Your Steps to Fall 2019 Enrollment
Have you made the decision that ESU is where YOU belong? The following information provides the essential details you need for a smooth start to your ESU education.
1) Accept Offer of Admission
To reserve your seat at ESU, submit your $300 new student enrollment fee as soon as you are sure you intend to enroll.
- Note: Early submission is recommended for priority course registration and optimal on-campus housing options. Visit the enrollment fee page to submit the fee. Log in with your ESU student ID Number (provided on your offer of admission email and letter) and your birth date as your six-digit PIN. (For example, if your birth date is July 5, 1999, use 070599). Once you log in, select the "Student and Staff" tab and follow the instructions. Need help? Visit instructions for enrollment step-by-step assistance.
Enrollment fee deadlines
- Fall 2019: Two weeks from the date of your official offer of admission (sent via US mail). After May 1, 2019, the fee is non-refundable.
2) Activate Your ESU Email Account
