New Student Orientation Dates

New Student Orientation Dates

All new first-year students to Penn State must participate in New Student Orientation (NSO). At NSO, you will meet with faculty and staff, begin to develop goals for your time at Penn State, learn about campus resources, and schedule courses for your first semester.

NSO is a four step process:

Take your ALEKS Math Assessment
Complete your Educational Planning Survey
Do your Pre-NSO Homework (available in May)
Attend New Student Orientation

After you have completed the ALEKS Math Assessment and Educational Planning Survey, students will receive a letter from the Academic & Career Planning Center inviting students to sign up for a New Student Orientation date.  If you are unable to attend New Student Orientation, you will be able to schedule classes during Open Registration on Friday, August 19, 2016.

If you have any questions please call our office at 814-898-6164.
