Confirm Enrollment at PSU

We are so excited that you have chosen to attend Portland State University! Your next step is to confirm your enrollment by clicking "Confirm Enrollment" and following the instructions below:

Confirm Enrollment

Payment of a $200 nonrefundable tuition deposit is the first step in the enrollment process for newly admitted students. It 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 invoice. 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).

How to Confirm Your Enrollment

  1. Make sure you have created your student account. For instructions and help:
    1. Refer to the Activating Your Student Account website to complete this step online.
    2. Or you may call PSU’s Information Technology Help Desk at 503-725-HELP (4357).
  2. Go to the student account login page and sign in.
  3. Click the “Confirm Enrollment” button and follow the instructions.
  4. All new undergraduate freshmen or transfer students are required to pay a nonrefundable $200 tuition deposit to confirm a spot at PSU.

Students will receive an email from PSU as soon as their tuition deposit has processed in our system and they are able to sign up for Orientation.

If you have activated your PSU student account, all correspondence regarding enrollment will be sent to your email inbox. Please be sure to check your PSU email account regularly or have your PSU emails forwarded to your personal account.

Tuition Deposit Exemption Eligibility:

You are exempt from paying the $200 tuition deposit if one of the following statements is true:

  • When applying to PSU, you submitted the Application Fee Deferral form
  • You are an international student
  • You are currently or have ever served in the U.S. Armed Forces

If you do not meet the eligibility requirements above but would like to be considered for the tuition deposit exemption, please contact your admissions counselor.

Important Dates & Deadlines

Because students must submit the tuition deposit in order to sign up for Orientation, submitting it sooner will be more beneficial for selecting a preferred Orientation date. Please review the Orientation schedule to ensure you submit your deposit with enough time to sign up for and attend a session. Orientation sessions fill up quickly, so register as soon as you submit your tuition deposit.

For Students Enrolling in the Fall 2017 Term:

The tuition deposit priority deadline is May 1, 2017.

Students admitted after May 1, 2017, should pay the enrollment deposit as soon as possible to select their orientation date. Orientation sessions fill up quickly, so register as soon as you submit your tuition deposit.

All students are required to attend an Orientation where advisers for your intended major will be present. There will be several dates offered and you can begin viewing these in the early spring. Sessions fill quickly, but by submitting your tuition deposit as early as possible, you'll have more date options to choose from. Additionally, we offer several out of state orientation sessions in the early summer. If you are in from Hawaii or California you will see these options when you go to sign up. 

International Students

International undergraduate students are required to confirm their intent to enroll in order to sign up for Orientation, but will not be required to submit the $200 tuition deposit.

Admitted students who plan to enroll in the winter 2017 term should pay their tuition deposit as soon as possible. See the Orientation schedule for winter term. Not all sessions will display for every student, in order to view the sessions available to you, you must submit your tuition deposit and then login into the orientation system to view available sessions.

Payment Process

Payments are accepted online through your student account on Banweb. Only Visa and MasterCard are accepted. Your deposit will be applied to your first term tuition and will appear as a credit on your first tuition invoice.
