    The Student Portal also includes your official Central State student email account. Check your emails at least once a week for important updates. 

    With a Central State email address comes a variety of benefits, including discounted (and sometimes free) software, discounted subscriptions, and more.

    If you have not already done so, submit your $195 housing fee ($60 room reservation fee and $135 room key fee), which is required to complete your application and room selection process.

    You will not have access to the housing application if you have not confirmed your admission by paying $105.

    All new student confirmation fees are non-refundable. You will not have access to see the housing application until 24 hours after you have paid your orientation and matriculation fee.

    The housing application can be completed on Self Service. Students who want to request each other as roommates will need to list each other on their housing applications.
