When is the enrollment fee deadline?
ESU offers rolling admission. Students should plan to submit their enrollment fee as soon as possible to have the best schedule and housing options, but no later than May 15. Students admitted after May 15 should submit their enrollment fee no later than two weeks after the date on the offer of admission.
How do I pay the enrollment fee?
Once you are offered admission, follow the instructions to pay your enrollment fee. We suggest you pay the enrollment fee as soon as you have decided to enroll at ESU.
