All new students pay a $300 enrollment deposit prior to class registration. The enrollment deposit is the first investment in your future at HSU. It reserves your place in the class, shows your intent to attend, and places your name on the list for Housing and Stampede (new student orientation). The deposit will be credited toward your first semester charges after classes begin. To pay your enrollment deposit, log into your HSU Central account and select CashNet to “Make a Payment.” (Non-refundable after May 1, 2015)
