Generous merit scholarships and tuition grants are an important part of each student’s aid package. All students are encouraged to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to ensure access to Meredith, state, and federal assistance options.

Review the Enrollment Handbook 

Looking for information about advising, registration, or campus services? For new students beginning in January, you’ll find this information in the 2018 Spring Enrollment Handbook. For new students beginning in May or August, you'll find it in the 2018 Enrollment Handbook. Be sure to submit all required documents by their stated deadlines.

Complete your Academic Records

Upon completion of your senior year, request that your official transcript, AP, IB, dual credit and/or college transcript be sent to the Office of Admissions.

Attend New Student Orientation

After reserving your space for enrollment, mark your calendar for New Student Orientation. This multi-day event takes place prior to the first day of classes and includes important meetings with faculty and student advisors, opportunities to learn about campus resources, and events to help new students engage in the campus community.
