Welcome: New Students
You've been admitted to the University of Utah. Now what?
Create or login to your Campus Information Services (CIS) account.
If you are a new student, log in to cis.utah.edu using the university ID (UNID) included in your admissions letter and default password (which is your birthdate in MMDDYY format). Here is where you will register for classes, pay tuition, view grades, and more.
Returning students, log in to cis.utah.edu to view your UMail and update your Campus Information Services (CIS) account. Official U communications will go to your UMail.
Learn about and apply for scholarships and financial aid.
Fill out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for grants, loans, and work-study. Visit financialaid.utah.edu to learn more. Visit scholarships.utah.edu to apply for scholarship opportunities. Deadlines and requirements will vary.
Confirm your intent to enroll.
To save your spot at the U, confirm your intent to enroll and pay the non-refundable $300 enrollment deposit. The deposit counts toward your first-semester tuition. If the deposit is a financial burden, you may be eligible for an Enrollment Deposit Extension.
Visit admissions.utah.edu/confirm for more information on the Enrollment Deposit, as well as extension requests.
Register for orientation.
Once you've confirmed your intent to enroll, register for the UOnline orientation, where you'll receive information about online learning and get connected with an academic advisor so you can register for classes.
Submit proof of immunizations.
Even if you never intend to come to campus, submission of immunization records is required of all University of Utah students. Learn more about the Immunization Requirements.
Online courses are held in Canvas. Instructors may open classes prior to the first day of the term, but most will make them "live" at the start of the semester. Be sure to review the course syllabus for key pieces of information, such as how to get in touch with the instructor and deadlines for exams and assignments.
Pay tuition and fees.
Visit the calendar on the Registrar’s Office site to determine course dates and the tuition deadline. You may pay online through the CIS portal.
