We are preparing for a meaningful and robust virtual orientation for new Penn State students. Please visit the University's Orientation site for the latest information.
Transfer students are encouraged but not required to attend a Transfer Student Orientation (TSO) session. There will be virtual programs held throughout the summer, as well as an in-person program in August, before the start of the fall 2023 semester. Please choose a session and register for that date through your New Student Orientation task list. Registration for TSO begins in April 2023.
You will meet separately with an academic adviser for an introduction to your major. During that meeting, you will choose and enroll in your courses for the upcoming semester. You do not need to have attended an orientation session to meet with an academic adviser.
Information about your next steps will be sent via email after you accept your offer of admission. Please contact the Division of Undergraduate Studies at 814-949-5084, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. EST for assistance.
