Frequently Asked Questions

Can my parents/guardians attend?

Please do! They can attend the informative sessions we have assembled to answer many “parent-type” questions.

What if I cannot attend a Summer Orientation event?

These events are important for your class registration and transition to APU, and we are hopeful you can attend one of them. If you don’t think you will be able to attend, contact your admissions representative or the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at (626) 812-3016.

Do I have to pay any money to enroll in my classes?

To secure your classes, you need to pay the $300 enrollment deposit. Please don’t forget to mail that to APU as soon as possible, or pay online at The deposit deadline is May 1 for fall classes.

Note: Nursing students are eligible to receive an enrollment deposit refund only until May 1.

Is there anything I need to do ahead of time?

In addition to registering through your registration profile, you will need to complete any required assessments before attending Summer Orientation. You will receive an email notifying you of any assessments to complete based on your registration profile.
