Paying Your Deposit
You've chosen Gustavus? You're a Gustie now! Congratulations!
First-year students may pay their deposit anytime before May 1, 2014. While all first-year students are guaranteed on-campus housing, your housing preference priority is determined by the date we receive your deposit. *Students intending to transfer to Gustavus have until August 2014 to make their final decision.*
Receipt of your deposit signals your official intention to enroll at Gustavus, so you should send your $300 non-refundable enrollment deposit as soon as you're certain Gustavus is the right college fit. If you've chosen another college, please notify the Admission Office.
By Credit Card
You can pay your enrollment deposit using a credit card -- Visa, Mastercard, American Express or Discover. There’s no additional charge to do this (for your initial deposit only, Gustavus will pay the convenience fee for you). To pay by credit card, you will need your Gustavus ID number. It can be found in your admission letter, on the "deposit ticket" in your admission packet, or on your financial aid award. You can also request your ID number by emailing email@example.com or calling 1-800-GUSTAVUS. Future payments to Gustavus can be made using Mastercard, American Express or Discover—not Visa—but you will be charged a 2.75% convenience fee.

By Electronic Transfer
Using your account and routing numbers from a checking or savings account, you can pay your enrollment deposit online. For this, you will also need your Gustavus ID number (see paragraph above). To pay by electronic transfer, click here or the credit card graphic above.
No response card is needed to mail a deposit check, although a “deposit ticket” was included in the admission packet and financial aid award folder. Be sure your name is listed on the check's Memo line. Please make the check payable to Gustavus Adolphus College and mail it using the pre-paid envelope included with the deposit ticket.
After receiving your deposit, preparations will begin for your arrival in the fall. Late spring and summertime mailings will be sent about housing, registration, and other enrollment information. For a preview of the forms and next steps, click here.
Thank you for your deposit! We welcome you to a community of talented people who excel in the classroom, field, and stage. Here, people care about each other, freely discuss their ideas, and become leaders who also know how to follow. Gusties make their lives count
