Freshmen Next Steps After Acceptance

You've been admitted, congratulations! Complete our enrollment checklist and get one step closer to becoming a CMU Chippewa!

    Paying your enrollment reservation deposit lets us know you’re coming so we can save your spot in the incoming class.

    Log in to your applicant portal using the same username and password you created for your application. Once you log in, you’ll see your admission letter and have access to some of your next steps, including submitting your enrollment deposit.

    Submit my deposit

    Next, you’ll need to set up your CMU account that includes your new email. Use your “New CMU Account PIN” found at the bottom of your congratulations letter (you can also find it under the “Next Steps” section after logging in below) to get started.

    We recommend setting your account as soon as you submit your deposit. You'll need it for almost everything, including:

    • Receiving your student ID card.
    • Creating your student email account.
    • Viewing and accepting your financial aid package.
    • Registering for classes.
    • Applying for housing.

    Your email account is also where we'll send all your important next steps information, like when to sign up for orientation and when you're ready for housing.

    What comes next

    Now that you've submitted or deferred your deposit, you're ready to tackle orientation, housing and more! Don't worry, we'll walk you through everything so you always know what your next steps are.
