What's Next?

Housing

If you're required to live on campus, you will need to make sure to apply for housing before you can register for classes. Head to MyHousing to get started. You can find it in the Dining and Housing section of MyFSU.

Billing

You will find your student bill in MyFSU. Whenever an updated statement is issued, you will be notified at your Ferris email address. If you want others (like your family) to have access to billing notifications, statements and to make payments, make sure to add them as an authorized user in the E-bill section of MyFSU.

Your Student ID

Your Ferris ID has superpowers. Not only does it give you the ability to check out books, attend events, and access the rec center, among other parts of campus, it also unlocks student discounts at local businesses. You can pick up your ID when you check-in at your residence hall or (if you live off-campus) at the Timme Center.

Answers to Your Most Common Questions

  •  How do I pay my orientation fee?

    You will find info on paying orientation fee in the online orientation. You can also find more information here.

    Not ready to pay? No worries! You can add your orientation fee to your first semester bill.

  •  Can I park on campus?

    You are eligible to have a motor vehicle on campus, as long you register it with our Department of Public Safety. To register your vehicle, visit MyFSU, choose the “University Life” tab, then “Vehicle Registration.” You will need your on-campus housing assignment (if living on campus) or your address (if you live off campus), a valid driver’s license number, and a current vehicle registration.
