You're a Bulldog!

Congratulations and welcome to a very selective group—admitted Drake Bulldogs! 

If you’re as excited about this as we are, follow these steps to make it official and let us know you’re coming to Drake:

1. Log in to blueView.

Your login credentials are in the acceptance letter included in your admittance packet. (If you lost this information or need help, contact your admission counselor.)

blueView is Drake’s password-protected Web portal. You’ll use it not only to secure your spot at Drake, but also to manage your class schedule, registration, accounts, grades, personal information, campus events, and more.

2. Pay your tuition deposit to enroll.

In blueView, click the Welcome Admitted Students tab and follow the Submit Your Tuition Deposit instructions in the upper right to make your $250 tuition deposit and officially enroll.

3. Sign up for housing or request commuter status.

Next, complete the Submit Your Housing Deposit steps in the lower right to sign up for housing and a meal plan, and pay your $250 housing deposit. (You can also request commuter status here.)

You can submit your housing contract now and make specific roommate requests later. Priority consideration deadlines for roomate requests are June 30 for Fall or December 1 for Spring.

We also recommend that you change your default password in blueView by going to the Support Center tab, clicking Change your Drake Password, and following the provided instructions.

That's it! You're a Bulldog!
