    Review your financial aid offer

    Starting in April, your Financial Aid Offer will be mailed to your home. This offer will outline any scholarships, grants, and loans that you have been offered. It will also highlight important information (like books are included in your cost of tuition!) plus it will provide an estimate of your cost to attend Ursuline for your first year. A digital copy of your offer will also be added to your Admitted Student Portal.

    Prior to your official financial aid offer in April, admitted students are also able to complete an Ursuline-specific FAFSA Estimator. This is a great options for students and families who may want an aid estimate in February/March. If you need access to Ursuline's FAFSA Estimator, reach out to Emily Haggerty at

    If you have questions about your offer, be sure to reach out to your admission counselor to schedule a call. 

    Attend Admitted Student Day on April 13th

    Ursuline is offering one Admitted Student Day this year. Join us on Saturday, April 13th! RSVP for Admitted Student Day. 

    Submit your deposit by May 1

    Ready to officially become an Arrow? Submit your deposit! Ursuline’s deposit deadline is May 1st. After May 1st, deposits will be accepted as space allows but are no longer refundable.  For any students who may need an extension to Ursuline's deposit deadline, please reach out to your personal admission counselor. Ursuline is happy to provide flexibility to anyone who may need it. 

    Your deposit kicks off your access to inside Ursuline information. You will get your Ursuline email, hear about Academic Advising so you can schedule classes for the fall, learn about housing options, be invited to incoming-student-only events to meet your future classmates, and more! 

    Deposits can be submitted at For students living on-campus, the deposit fee is $200.00. For commuters, the deposit fee is $100.00. Once you enroll, your deposit fee is credited to your Ursuline account and will become a credit on your first invoice. If your deposit fee creates an undue burden for your family, please contact your Admission Counselor to discuss alternatives.  

    Access your new Ursuline email & accounts 

    Once you deposit your Ursuline student account will be created, including your Ursuline student email! Login instructions will be emailed to you by Ursuline’s IT department, approximately 48 hours after your deposit is processed. While the Admission Office will be primarily communicating to you using your personal email account, you will find important campus updates and Ursuline insider-information in your Ursuline email. Over the summer, be sure to check both accounts. 

    RSVP for your preferred Summer Advising and Registration Day

    Dying to schedule your classes?? Of course you are! Students will meet with their academic advisor during their Summer Advising & Registration Days. Summer Advising & Registration Days are planned to occur in-person and space is limited for each date, so don't wait to RSVP! Event registration will go live in late spring/early summer.

    Complete the New Student Online Experience (NSOE) 

    The New Student Online Experience (NSOE) is your virtual introduction to Ursuline College. This online course will serve as a resource to all things Ursuline. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself referencing the NSOE all throughout your first year (and second year… and third year…).  

    The NSOE covers relevant information to a successful start at Ursuline. Completion of the NSOE is required for all incoming students and a certificate of completion is required to begin classes. The course will take about 2.5 hours to complete but it is designed to be viewed in pieces. No need to do everything all at once!

    We recommend completing the NSOE before you attend Summer Orientation.

    If selected, complete your math placement test (ALEKS)

    Some students will be required to complete a math placement test before attending Summer Orientation. This test is called ALEKS. If selected, you will receive instructions via email. This placement test will allow your academic advisor to select the best first-year math class for you. 

    Send in your final official transcript for any CCP/Dual Enrollment classes, IB diploma, and/or AP exam scores

    Submit an updated copy of your transcripts, or Advanced Placement (AP) exam results to the Processing Center ( so that your advisor has the most up-to-date information. To see if a transfer credit evaluation is complete, log into your Admitted Student Portal

    Feel free to start course transfer equivalents at For an unofficial Ursuline credit evaluation, schedule a call with your UC admissions Counselor. 

    Attend you Summer Advising and Registration Day

    You will learn SO MUCH important information during Summer Orientation. You'll meet your future classmates and connect with current students. Last but not least, bring your questions! This is the perfect opportunity to talk more about your major and any goals you may have for your time at Ursuline (and beyond!). 

    P.S. Be sure you're photo ready! Your student ID photo will be taken during your Summer Orientation.

    Registration will go live for these dates in early May. 

    Send in your final high school transcripts to the Processing Center

    Official transcripts must be sent directly from your high school to Ursuline and can be mailed to Ursuline, attn: Processing Center or emailed to To check the status of your high school transcript, log into your Admitted Student Portal

    Submit your housing survey & contract before June 1, if living on campus

    As a resident student, you’ll quickly come to appreciate all of the reasons that residence hall living enhances your college experience. Resident students access outstanding leadership opportunities, live in proximity to each other, their professors, and the plethora of campus resources available to support your success at Ursuline. Socially, the Ursuline atmosphere is empowering and engaging. You’ll be right in the middle of all the excitement! To check your official housing preference (resident or commuter), log into your Admitted Student Portal

    Additionally, your housing contract, roommate survey, and more from the Residence Life and Housing Office will be sent to you after your housing status has been assessed. This review happens closer to when you'll begin classes, typically May, and you will be notified of housing availability via email. In order to begin the housing process, you must submit your deposit before the Priority Housing Deadline of June 1, 2024. Housing assignments will be announced in late.

