Step 1: Confirm Enrollment


Your deposit secures your place in the upcoming term. This $300 non-refundable deposit will be credited towards your first semester bill. Once your deposit has been processed, you will be able to sign up for campus housing and your first semester of classes. You can deposit online through your Status Page in the "Payment Due" section:

Step 2: Submit FAFSA

We encourage all students to submit a completed FAFSA, regardless of financial need. Your FAFSA helps us determine additional financial aid and scholarships you may be eligible for. Send your FAFSA to Wells to uncover more funding opportunities!

Step 3: Accept Financial Aid Pacakage

After you receive your letter of admission, you will also get a personalized financial aid package in the mail. This pacakage includes your Financial Aid Award letter, which details all scholarships, awards, grants, and other funding you are eligible for. Review and sign this letter to accept your financial aid package, then upload the signed Award Letter as a scanned document or clearly lit photo through your Status Page (under the "Upload Materials" section). You can also send it to the Admissions Office by postal mail. Remember to keep a copy for your records!
