You're now one step closer to earning your degree at UMSL.

To keep the momentum going, you'll need to login into your Triton Portal. The Triton Portal serves as a one-stop function, outlining your admissions status and admitted next steps. Use this portal, to view your personalized checklist items including financial aid, housing application, orientation, and much more.

Once you complete the pre-advising questionnaire and orientation program selection, you will be able to enroll into courses and view additional items to prepare you for your first day of classes.
