You’ve Been Admitted. Now You’re Bulldog Bound.
This page is your one-stop shop for everything you need to know about enrolling at TLU. You are now officially Bulldog Bound.
Congratulations! You're In. What's Next?
TLU’s Admissions team created this page just for admitted students. We've created several short videos to walk you through everything you need to know about Housing & Meal Plans, Advising & Registering for Classes, Financial Aid & Scholarships, and Life on Campus.
Let's Get Started.

2. Applying for Housing & Choosing a Meal Plan
Check out this 3-minute presentation by our Director of Residence Life Tim Westmoreland. He reviews housing and meal plan costs, the various options available to students, and when you can expect your housing assignment.
Housing applications opened on February 1 and are evaluated on a first-come, first-served basis. That means the earlier you apply, the better chance you will have of being housed in your top choice of residence halls.
- Before you can apply for housing, you must pay your non-refundable enrollment deposit and submit your meningitis vaccination record to email@example.com.
- You can see photos of the residence halls, room layouts, and learn about the various features of each hall by viewing our Housing Guide.
- See a full list of the costs for each residence hall as well as the four meal plan options by viewing our Housing & Meal Plan Costs.
- The Housing application opened Feb. 1 so apply now. Housing is assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. The earlier you apply, the better chance you have to be housed in your first choice.
- Need to see more before you apply? You can take a virtual tour of our residence halls. Click here to watch a virtual tour of our residence halls.
3. Registering For Classes
Every incoming student must complete the New Student Registration Form (referred to as the NSRF). In this 4-minute video presentation, Academic Advisor Jessica Anderson explains the NSRF and what you need to know to complete it.
- All incoming students must complete the New Student Registration Form.
- The form is accessible on MyTLU and will be available beginning April 19.
- It takes about 30-40 minutes to complete. You can stop and save your answers if you need to come back to it.
- You can only submit the form once, so review your answers carefully before you hit submit.
- The student should complete the form (not the parent). If you need assistance, contact your admissions representative or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
4. Life on Campus: What to Know & Ways to Get Involved
Services & Support. TLU’s Office of Student Life & Learning oversees first-year programs, student activities, advising, academic support, housing, dining, health services, counseling, disability services, career services, campus ministry, and the Center for Servant Leadership. Associate Dean of Student Life & Learning Malikah Pitts-Harvey welcomes you and provides an overview of how you can get involved, feel supported, and find your path.
Getting Involved. Student organizations, honor societies, professional organizations, departmental organizations, service & social organizations (includes Greek life), campus ministry, admissions ambassadors, and Peer Mentors are part of the TLU culture of community, learning, and service. TLU’s Director of First Year and Campus Programs Samira Lopez talks about getting involved on campus and how one of the first people to welcome you in August will be your Peer Mentor.
5. Financial Aid & Payment Options
In this short video, TLU’s Director of Financial Aid Erica Miller walks you through the scholarship and financial aid process that includes: the FAFSA, TLU academic and need-based aid, federal and state grants, loans, and federal work study. She also reviews payment options and plans.
