If you attended SOAR, your student ID will be provided to you on move-in day. If you were unable to attend an in-person SOAR, it’ll be imperative to have your picture taken and ID created on move-in day. Don’t worry, there will be built-in time to have that done!
For students bringing a car to campus, we highly encourage you to purchase your parking pass online, prior to move-in. If you order your parking pass prior to August 6th, it’ll be mailed directly to you. If you order online after August 6th, you can pick up your parking pass on move-in day.
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 email@example.com or (765) 641-4132.
All incoming students are automatically opted into the Slingshot 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.
Your username is your AU email address, and your password is your student ID number (if you don’t know your student ID, ask your admissions counselor). If for any reason this is not working, click on the “Forgot Password” link and follow the prompts. For more specific questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

The housing application is officially open! Whether planning to live on campus or commute, all students need to fill out the application, which can be accessed in the student portal. If you have any questions or concerns about AU housing, please contact email@example.com, or your admissions counselor.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or visit them on our website.
All students must accept, reduce, or decline their student loans. This process will begin in early summer. Here are the steps:

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).
Welcome Weekend Schedule
All incoming freshmen, regardless of whether they are living on campus or commuting, are required to be a part of Welcome Weekend activities. Welcome Weekend is the official start of the year for incoming first year students. Please try your hardest not to miss any part of it.
Commuters will have the option to either live on campus for the weekend (space permitting) or commute from home. We will provide meals for commuters who don’t have a meal plan. If you choose to commute, you’ll still have a residence hall to change for activities and rest.
We strongly encourage all undergraduate transfer students to be a part of the Welcome Weekend activities. It would be a blast for you to join all of the Welcome Weekend Fun.
Commuter and Transfer students must fill out this form in order to know if you are staying on campus or not for the weekend.
