Welcome To Morehouse — Your Destiny Awaits!
We’re excited to welcome you to our campus, our classes, and our family. Until then, there’s plenty to do. This checklist will help you stay organized and complete all necessary tasks so you’re ready on your first day.
#1: Access the Morehouse Student Portal.
Find the email you received from email@example.com. This contains your Morehouse student identification number, or M#. You’ll use your M# to obtain your official Morehouse.edu email address, which will also be your login for your Morehouse College “MyPortal” account.

#2: Access Banner Web.
BannerWeb is an app inside your MyPortal account. Here, you can check your financial aid award status, bills and payment information, and other important details. You should start using BannerWeb ASAP.
#3: Make Your Commitment.
To officially accept your place in the Class of 2027, you’ll need to pay a commitment fee or deposit of $588. While you have until July 1, 2023 to make this payment, you should do it as soon as possible. The first 100 to pay will receive a 20% discount at the Morehouse College Bookstore on-campus or online.
Learn more about Submitting Your $588 Deposit
#4: Submit Your FAFSA.
Your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be completed so we can determine if you qualify for additional grant funding.
#5: Understand College Financing.
Learn more about the cost of college — and about grants, loans, scholarships, and other financial aid opportunities. Although you’re automatically considered for certain scholarships, it’s important to understand all your options.
#6: Take Your Placement Assessment.
To determine which classes are right for you, you’ll take a variety of placement, preparation, and learning assessments, including math and foreign language.
#7: Submit Your Mandatory Health Forms.
Health and safety are priorities at Morehouse College. The pre-entrance health record is required before you are allowed to move onto campus housing or enroll in classes.
