New Student Orientation Phase One

New Student Orientation Phase One

Penn State Altoona's Wilbur K. Kraybill Academic Advising Center will be notified when your Educational Planning Survey and ALEKS Math Assessment have been completed. You'll then receive instructions on how to register for a date to attend a student orientation, advising, and registration session. This session is a mandatory, one day academic orientation program for all first-year students and is the first phase of New Student Orientation. Program details are available on the NSO web page.

The sessions are scheduled for the last two weeks of June and the second and third weeks of July for summer and fall admits. Spring admits participate in the NSO session in January during the week before classes begin. Transfer students will receive information on how to arrange a meeting with an academic advisor who will assist you with scheduling classes.
