Congratulations on your admission to Towson University. If you're still considering your college choices, we’re happy to help you decide if TU is right for you.
We encourage you to visit campus again. Get in touch with a counselor or the department for your planned major and ask tough questions. Come out for a game or a concert and feel the energy of our campus for yourself. Stop by the University Store and stock up on Tiger swag. Take a tour of the area and see why Baltimore is one of the top college towns in the country.
When you’re ready to accept your offer of admission, just complete the following steps. We look forward to seeing you.
1. Submit your Enrollment Contract and fee.
To officially accept our offer of admission, submit your Enrollment Contract and $300 enrollment fee to University Admissions by May 1 for fall admission, Dec. 1 for spring admission, or two weeks after you receive your offer of admission, whichever is later. We recommend that you mail your Enrollment Contract at the post office and request a certificate of mailing.
2. Activate your Towson University email account.
Towson will communicate with you using your TU student computing and email account, also referred to as your NetID. To get started, simply activate your NetID online. To complete the process, you will need your seven-digit TU student ID number, which you can find on your Offer of Admission letter.
3. Submit your housing request.
New freshmen for fall are guaranteed a space in on-campus housing if housing is reserved by 5:00 p.m. EST on May 1. Secure your spot by submitting the online request form and $350 non-refundable housing deposit.
Housing for the spring term is awarded on a space-available basis. You can find out if housing is available by logging on to the Department of Housing and Residence Life’s online housing request system. If space is available, you can secure your spot by submitting the request form and $350 non-refundable housing deposit.
There are two additional on-campus residence halls for freshmen—Paca House and Tubman House—located in the university’s West Village complex. These housing options require a separate application. If you’re interested in Paca House or Tubman House, apply online at the West Village housing website.
If you have any questions about university housing, please contact the Department of Housing and Residence Life at 410-704-2516.
4. Determine if your major is screened.
If you know what you want to study, it’s important that you determine if it is a screened or competitive program, as admission to TU does not guarantee admission to some majors. Screened or competitive majors have additional requirements, such as auditions, prerequisite courses or minimum GPAs. Knowing these requirements in advance will prepare you during the enrollment and registration process.
Contact the major department or consult the Undergraduate Catalog for more information on screened or competitive majors.
5. Complete items on your Freshman To-Do List
After you've accepted our offer of admission, you should visit the Freshman To-Do List Website and complete all required tasks. This website will provide important information to help your transition to college life, including details about parking on campus, getting your OneCard ID, registering for classes, and more.
