Now for your next steps. The Gustavus Enrollment Timeline is available AND is mailed to students shortly after they pay their enrollment deposit, beginning in mid-March. It lists each important mailing and email that you will receive from Gustavus over the spring and summer.
Create Your Account

Step 1: Create Your Gustavus User Account
In order to complete important processes before starting in the Fall of 2021, like requesting housing and registering for classes, you must first create your Gustavus User Account. You received an email from Gustavus Technology Services (GTS) the day after we received your enrollment deposit with your account creation instructions.

Step 2: Start the Enrollment Checklist
Once you create and activate your Gustavus User Account, go to the Enrollment Checklist. You will use the Enrollment Checklist to request housing, submit your registration preferences, and keep track of other important details prior to arriving at Gustavus.

Class Registration

Beginning May 17, incoming deposited students will be mailed a Registration Packet. The packet includes instructions on how to submit the online Registration Preference form, as well as information about taking placement exams, submitting AP and/or IB scores, submitting PSEO/CIS transcripts, and using the Advising & Registration Manual (ARM). The following items will be included in the packet:

2021 Submitting Registration Preferences 

2021 First Term Seminar (FTS) Selection 

2021 Three Crowns Curriculum Information 

2021 Advising and Registration Manual 


After you receive your Registration Packet in mid-May, please go to your Gustavus Enrollment Checklist to complete and submit your Registration Preference form prior to June 4.

Hint: Watch the Submitting Your Registration Preferences video for helpful tips on submitting the Registration Preference form.

The information that you provide on your Registration Preference form will be used by a Gustavus advisor to create your class schedule, so be sure to take the time to really tell us about your own academic interests. The form will likely take you 20-30 minutes to complete. Questions? Visit the our New Student Registration page or contact the Academic Support Center at
