Next steps for admitted graduate students
Apply for financial aid (if applicable)
If you are applying for financial aid, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Be sure to include the Saint Martin's University school code: 003794 on your FAFSA.
If you did not submit your social security number on your application to your graduate program, please contact the Office of Graduate Admission with your SSN, as this will be required to match your FAFSA to your aid.
Schedule an advising appointment
The name and contact information of your advisor is on your admissions letter.
Register for classes using Self-Service
JBLM and extension campus students:
Have questions about registration?
Call our office, or use the Self-Service User Guide.
Obtain your student ID card
All graduate students must obtain a student ID card no later than the first day of classes. Bring photo ID and proof of registration (a print out of your schedule or payment will work) to the Office of Public Safety, located in Old Main, room 215 (open 24 hours).
Get your parking pass
Visit Office of Public Safety, located in Old Main, room 215 (open 24 hours). You will need to provide proof of current insurance and registration in order to be issued a parking pass. Parking on campus is free, but you will be ticketed for parking without a permit or in the incorrect lot.
Submit required proof of immunization forms
If this is not submitted, a hold will be put on your registration. Active duty military AND students at the JBLM campus are exempt from this requirement.
Submit your proof of military/VA status (if applicable)
Proof of active duty, family member, National Guard/reservists, spouses, disabled veterans (not VocRehab) status must be provided to any of the extension campus offices or to the Student Financial Services Center on the main Lacey campus. If no proof has been provided, you will be entered as a "civilian". Because there may be a difference in tuition cost, please provide this proof as soon as possible so that we can adjust your rate accordingly. Additional military resources are available for review.
Apply for the insurance billing waiver (if applicable)
This can be done online after you register for classes.
Submit your final transcripts/proof of degree (if applicable)
If you were admitted on the condition that you submit your final transcripts and proof of degree, you will not be able to register until they are received by the Office of Graduate Admissions.
