St. John’s University is now accepting enrollment and housing deposits for new undergraduate students through the online student portal.

To submit your undergraduate enrollment and/or housing deposit, log into your student portal here

Upon logging into your portal, the "Payment Due" amount may reflect both the enrollment and St. John’s University housing deposits. If you plan to live on the St. John’s University Queens campus, please submit both your $300 non-refundable enrollment deposit and $400 non-refundable housing deposit. If you do not plan to live on campus, only submit the non-refundable $300 enrollment deposit, and disregard the St. John’s University housing deposit option. 

Once your payment has been accepted, you will receive an email confirmation of your payment.

Contact the Office of Undergraduate Admission at 718-990-2000.

Once again, we welcome you to the St. John’s family and look forward to seeing you on campus soon!
