1. Accept Your Offer

Contact your admissions counselor and tell them you are ready to accept your offer. This will reserve your spot in the incoming class.

You can also make the $200 deposit, allowing you to proceed with the registration process. The deposit is not an extra fee. It is credited toward your student billing account for next semester. You can complete your deposit by logging into your TMU account. If you plan to live on-campus, you will also pre-pay a $300 housing deposit in April.

2. Apply For Financial Aid

Your initial financial aid package is just the beginning. This package is based on your admissions application, which typically includes your GPA, test scores (SAT, ACT, or CLT), and FAFSA information if you completed it.

If you have not yet completed the FAFSA, most U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens are eligible for financial aid for college or career school. Complete yours free at www.fafsa.ed.gov with TMU’s Federal School Code 001220. The FAFSA is for outside aid, like state and federal aid.

You can also apply for additional TMU scholarships now. See financial aid for a list of academic, athletic, music, ministry, and other specialized aid. Keep a close eye on deadlines!

Your TMU scholarships often stack together and are added to your outside aid to enhance your personalized scholarship package. Contact your admissions counselor if you would like to see examples or ask for help with these.

3. Visit The Campus

Book your visit today. We can’t wait to meet you!

A personalized campus visit will show you TMU in all of its wonderful dimensions during the semester. You’ll experience the energy of our classrooms, hear the power of our chapel service, interact with current students, and meet with the right staff members to have your questions answered.

4. Pre-Register (Opens in March)

Pre-Registration When you pre-register, you complete details and forms to ensure you’re ready to go for the next steps. This includes health insurance, emergency contact information, billing plan options, and other details.

5. Housing Deposit & Enroll into Classes (Opens April)

Housing Deposit Select your housing preferences and details! Additionally, only if you intend to live in on-campus housing, TMU is offering priority housing this year on a first-come, first-served basis due to high demand. New students must pre-pay a $300 non-refundable housing deposit to secure on-campus housing. The housing deposit is not an extra fee; it is applied towards your first housing bill. The housing deposit is separate from the $200 tuition deposit. Once housing is full, late registrations will be placed on a waitlist and offered off-campus or alternative housing, if available. If you plan to live off-campus, complete your pre-registration and select your housing preferences, and you will not be requested to complete a housing deposit. Class selections are not affected. All students can enroll in classes without completing a housing deposit, but enrolling in classes does not guarantee on-campus housing.
