WELCOME TO THE FERRUM FAMILY!
Now that you have been accepted, the next step is to submit your $250 Confirmation Deposit indicating your intention to enroll at Ferrum College. This deposit will be credited to your student account for Fall Semester 2017, and is refundable until May 1, 2017. We still accept deposits after May 1.
You can you pay your deposit by phone, online via Panther Tracks (your log-in information is included in your acceptance packet), or by mail. If you choose to submit your payment by mail, please be sure to include the confirmation card enclosed with your acceptance letter to ensure that we can identify the account the check or money order should be credited to.
Once your Confirmation Deposit has been posted to your account, please complete the following steps. Many of the forms required can be accessed via your Panther Tracks, which we have noted below. For your convenience, we will also mail these forms to you.
- Complete and submit your FAFSA after October 1, 2016.
- Complete and submit your Housing Survey. If you are eligible to live off-campus and plan to do so, please complete the Housing Waiver Form instead.*
