New Student "Clearance"

In order to finish enrolling as a new student and register for classes, you'll need to receive "clearance". Please see below for what clearance means for each office and how to contact the office(s) you still need clearance from.

It's important to check your Cal Lutheran email account frequently to be sure you receive important updates from the offices listed below.

Financial Clearance

Each traditional undergraduate student is required to gain financial clearance on their student account from the Student Accounts Office to keep any pre-registered classes for the upcoming semester.

Financial clearance is achieved when three things happen:

  1. The student submits a signed and completed FERPA to the Student Accounts Office.
  2. The student submits the online Payment Contract found in WebAdvisor under Student Accounts
  3. The student submits the online Electronic Promissory Note found in WebAdvisor under Student Accounts  
  4.  And one of the following:
    1. The student remits payment for the estimated balance due on the pre-bill, via check or cash
    2. OR The student signs up for a Monthly Payment Plan to schedule automatic payments covering their outstanding account balance
    3. OR The student’s financial aid more than covers the tuition, fees, room and board expenses
Please contact Student Accounts if your email indicates that you still need to achieve Financial Clearance (Student Accounts): 


Financial Aid Office Clearance

Financial Aid clearance is achieved when you have satisfied all the requirements for your financial aid package. These requirements will depend on the types of aid you have received (scholarships, grants, and loans). Often the requirement is regarding a missing document or an incomplete student or parent loan application.  You may also refer to your student portal to see what may be needed to finalize your financial aid file.

Because each student's financial aid situation is unique, it is easiest if we speak with you directly regarding your Financial Aid clearance status.

Please contact Financial Aid if your email indicates that you still need to achieve Financial Aid Office Clearance:
