Welcome New Bulldogs!

Welcome New Bulldogs!

Congratulations on your acceptance to Ferris!

We're so glad you're here! We can't wait to help you get started on your journey at Ferris.

There are just a few steps left to make sure you're ready for your first class.

1. Setup Your MyFSU Account

MyFSU is our hub for all things Ferris. You'll do everything from register for classes to pay your tuition on MyFSU. Your first job as a new Bulldog is to setup your account. Head to the account setup page and follow the three simple steps.

You will need your student ID number. You can find it on the official acceptance letter we sent to you in the mail.

Once you have logged into MyFSU, make sure to check your new Ferris email. You'll find a link to login on the homepage of MyFSU. Use the username (followed by @ferris.edu) and password you just set up to login.

Your Ferris email is the only place we will send important information to you electronically. Make sure to check it often!

2. Complete New Student Orientation

Orientation will give you all of the information you need to be successful at Ferris. From buying your books to getting your student ID card, orientation has you covered. All off-campus and online students can complete orientation entirely online.

You must complete orientation before you register for classes. Please give us approximately one business day to clear your orientation hold so you can register. Head to the orientation portal to get started now!

3. Meet Your Advisor

If you haven't already, make sure to schedule an appointment with your advisor. We can't stress enough how important it is to meet with your advisor before registering for each semester. Even a quick chat on the phone can help keep you on track and ensure that you're taking the right classes at the right time. Schedule your appointment now!

4. Check Your Financial Aid

If you're planning on receiving any type of financial aid, you will want to make sure it is in order as soon as possible. If you haven't completed your FAFSA yet, now is the time! Many financial aid opportunities, such as scholarships and grants, are awarded to students on a first-come, first-served basis. Head to our Financial Aid page to learn more.

If you are paying your tuition out of pocket, you will need to make sure you're on a payment plan or have paid in full before our deadlines or you risk being dropped from your classes!

Will you be taking classes at your local community college as a part of your Ferris program? If so, you will need to submit a consortium form. You can learn all about the consortium process here. Don't forget to apply to your community college as well!

5. Register for Classes

This is the big one! Now that you have setup your MyFSU account, completed orientation, met with your advisor and confirmed your financial aid, it's time to fill your schedule with classes. Head to MyRegistration on MyFSU to get begin registration.

Crafting the perfect class schedule is an art you'll master quickly. Check out this helpful guide to get started.
