First Steps

You did it—you’re #ButlerBound! After you receive your admission decision, these are your next steps in the enrollment process.

After Submitting Your Deposit

Once you’ve made things official, it’s time to start preparing for your first year on campus.

Before Your New Student Registration Advising Appointment

New Student Registration is an important milestone in the new student journey. During New Student Registration, you’ll have a virtual appointment with your academic advisor, schedule your first semester of classes, and learn more about your academic college. Your advising appointment will be held with the College of your primary major.

Students who submit the $500 enrollment deposit and have completed all required placement exams will have access to the New Student Registration process beginning in April 2024. Students must complete all required placement exams before an appointment can be scheduled.

Before Move-In

The summer before your first semester on campus will be a busy one. Make sure to regularly check your Butler email address as we will send you important reminders and tasks throughout the months leading up to Orientation.
