Activate Your Account

Activating your St. Olaf Account is an important next step as you join the Class of 2023. For students with financial aid awards, it will allow you to access your Financial Aid Online. Without an active St. Olaf account, you cannot accept your financial aid award.

Your St. Olaf account will also allow you to activate your St. Olaf e-mail address and start receiving important notices from the college once you have made your enrollment deposit.

To activate your account, you will need your letter of admission or financial aid award, which will include your St. Olaf ID number. Your St. Olaf ID number is a six-digit number starting in most cases with “19”.

PLEASE NOTE: In the transition from applicant to admitted student, you will have two separate accounts: an Admissions Account and a St. Olaf Account.

The login and password you used to monitor the status of your application is your Admissions Account. This account is the one you will use to make your enrollment deposit and accept your place in the class, register for Admitted Student Days, and apply for a Conversation or Learning Community program.

The St. Olaf Account you activate here will be your St. Olaf login and password for all college business going forward. It is necessary to gain access to — and accept — your financial aid award, as well as housing and course registration and other steps you will take later in the spring and summer.
