Professional Studies Financial Registration

Once students complete Academic Registration (enroll in classes), they must complete a process called Financial Registration. This process includes submitting all requested documents, accepting/rejecting any outstanding Financial Aid awards, and selecting their payment option for each semester. All these items must be completed before the Financial Registration Deadline. Please see below for more information on how to complete Financial Registration.

Financial Registration Requirements

Step One: Access Student Email

All communication is sent to students via their Vanguard University student email. This is the primary form of communication from the Accounting and Financial Aid Offices. Email communication includes semester registration statements, important deadline and missing item notifications, payment reminders, and other various Accounting and Financial Aid information.

Students can access their Vanguard University email through their MyVU portal.

  • Click the Email tab
  • Log in with student's username and password

If students are experiencing issues logging into their MyVU portal, please contact IT at (714)619-6500 or email helpdesk@vanguard.edu.

Step Two: Required Documents

Complete the (5) required documents listed below by the Financial Registration Deadline. These documents are located on the student’s MyVU portal under the Financial Registration tab.

- Financial Obligation Agreement

- Authorization of Allowable Charges

- Code of Conduct Waiver

- Risk and Liability Waiver

- Meningitis Waiver

Please Note: These documents are collected annually; therefore, we will only ask for them one time within an academic year.

Step Three: Payment Options

Submit payment-in-full or enroll in a semester payment plan for the amount reflected on the student's MyBill or semester registration statement by the Financial Registration Deadline. For more information regarding semester billing and payment information, please click here.
