Account questions? Contact our the admissions tech team at email@example.com
Pay your enrollment deposit.
Your $200 enrollment deposit saves your spot in class and allows you to continue with the other steps. This deposit is fully refundable until May 1. (Your housing security deposit is a separate deposit.)
Use your community account to log in to Blink (Student Services tab > Enrollment Deposit channel) to pay by credit card. You can also send a check to the Admissions Office if you prefer.
Get in line for housing.
You can complete a housing application through Blink (Student Services tab > Housing channel > Apply for Housing).
You must pay your $150 housing security deposit to activate the application and secure your application priority date. The housing security deposit is separate from the enrollment deposit and is also refundable before May 1.
You'll select your roommate (optional) and your specific room in May and June based on your application priority date. A meal plan will be assigned after you select your room.
If you're planning to live off-campus, please let us know.
Apply for financial aid and scholarships.
You can start by getting an estimate or exploring financial aid information to learn about tuition, costs, and applying for aid.

Pre-register for classes.
Interested in the honors program? You can apply now through Blink (Student Academics tab > Honors Program channel).
In April, you’ll have the chance to get registered for all of your classes, take your ID card photo, meet classmates, and get more familiar with your new campus home during a New Student Welcome event.
Please submit your class pre-registration form in Blink (Student Academics tab > New Student Registration channel) at least 72 hours before the event. This way, you'll be able to leave with your class schedule in hand.
If you're not able to attend, please complete your class pre-registration form by May 31. Your schedule will be prepared by the Office of the Registrar and sent to you by email later in the summer.

Complete your health insurance waiver and immunization form.
All College of Arts & Sciences students are required to have health insurance. The health insurance waiver will allow you to provide proof of insurance or choose to purchase insurance. If you don't complete this form by the 10th day of class, you will be automatically enrolled in the plan provided through Bethel and charged the yearly premium of $1008. Intercollegiate athletes will be charged $2270.
Minnesota law requires Bethel to collect immunization information from all students. If you don’t complete the immunization form, you will be unable to register for second semester.
Complete these forms through Blink (Student Services tab > Immunization & Health Insurance channel). They'll be available late April and should be completed as soon as possible.