    Admitted Student FAQs

    Below are some frequently asked questions specifically from admitted students, but for our full list of FAQs, click here. If there are any other details that you would like to know more about, feel free to contact your personal admission counselor.

    What are my options for getting to know Ursuline as I prepare to make my decision?

    Come visit us on campus! Whether you’ve been to campus already or not, visiting as an admitted student allows you to see the school as your future home. Attend our Admitted Student Day, or schedule a personal visit to campus! If coming to campus isn’t an option, we have a number of virtual events over the next few months that you can attend to learn more about Ursuline.

    When do I need to accept my admission offer by?

    Let us know that you want to become an Ursuline arrow by May 1st by submitting your deposit. After May 1st, we will accept deposits as space allows, but deposits are no longer refundable after that point.

    Are books really included?

    One huge perk to being an Ursuline student is that all of your textbooks rentals are covered in your cost of tuition! That means that you don’t have to buy your books, saving you thousands of dollars! You’ll order your books through Ursuline’s bookstore after you have scheduled your classes with your academic advisor. This is something you’ll learn more about during your New Student Orientation Experience.

    When do I get my schedule?

    The first step is to RSVP for your preferred Summer Orientation date. On your RSVP form, you will answer some pre-advising questions so your Academic Advisor is ready for your first meeting. During Summer Orientation, you will meet with your advisor and finalize your class schedule. 

    Will I have to live on campus?

    No! Students can live on-campus or commute.

    Can I have a car on campus?

    Yes! All students are allowed to have cars on campus.

    Will my AP/CCP credits transfer to Ursuline?

    Many AP and CCP credits will transfer in as Ursuline credits! Reach out to your Admission Counselor if you’d like to request a transfer credit evaluation or visit

    How do I log into my Ursuline student portal?

    Once Ursuline receives your deposit, your Ursuline student account will be created! Our IT department will send you an email once your deposit is processed with your login instructions, including your student e-mail address and password. Once you have that e-mail, remember to check it regularly for information about next steps!

    What does my meal plan include? 

    Meal plans are part of the housing contract for students who live on campus. It includes 175 meal swipes and 325 aux points. Meal swipes are used for full meals, while aux points can be used like dollars to buy pre-packaged items on campus. You will hear more about Metz Dining and our meal plans during your New Student Orientation Experience, or through your MyUrsuline account.

    Who do I contact if I want to change my major?

    If you selected a major on your application that you no longer want to pursue, you will want to let your Admission Counselor know as soon as possible so that you can be assigned an appropriate Academic Advisor.

    Where can I access my financial aid information?

    Your Financial Aid package will be delivered by mail and e-mail. Once you submit your deposit and receive information for your Ursuline student account, you will be able to view and pay bills through your MyUrsuline account. Grants and scholarships will be applied to your student account automatically, but in order to receive the student loans you were offered, you will need to complete student loan counseling, which you’ll learn more about during your New Student Orientation. Feel free to contact our Student Services Center at 440-646-8309, or visit our Financial Aid FAQ page if you have specific questions.

    I'm having issues accessing MyUrsuline - who should I reach out to for help?

    You will want to be in touch with Ursuline’s IT department. You can e-mail them at; make sure to include your name, phone number, and a description of the problem you are experiencing.

    What kind of laptop is best?

    While Ursuline’s IT department doesn’t recommend any specific computer model, they do offer the following guidance for students who are shopping for a laptop to bring to Ursuline:

     - A core i5 processor (or core i7 processor if you can afford it)
     - Minimum of 8 GB of memory (more, if possible)
     - A solid state hard drive of at least 120 GBs

    For most students, our IT team also advises against buying a Chromebook or a Mac. Windows based computers typically have fewer issues than either of these.

    Am I able to test-out of any of the required courses?

    Test-Outs are available to students who took a course at a non-accredited institution, or who took a course that didn't transfer into Ursuline College that relates to the subject, and students with substantial knowledge of a subject. All currently enrolled, degree-seeking students are eligible to test out of authorized courses, as long as the test-out is taken before their final semester. If you want to test out of a course, refer to out Test-out Policy and Procedure, and talk to your academic advisor.

    Who can I contact if I have an IEP/need accommodations?

    If you would like to request disability-related accommodations, please contact our Disability Specialist at
