What's Next?



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.


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 and other important parts of campus, it also unlocks student discounts at local businesses. You can pick up your ID at MyBulldog Service Center in the University Center.
