Submit your FAFSA.
- Submit your FAFSA as early as possible to determine your grant and loan eligibility. To ensure Ursuline’s Financial Aid office receives your FAFSA, be sure to include Ursuline College on the ‘School Selection Page’ (code 003134).

Check your technology requirements.
All students in online majors (UCAP) must have consistent access to a computer and internet to complete class assignments. Additionally, some majors require access to a webcam and a microphone for synchronous classes. Be sure to review Ursuline's Technology Requirements for important information on computer operating system requirements and compatibility. Contact your admission counselor with any concerns about the technology requirements in advance of your first online courses.
Login to your accounts.
Within 72 hours of your deposit being received, you will receive instructions on how you can login to your Ursuline accounts. Once you've successfully logged in, be sure to regularly check your Ursuline accounts, especially your Ursuline email account, for important information. If you have difficulty logging into any of your Ursuline accounts, please contact our IT department for assistance.
Register for your personalized virtual orientation.
At least two weeks before your classes start, please register for your virtual orientation session here. Attending orientation ensures you have a smooth transition to Ursuline College!
Complete your New Student Online Experience (NSOE) in D2L
- The New Student Online Experience (NSOE) is your virtual introduction to Ursuline College. This online course will serve as a resource to all things Ursuline.
- The NSOE covers relevant information to a successful start at Ursuline. Completion of the NSOE is required for all incoming students and a certificate of completion is required to begin classes. The course will take about 2.5 hours to complete but it is designed to be viewed in pieces. No need to do everything all at once!
Submit your final official college transcripts to the Processing Center
Submit all official transcripts – If you were admitted ‘provisionally,’ you’ll need to send us official undergraduate transcripts from ALL colleges and universities previously attended. Official transcripts must be sent directly to Ursuline and can be mailed to Ursuline College (Attn: Processing Center 2550 Lander Rd., Pepper Pike, OH 44124) or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org
Additionally, after your official transcripts arrive, you will receive an official notification that your credit audit has been completed by our credit evaluator.
Feel free to explore your transfer equivalents at Transferology.com. For an unofficial Ursuline credit evaluation, schedule a call with your UC admissions Counselor.
