you’ll meet other Grizzlies, receive your fall class schedule, tour residence halls and dive into Griz life. This event is required for all new students. Attending an early registration date will give you the most flexibility in building a class schedule. You must submit your enrollment deposit to attend. You must submit your enrollment deposit and complete your  New Student Checklist to attend.

Stay Connected

Join us on social media! As a new student, you’ll have access to our Facebook group so you can connect with other future Grizzlies.



Attend Admitted Griz Days
