For Students Starting in Fall 2018
Congratulations on being accepted into the McAnulty College of Liberal Arts. As an accepted student, you may be wondering what steps to take next. Here is a guide to help you navigate the next several months.
Choose Your Learning Community
Connect with Us on Campus
Choosing a college can be tough, and we hope you'll get to know us a little better as you make your final decision. To help make the whole process a little easier, we host several events so you can learn more about the McAnulty College of Liberal Arts and Duquesne University overall.

File your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
Deadline to submit FAFSA for maximum consideration is May 1. Submit online at fafsa.ed.gov.
- Duquesne's Federal School Code is 003258
Submit Your Enrollment Deposit
Deadline for enrollment deposit is May 1, and you can submit it online.
- After submitting your deposit, you will get instructions on how to set up your MultiPass account, which provides access to DORI (Duquesne's online student portal), email and other electronic resources. DORI is where you will eventually be able to order books, pay bills, view your grades and schedule classes.
- After you create your MultiPass, be sure to check your new Duquesne email account on a regular basis. Academic advisors and professors may send important information to you there.
What to Expect Next
After you've submitted your enrollment deposit, you'll begin the process of choosing classes. August--and move-in day--will be here before you know it.
April - The Liberal Arts College Advising Office will begin mailing out postcards to all deposited students with information on the registration process. Students will be asked to choose a learning community, answer questions about their intended major and indicate course preferences. Academic advisors will use these responses to generate students' fall schedules. Learn more about each of our Learning Communities before ranking your choices.
May - Academic advisors will begin registering first-year students based on the preferences they submitted via the online registration plan. Advisors will also begin meeting with new transfer students to evaluate their transfer work and register them for classes.
July - Fall 2018 Freshman Advisement Summer Transition (FAST)
August - Move-in and New Student Orientation happen near the end of the month. Classes begin on August 27. August 31 is last day to register or make changes to your Fall 2018 schedule.
