New Student Checklist

Welcome to Cleary University! 

Approximately 24 hours after receiving your registration confirmation via email, you will be able to access your Cleary email account, Student portal, and Canvas.

SSO allows you to automatically be signed into your other accounts.
If you’re logging back into your accounts, this is what the SSO process looks like.
 

STEP FOUR: Financial Aid

COMPLETING FAFSA

All undergraduate students must complete a FAFSA application. Graduate students may submit a FAFSA application if additional aid (student loans)is needed

2. Complete the FREE Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) online; our intuitional code is 002246 fafsa.ed.gov.

3. Dropping/withdrawing from courses may affect aid

In order to officially receive financial aid (institutional scholarships and student loans) you must first accept your aid.  The Financial Aid Office will contact you via email with more information on how to accept or decline your financial aid offers.

Renewals of institutional scholarships are grade dependent.  Please review the Cleary Course Catalog for the requirements of your Cleary scholarships. For more information, please visit https://cleary.edu/academics/course-catalog/

STEP FIVE: Paying Tuition

Once you are registered for classes, you are fully responsible for tuition and fees. Cleary offers students multiple payment options including a 50/50 or Three-Payment plan.  Students may pay their tuition bill using financial aid, cash, check, or charge, (Visa, MC, Discover, and AmEx) Employer Voucher, or Payment Plans. Contact the Business Office to establish a Tuition Payment Plan or to pay in full. You may also do this from your Student Portal.
