Setting up your Providence Populi account to access email, billing, and class registration

Much of the information you will need is found through your Populi account and your Providence email account.
Once we have received confirmation of your enrollment, the account will be set up.

How to set up the account:
You will receive an email with login information from populibot@populiweb.com. This email will be sent to the email address you provided us on your application. Please don’t delete this email and be sure to follow the directions to set up your Populi account. Populi is the student information system that you will use during your years at Providence. This is the only way for you to access your billing statements and your class schedule. When you first log in to Populi, you will see the home page News Feed; this is where you will find links to information and updates. We recommend that you access Populi and your Providence email on a regular basis.

How to access your Providence email:
Once you set up your Populi account and log in through Populi, there is a tab at the top left of the landing page for Populi that says “Email.” Simply click on this tab and it will bring you to your Providence email account.
