Follow these steps to successfully enroll in your graduate program.

You've been accepted to one of the graduate programs at Cardinal Stritch University. We're confident the experience will be academically and professionally stimulating for you. But what's next? Here’s a list of things to be aware of to ensure a smooth transition to becoming a Stritch student.

1. Submit Your Tuition Deposit


Confirm your admission by submitting your tuition deposit. The deposit is  $100 for students who commute and is refundable until May 1.You can pay the deposit in the following ways:

  • Pay online through our secure site. Your Stritch student ID number (found on your acceptance letter) is your login. Please contact your  admission counselor with any questions.
  • Mail  a check, payable to Cardinal Stritch University, to the Office of Graduate Admissions.
  • Contact the Business Office at (414) 410-4232 and pay your deposit by using a credit or debit card.

2. File Your Financial Aid Documentation


Our Financial Aid Office will work with you to reduce the financial barriers to continuing your education. Finding out your financial aid eligibility begins by filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This will determine the amount you can reasonably afford to pay toward your higher education costs. 

3. Speak With Your Program Advisor


Each graduate program has a program advisor that will help you register for classes. The contact information for your advisor will be included in your acceptance package.

4.  Attend Graduate Program Orientation


Our Graduate Program Orientation provides an opportunity to meet your fellow classmates and faculty, finalize any enrollment processes, and learn more about the expectations for your graduate program.  Orientations for graduate studies are specific to each graduate program.  If your program of study includes an orientation session, details will be communicated to you directly by your admissions counselor.
