New Student Orientation

Student Union Building

New students and their families are invited to New Student Orientation. Once you have completed your Educational Planning Survey and ALEKS Math Placement Assessment, you will be able to make your reservation to attend NSO.

This program assists first-year students in evaluating their educational plans and is the first stage of the academic advising experience. You will have an opportunity to interact with various staff, faculty and administrators who represent University areas that will impact your success at Penn State.

The NSO events will go a long way to enhance your knowledge of Penn State and to help you make a successful transition to the University.
