Congratulations on your acceptance to Meredith College. Below are next steps that will ensure a successful transition. We look forward to welcoming you to Meredith!
Consider this your invitation to get to know Meredith – virtually. Meet with your admissions and financial assistance counselors. Connect with a faculty member. Take a virtual tour of campus and the residence halls.
Scholarships and Financial Assistance
Meredith's Office of Financial Assistance coordinates over $50 million annually in merit and need-based awards. Our financial assistance staff is here to help you find ways to make college affordable. All students are encouraged to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for access to Meredith, state, and federal assistance options. Students transferring to Meredith College may be eligible for a variety of transfer scholarships.
Reserve Your Space
UPDATE: Due to the financial impact of COVID-19 on many families, the enrollment deposit has been adjusted to $175 (non-refundable). We hope this action allows you to take the next important step in your college choice. This adjustment is effective March 28, 2020.
Officially reserve your space in the class by submitting your $300 non-refundable deposit (plus a $5 processing fee for online payments).
Deposits for Spring 2020 should be submitted by December 1.
Deposits for Summer 2020 should be submitted by April 1.
Deposits for Fall 2020 should be submitted by June 15.
You can make a secure online payment through PayPal or by mailing a check or money order to the Office of Admissions, 3800 Hillsborough Street, Raleigh, NC 27607-5298. Cash is also accepted.
Review the Enrollment Handbook
You’ll find important information about housing, advising and course registration, and campus life in your enrollment handbook, which is mailed at the time of admission. For students beginning in January, you’ll find this information in the 2020 Spring Enrollment Handbook. For students beginning Meredith in May or August, you’ll find this information in the 2020 Fall Enrollment Handbook. Your timely submission of the required documents will ensure a smooth transition to Meredith.
Living on Campus – Submit Your Housing Request
Living on campus is a once in a life-time opportunity to build strong bonds and lasting friendships within the community. Submit your Housing Request after you’ve officially reserved your space in the class and no later than June 1. Requests made after June 1 are granted on a space available basis. Housing assignments are mailed in early July to students who have officially reserved their space in the class.
All new students under the age of 21 are required to live on campus for their first two years at Meredith unless commuting from the home of parents. Be sure to read page five of the Enrollment Handbook, browse Residence Life webpages, or reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more.
To request to commute while living in the home of parents, submit the Transfer Student Housing Request; all requests must be approved by the Dean of Students.
Complete your Academic Records
Upon completion of the semester, request that your official college transcript be sent to the Office of Admissions. Also, please be sure to submit official AP/IB scores if applicable.
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.
