Congratulations on Becoming a Saint!

Now that you have been accepted at Our Lady of the Lake University, here are your next steps:

Check your Application Status Page regularly. This is where you will find your acceptance letter and credentials to access “Self-Service” to view your financial aid and scholarship status. If you have not applied for financial aid and plan to do so, you should complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)  as soon as possible.

1. Getting Started

Your temporary password and more information on this step are available on your Application Status  page.

The $100 deposit will be applied to your tuition bill after you attend an advising and registration appointment. The deposit is required before you can complete the next steps.

Pay your Deposit

After completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and submitting it to OLLU, be on the look out for your Financial Aid Award letter from the OLLU Financial Aid Office. Once you have received your award, set up an appointment to review your award and have your questions answered.

Contact the Admissions Office to set up an appointment:

Please Note: The U.S. Department of Education completely overhauled the 2024-2025 FAFSA causing significant delays in universities and colleges receiving FAFSA files. This is causing delays in presenting financial aid packages. Additional informtion is available at this link .

Deposited students will receive an email from the Advising Office with their course schedule based on general education and major requirements. If schedule changes are needed, please set up an advising/registration appointment. To request an appointment, please contact the office. Be prepared to share with your adviser information about any dual credit or AP courses you have taken.

OLLU requires all students to have health insurance and places the fee for student health insurance on the student bill. Students who have their own health insurance can remove the fee from their bill by providing proof of insurance and waiving the OLLU-provided insurance. Instructions are available on the OLLU Health Services web page.

This step will be available through the “Student Finance" link in the “Self-Service ” (requires your OLLU username and password) section.
