Information for First Year Students


Starting each June, new students receive a series of cyber orientation emails from the FYP throughout the summer sharing information about registering for fall courses, housing, move-in day, orientation, and matriculation. Those messages are archived below. Please also keep an eye on your SLU email and the application status portal after May 1.

New Transfer students, please contact the Student Activities office for more information, but feel free to check out our messages, as lots of what we share about move-in day and orientation is useful for you, too.
