First-Year Student Registration 2017



Just decided to become a Class of 2021 Gustie? Congrats!

Welcome to Gustavus! You are now part of a wonderful family and proud tradition. Here is your 2017 Enrollment Checklist. You will notice that many of the dates have passed. That is OK! Here are the things you want to do:

  • Complete your online Housing Preference form as soon as possible.
  • Please call Wendy Bachman of the Admission Office (507-933-7676) to make an Alternative Registration Date to sign up for your fall classes with a faculty advisor as soon as possible. Your appointment can be via phone or you can come to campus. You will want to be prepared for this appointment by reading all the registration packet materials found here (and also mailed to you).
  • Follow the 2017 First-Year Student Registration Process checklist using the resources below and with these alterations:
  • Choose Liberal Arts Curriculum or Three Crowns Curriculum: the online form is closed but be prepared for your appointment with your selection. If you choose Liberal Arts Curriculum (most common), then look through the 2017 First-Term Seminar Selection Descriptions to find a few seminars (some seminars may already be filled) that interest you so you are prepared to make this choice during your registration as well. 
  • Placement Exams: make sure you do these. These online tests are explained and available via the links below. You will need these results if you want to take certain classes.
  • Complete the Forms Packet (see below).
  • Activate your Gustavus Email if you haven't (see below)!

Again, thank you so much for choosing Gustavus! Please let us know if you have any questions.

Did you know that you can find your Gustavus student ID# located in your Admission Packet or on your Financial Aid Award Letter?  This is a great number for you to memorize!  You will have your photo taken during a summer visit or Fall Orientation and will receive your ID card when you arrive on campus or soon after.
