Welcome to the Ferrum Family!

Now that you have been accepted, the next step is to submit your $250 Enrollment Deposit as soon as possible indicating your intention to attend Ferrum College. This deposit will be credited to your student account for Fall Semester 2021.

You can pay your deposit by phone, online via Panther Tracks (your log-in information is included in your acceptance packet), or by mail. If you choose to submit your payment by mail, please be sure to include the enrollment deposit form enclosed with your acceptance letter to ensure that we can identify the account the check or money order should be credited to.
