Freshman Admission

Starting your college career is an exciting and busy time in your life. These next steps will help guide you through the freshman admission process and prepare you for success at the College.

Accepted Student Next Steps

There are a few things you should take care of right away:

  1. Submit Your Deposit
    Once you submit your $300 enrollment deposit and mail in your Intent to Enroll form, you can register for New Student Orientation and apply for housing and parking. You can submit your deposit online at stlcop.edu/deposit. Your Intent to Enroll form should be mailed to the Office of Admissions at 4588 Parkview Place, St. Louis, MO 63110.
  2. Complete the FAFSA
    It’s important to complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible. The FAFSA gives you access to the largest source of financial aid to pay for your education. Access the FAFSA at fafsa.gov.

Before you begin your classes, you will have a few more steps to take:

  1. Submit Your Final Transcripts
    Contact your previous school(s) to request to have your official transcripts sent to the College. Submit official score reports for Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate or dual credit courses – you may be able to earn credit for them. Mail all documents to the Office of Admissions at 4588 Parkview Place, St. Louis, MO 63110.
  2. Register for Orientation
    While you may have visited campus, New Student Orientation is your first introduction to the College as a student. During orientation, we will help you take care of all the details like registering for classes, getting your student ID and applying for parking. You’ll also have the opportunity to learn more about our curriculum and get to know your classmates!
  3. Apply for Housing
    Living on campus provides you with a unique opportunity to build lifelong friendships and take advantage of a network of support resources here to help you be your best. All new undergraduate students under the age of 21 are required to live on campus until they have completed 90 credit hours. Housing applications are available online, and we’ll walk you through roommate selection at orientation. For additional questions, contact Maryam Ouechani, coordinator of residence life, at maryam.ouechani@stlcop.edu or 314.446.8164.
  4. Apply for Parking
    Students have the opportunity to park on campus. Parking applications are reviewed after your enrollment deposit is received, on a first-come, first-served basis. Parking is subject to availability, so it is best to apply early. Learn more at stlcop.edu/parking.
  5. Submit Your Health Form
    As a new student, you must complete a health form before enrolling in classes. You can submit the form online.
  6. Place your laptop order online at techstore.stlcop.edu by Monday, July 1. This laptop is a requirement for all classes and orders must be placed by Monday, July 1, to arrive in time for the first day of classes. Your laptop will be distributed to you during Fall Orientation.

If you have any questions or need any assistance with your next steps, we are here to help. Please contact the Office of Admissions or your admissions representative at 314.446.8328 or admissions@stlcop.edu.
