Student ROAR

Royals Online Access and Registration (ROAR) is the self-service portal for viewing your schedule, grades, tax forms, billing statements, financial aid awards, and more.

  1. Select from these three choices: “Schedule”, “Billing”, or “Financial Aid”.
  2. Enter your Social Security Number in the second box (you must leave Student ID blank)
  3. PIN: re-enter your Social Security Number in the third box (all 9 digits, no hyphens or spaces).
  4. Choose a Term from the drop down menu then Login.
  5. On the next screen follow instructions to create a new pin and then select Change Pin. Your ROAR pin can be changed as often as desired and should be regarded as confidential and under your control.
Note: For International Students without a U.S. SSN, please use your student ID number and add two 9s in front of that number to create a number you can use for ROAR login purposes. For example… an ID of 1721234 becomes the “login SSN” of 991721234. Your student ID can be found on your student schedule.
