Note: Completing the $200 enrollment deposit confirms your place in the incoming class. The priority deposit deadline is May 1 of the academic year for which you are applying if enrolling for the fall semester. Deposits are only refundable up to May 1; refunds will not be given after May 1. 

You may submit your deposit using any of the following options:

  • Submit your housing contract and $200 damage deposit by July 1 (housing damage deposit is non-refundable after Aug. 1)

  • If you qualify, you can submit your housing exemption request (must meet off-campus qualifications listed on form, and select off-campus on the form)

  • Housing assignments will be made and your room number will be sent to you in an email in the middle of July

Whether you are going to use scholarships, financial aid, military benefits, or any combination of these forms of payment, here are the resources/forms you may need:

  • Check your financial aid award on the Student Aid Portal. You will need your student ID number (contact us if you need it) and then create your own PIN# to log in. 

  • Not planning to do a financial aid application? Submit your FAFSA waiver form.

  • Using military benefits? Submit your VA paperwork to the Office of the Registrar at

To fully understand your financial aid award and ask about any additional available scholarships, sign up for a financial aid talk with your admission counselor

After submitting your deposit(s), please allow at least one week to receive your official Saint Martin's email account (e.g., from our ITS Help Desk labeled “Saint Martin’s network email account”. Check your Junk Mail too as the email sometimes gets sidetracked there. Once you have received your email account, log in and change your password as all official University notifications will be sent to this email.

If you have not received an email address after two weeks, please contact your admission counselor or the ITS Help Desk at

Sign up for orientation and registration, held before the semester starts, where you'll register for classes and begin connecting with the Saint Martin’s community. 

Most students are required to complete placement exams to determine accurate starting class levels in English, math and world languages. There is no charge for placements. For exceptions to those needing to take a placement (prior college credit, AP exam scores, etc.) please see the below exceptions: Placement test exceptions

Students who do not meet the exceptions need to complete all placements prior to orientation.

  • English - once you have paid your deposit, you will receive an email from Accuplacer with instructions to complete the English placement online.

  • World languages - available online.
