Hello, Incoming students!

Get ready for Welcome Weekend at Anderson University! We look forward to having you with us and know our campus will never be the same because of the impact you’re going to have here. Let us help your transition to the AU campus community go smoothly.

Register for SOAR

After meeting with an advisor and registering for classes, students will receive their AU email log-in credentials. The log-in for your AU email is the same as your log-in for AccessAU. It’s important to regularly check both the email we have on file, and your AU email, for up-to-date information.

CAMPUS information

Send ID Photo

If you were not able to attend an in-person SOAR and have your picture taken for your student ID, use this link to send in a picture. Your image should be a headshot from the middle of your chest up to the top of your head in front of a plain white or beige wall indoors. Please do not wear hats or sunglasses in your photo.

Parking Pass

For students bringing a car to campus, we highly encourage you to purchase your parking pass online, prior to move-in. You can order online today and pick it up during Welcome Weekend (Hardacre Hall basement).

Working on Campus

For incoming students interested in working on campus, job openings will be available once the school year begins. Priority will be given to students who are eligible for Work Study. If you have any questions, please contact Pauletta Swank in Work-Life Engagement at pjswank@anderson.edu or (765) 641-4132.

Ordering Textbooks / Textbook Butler

All incoming students are automatically opted into the Textbook Butler program with a default preference for rental books (the most affordable). If you choose to opt out and purchase your books elsewhere, or would like to change your book preferences, click here

AccessAU is your “one-stop shop” student portal while at AU. It’s where you can check your class schedule, view financial aid, check your email, meal/Raven dollar balance, academic advising info, etc. You’ll receive your username and password after registering for classes.

Password Reset

Use this link if you are unable to log in to your AccessAU account or if you can’t remember your password. Your default password is Auxxxxxxxx (your birthday digits: MM/DD/YYYY). The password is case sensitive.

Free Office365

All AU undergraduate students can have a Microsoft Office 365 license at no cost! Click here for instructions.

Computer Recommendation

We recommend a Windows computer for most students, but you may choose to use Windows, Apple, or a Chromebook. Any option will work on the network. Click here to learn more.


Managing a campus email account is part of college life. You will be able to communicate with those on and off campus through your personal AU email account on RavenMail.

Financial aid 

Setting Up Payment Plans

We use Nelnet, our third party billing provider, for payment plans. Each month, the Business Office emails these electronic statements to students. The first bill will be sent out in July.

We encourage students to make trusted family members/guardians authorized users on their Nelnet account. If family members are authorized users, they will have their own log-in and will be able to view your student account, make payments, etc. For more information, you can contact our Business Office at studentaccounts@anderson.edu or visit them on our website.


Student Loans

All students must accept, reduce, or decline their student loans. This process will begin in early summer. Here are the steps:

  • Go to AccessAU.
  • Choose AccessAU Academics.
  • Choose Self-Service from the Menu.
  • Choose Student Center.
  • Under the Finances section, choose Accept/Decline Awards.
  • Choose the 2022 aid year.
  • Check the box to the right of the loan you wish to Accept/Reduce or Decline. If reducing, accept the loan and enter the amount you wish to borrow.
  • Click Submit.

For those accepting loans: Steps two and three are to complete Entrance Loan Counseling (ELC) and a Master Promissory Note (MPN) on StudentAid.gov. Students will need to log in with their FSA ID (FAFSA login credentials).
