Enrollment Deposit

Enrollment Deposit Payment: Applies to Summer and Fall 2023 semesters and later.

We are excited that you are committing to Utah State University and look forward to having you join the Aggie family!

All incoming undergraduate students pay a nonrefundable $200 Enrollment Deposit to confirm their intent to enroll. This allows the university to project the right amount of classes and resources for the coming year.

Paying the Enrollment Deposit

  • Allows you to begin orientation and register for classes once those processes open
  • Accepts USU scholarships offered by the Admissions Office
  • Secures your spot at USU
  • Allows you to sign a contract for on-campus housing on a first-come, first-served basis

$200 Enrollment Deposit

  • $150 prepayment of tuition and fees for your first semester
  • $50 New Student Services fee
  • Both of the above are applied to your first semester bill

Exceptions to the Enrollment Deposit

Some students do not need to pay the enrollment deposit:

  • Students who have already earned a bachelor’s degree or higher.
  • Non-degree seeking and workforce development students.
  • Students pursuing only a technical education (TE) certificate.
  • Veterans using chapter 31 or 33 VA benefits.*
  • Students using Vocational Rehab to pay for schooling.*
  • NCAA athletes who have signed an athletic aid agreement.*

*Veterans, vocational rehab recipients, and NCAA athletes with an athletics aid agreement should submit the deposit postponement form. A $50 new student services fee will be added to the first semester’s bill.

Postponing the Deposit for Financial Hardship

We are committed to providing access to our incoming students. A deposit postponement, granted in cases of financial hardship, allows you to confirm your enrollment without paying the deposit. If you are approved to postpone, you will pay the deposit as part of your first bill after your financial aid has been disbursed. A $50 new student services fee will be added to the first semester bill. To request to postpone your deposit, complete the online form below. Note: international students are not able to postpone their deposit.

Enrollment Deposit Priority Deadline

Paying your deposit prior to the priority deadline gives you early access to sign a contract for on-campus housing, which is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Sign a contract early. On-campus housing fills quickly and spaces are not guaranteed. The priority deadline is also the date by which you need to begin orientation so you can be ready to register for classes on the day registration opens.

Summer/Fall Priority Deposit Deadline: April 1
Spring Priority Deposit Deadline: Nov 1

Confirm your Intent to Enroll in a Future Semester (Defer Admission)

If you plan to begin as a new student at USU in a future semester, you have the option to pay the Enrollment Deposit (nonrefundable) now, which will streamline your enrollment in the future. Otherwise, you can pay it prior to your first semester.

Scholarship Acceptance

By paying or postponing your deposit, or deferring your admission to a future term, you are also accepting any scholarships offered by USU Admissions and their associated terms. Please email scholarships@usu.edu with any questions.
