Next steps for first-year and transfer undergraduate

Below are the steps for you to complete!

Let us know if you are joining the Saint Martin’s family! Log in to your your status page and select your admission decision.

Note: Completing the $200 enrollment deposit confirms your place in the incoming class. The priority deposit deadline for the Fall and Summer semester is May 1 and November 1 for the spring semester. Deposits are only refundable up to the priority deposit deadlines.

You may submit your deposit using any of the following options:

  • Submit your housing contract and $200 damage deposit by July 1 (housing damage deposit is non-refundable after Aug. 1)

  • If you qualify, you can submit your housing exemption request (must meet off-campus qualifications listed on form, and select off-campus on the form)

  • Housing assignments will be made and your room number will be sent to you in an email in the middle of July

Whether you are going to use scholarships, financial aid, military benefits, or any combination of these forms of payment, here are the resources/forms you may need:

  • Check your financial aid award on the Student Aid Portal. You will need your student ID number (contact us if you need it) and then create your own PIN# to log in. 
  • Not planning to do a financial aid application? Submit your FAFSA waiver form.
  • Using military benefits? Submit your VA paperwork to the Office of the Registrar at registrar@cason-family.net

To fully understand your financial aid award and ask about any additional available scholarships, sign up for a financial aid talk with your admission counselor.

Need to submit your financial aid documents? Upload any financial aid documents to The Office of Financial Aid Dropbox.

After submitting your deposit(s), please allow at least one week to receive your official Saint Martin's email account (e.g., firstname.lastname@cason-family.net) from our ITS Help Desk labeled “Saint Martin’s network email account”. Check your Junk Mail too as the email sometimes gets sidetracked there. Once you have received your email account, log in and change your password as all official University notifications will be sent to this email.

If you have not received an email address after two weeks, please contact your admission counselor or the ITS Help Desk at help@cason-family.net.

Students who do not meet the exceptions need to complete all placements prior to orientation.

  • English - once you have paid your deposit, you will receive instructions about orientation, advising and registration. During that time the writing sample will be coordinated.
