Congratulations, you've been admitted! Here are the next steps you need to take before your first semester.

Next Steps Checklist

Transfers are required to pay an Enrollment Confirmation Deposit (ECD) of $150 May 1st in order to accept your offer of admission. The deposit will be applied to your tuition. For payment options, visit Cashiering Services.
Note: The ECD is non-transferable and non-refundable.

The ECD can be waived if you are receiving state or federal need-based grants or full financial assistance. If you qualify for the waiver, you must still accept your admissions offer. You qualify for the waiver if:

  • Your financial aid includes Pell Grant, and/or Cal Grant or
  • Your Federal Student Aid Report includes an Expected Family Contribution of $5,576 or less or
  • You qualify for an Athletic Scholarship. 

For detailed instructions on how to pay, review the ECD Tutorial

Advanced Placement (AP)

  • Official college transcripts that include your AP scores can be used to receive credit.
  • You can also send scores online through College Board if scores are not indicated on your college transcripts. Please note, if your last AP exam was taken over four years ago, College Board has archived your scores which means scores can only be sent via mail. If your scores have been archived, please request them from College Board as early as possible to ensure timely receipt of official scores.
