After You've Been Admitted

As a First-Time College Student

 
1. Get Your Student ID Number

You will receive a nine-digit “900” Student ID number in your acceptance email and letter. You can also get your student ID number from the Office of Admissions.

2. Login to the Student Hub

Visit My First Login for instructions on how to get your NetID and PIN. Then head over to the Student Hub where you will use this information to login and access web services such as student email, registration, class schedules, financial aid, and other services you may need in the future.

3. Attend Orientation

First-time college students are required to attend New Student Orientation before registering for classes. 

4. Meet Your Advisor and Register for Classes

Students who attend an on-campus Orientation session will receive advising and register for classes at that time. First-time college students must meet with an academic advisor to plan their academic path.

5. Apply for Financial Aid and Scholarships

Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by using MSU Denver’s school code 001360. MSU Denver also offers a variety of scholarships which are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis or based on academics, achievement and financial need.

  • Undocumented and DACA students should complete the DREAMer Application for Institutional Aid (DAIA) to apply for institutional financial support.
6. Authorize the College Opportunity Fund Stipend

Colorado resident students qualify for a College Opportunity Fund (COF) stipend which will pay for a portion of in-state tuition by completing the online COF application. After you register for your first semester classes, complete the one-time COF stipend authorization to have it applied to your tuition.

7. Get Your Books, Supplies, and Student ID Card

Purchase books and supplies at Tivoli Station, formerly Auraria Campus Bookstore. Secure your Student ID card in Tivoli, Room 205. Items needed: $22 (cash or credit/debit), a valid photo ID and a copy of your class schedule.

8. Pay Your Tuition

Pay tuition and fees via the Student Hub (see step 2) or at the Cashier’s Office located in the Student Success Building, Room 140, by 5 p.m. on the Friday before classes begin.

All students should carefully review and complete any necessary steps regarding Health Insurance Requirements and Immunization Requirements.
