Congrats on your decision to attend Utah State University! We're excited for you to join our Aggie family and share in the rich traditions at Utah State. Please take time to review your next steps, which will navigate you through the transition of becoming a student at USU.
Admitted Students - Next Steps
ad•mit•ted stu•dent: applied, been accepted, and can’t wait to attend Utah State
Create Your USU Password
Your USU password requires you to know your A-Number and is used to log into most USU systems.
Submit Your FAFSA (optional)
This allows USU to offer you the maximum amount of federal, state, and institutional aid to help pay for school. Completing the FAFSA usually takes less than an hour and can pay big dividends. See Financial Support.
Apply for Additional Scholarships (optional)
You are already considered for academic scholarships if you applied by the deadline, but many nonacademic awards and additional scholarships require a separate application and will have different deadlines.
Scholarship Acceptance Deadlines:
- Summer/Fall Semester: May 1
- Spring Semester: December 1
Confirm Your Enrollment (select one)
Defer Your Admission
(Coming to USU later)
A deferral is for admitted students who have not started classes at USU and need to delay their admission to a future semester.
Confirm your enrollment to complete the following steps.
Begin Orientation Online
The five-module orientation is completed over the course of several months, giving you information at the time you need it. Orientation for students starting summer or fall opens in mid-February.
Register for Classes
Orientation will tell you everything you need to select classes, speak with your academic advisor, and register on time. Once you register for class, a new USU email account will be created for you, and all official communication will be sent to that account during your time at USU.
Pay Tuition and Fees
Pay your tuition and fees by the deadline each semester you enroll. Orientation will explain how to pay, so make sure to complete your orientation modules.
Parents - Stay in the Know
par•ent: supports future Aggies in more ways than we can list (but especially with free food and laundry)
