1. Set up your Port account

This gives you single sign-on access to your student email, your financial aid awards and bill, helpful groups and information, and eventually your class schedule and housing assignment and more.

Your preset username and password can be found in an email sent to you when you were accepted, or by contacting your admissions counselor.

2. Register for classes

You can contact your admissions counselor for assistance with choosing and registering for courses. You can view available courses on your Port account, through the Academics and Registration student page. If you’re unsure who to contact, you can email [email protected].

3. Send your FAFSA

You can submit the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) anytime after October 1st. The financial aid office will use that information to put together your financial aid award package with any grants, scholarships, and other aid that you qualify for. We are here to help make Franciscan affordable for you!

Contact [email protected] or your admissions counselor with any questions or needs.

4. Accept your Financial Aid Awards

Once you have committed to Franciscan, visit the Financial Aid & Student Accounts page on your Port account to confirm that you have completed all required forms, including the Master Promissory Note and Entrance Counseling if you are accepting any federal aid. Then, accept your awards by clicking on the Accept My Awards button on that page. This is non-binding, and you can adjust this anytime before you pay the bill. Contact [email protected] with any questions.

5. Send your final official transcripts

These must be on file with Admissions before classes begin, or you will have a hold placed on your account. Send by mail to the Admission Office, or electronically to [email protected].

6. Pay your bill

You can set up a payment plan, send a payee invite, and pay your balance through your Online Payment Center on the Financial Aid and Student Accounts page in your Port account.

The Fall bill or first payment is due July 15th. The Spring bill is due December 15th.

Contact [email protected] with any questions.

7. Order your textbooks

You can order your textbooks starting 1-2 months prior to the start of each semester. You can also have them shipped to your home address. Please be sure to verify this setting in your Slingshot account.
