3. Setup your Colgate Account

Within 48 hours of submitting your deposit, you will receive an email from Dean McLoughlin with important instructions for setting up your Colgate account. Your Colgate account will take the place of your applicant portal, functioning as your hub of information as a new Colgate student. Through your account, you can access your student email account, as well as information on pre-orientation, orientation, housing, and registration.

*Housing Preference Survey and first-year course offerings will be available in June. You will be notified via your Colgate email account.
