Payment of a $200 nonrefundable tuition deposit is the first step in the enrollment process for newly admitted undergraduate students.
Enrollment confirmation is required for students to register for New Student Orientation, secure a PSU ID card and register for classes. The tuition deposit will appear as a credit on a student’s first tuition bill. Financially eligible students are exempt from paying the $200 tuition deposit, but must still confirm they are coming to PSU prior to signing up for Orientation (see below for eligibility requirements). International undergraduate students are required to confirm their enrollment in order to sign up for Orientation, but will not be required to submit the $200 tuition deposit, see below for more information.
All new undergraduate freshmen and transfer students are required to pay a nonrefundable $200 tuition deposit to confirm enrollment at PSU.
The priority deadline to confirm enrollment is June 1.
