For Deposited Students

To reserve your space for the upcoming semester, all admitted students must submit a nonrefundable $200 tuition deposit and the Admitted Student Response Form by May 1 for Fall enrollment or January 1 for Spring enrollment. If these dates have passed, the deposit deadline is two weeks after the receipt of the letter of admission. Once you have submitted your deposit, you can now take the following steps to complete the enrollment process:

Register for Classes

You can make an appointment to meet with an academic and career counselor, who will help you select your courses, apply your transfer credits to your major, tell you what requirements remain for your degree and advise you on registration for the upcoming semester. Please contact Academic and Career Counseling (located in Kumble Hall) at 516-299-2746.

You also can register for courses by attending one of our Enrollment Services Days. For dates and times, visit our Open Houses and Information sessions web site.

Check Your Student Transfer Evaluation

You will receive an official Student Transfer Evaluation to your home address within two weeks of your acceptance. This evaluation contains a listing of your transfer credits accepted by C.W. Post. It is based on all your official college transcripts received to date by the C.W. Post Transfer Admissions Office. If you have attended a college that isn’t included in the evaluation or if you did not submit a final official transcript(s) for all colleges and universities you have attended, please make arrangements to have these documents sent to the C.W. Post Transfer Admissions Office.

Once you receive the Student Transfer Evaluation, you may contact Academic and Career Counseling  at 516-299-2746 to meet with an academic and career counselor to find out how your credits apply to a specific major and what requirements remain for the degree.

Submit Your Final Transcripts

If you haven’t already done so, please make sure to send a final official transcript for all schools you have attended to the C.W. Post Transfer Admissions Office. If you have a question about the status of your transcripts, contact the Transfer Admissions Office at 516-299-2900 and ask to speak with a transfer counselor.

Plan to Attend New Student Orientation

Orientation is a great way to learn more about college life, become familiar with campus resources and facilities, and meet other students. Orientation is not mandatory for transfer students but highly recommended. If you are enrolling in the Fall semester, you can choose from one of two convenient orientations, which are held in August. A make-up orientation is held a few days before school begins in September. For students enrolling in the Spring semester, orientation is held in January. For more information visit the New Transfer Student Orientation Web site, call 516-299-2800 or e-mail  

Other Important Information

Compulsory Health Insurance Requirement:

Long Island University requires all residential students, student-athletes, clinical fieldwork participants, and international students to maintain valid health insurance. You will be automatically billed for the compulsory health insurance plan on your student account. Students who have their own health insurance may waive this charge. This is a time-sensitive responsibility. Students must complete the waiver on or before the semester deadline date to avoid being billed. To waive the charge, log into your My LIU account at and select the Student Health Insurance option from the Useful Links section of the Student Center homepage and follow the required instructions. Please print and retain a receipt for your records.
