Now that you are admitted to Metropolitan State, use this checklist to guide you through the registration process.

First-Year Admitted Student Checklist (.pdf)

First-Year Admitted Student Checklist

  1. Go online to register for the online New Student Orientation

    Freshmen with 16 or less credits must complete both the online orientation and on-campus group advising and registration session. The advantage to attending an on-campus session is that it will provide you with an opportunity to see the campus, know where the bookstore is for purchasing textbooks, obtain you student ID card and meet academic advisor and faculty.

  2. Register for Metro 101: Your Academic Journey

    This course is designed to introduce students to Metropolitan State and its academic programs and services. It is required of all newly-admitted students with less than 16 semester credits.

  3. Go online and login to the Portal to access your school email

  4. Placement Assessment

    All incoming freshmen are required to complete the placement tests that include basic measures of reading, writing and mathematics. View the Testing Schedule, follow the instructions shown, and make an appointment to complete required tests as early as possible.

  5. Degree Audit/DARS Report

    You will receive a DARS Report within 7-10 business days after receiving your acceptance letter. A DARS Report will show you which placement assessment tests you will be required to take prior to registration. If you have taken a course for college credit, your DARS Report will show you which requirement is already fulfilled.

  6. Arrange for Payment

    You can view your bill for tuition and fees online through eServices. The deadline for tuition payments is posted in our Academic Calendar.

  7. Academic Advisor

    One to three weeks after receiving your acceptance to the university, you will receive a "Welcome Letter" with your assigned academic advisor for you prospective program/major. Please contact your advisor prior to registering for classes.

  8. Get to Know Your Campuses

    Check which campus offers your courses by viewing the Class Schedule.
