After you accept your offer of admission, you will receive information about the ALEKS Math Assessment. For summer/fall offers, this information starts going out March 1, and will be sent on a continual basis to students that accept their offer of admission. The sooner you finish this task, the sooner you can schedule the remaining component of New Student Orientation (NSO) - the campus visit!
Once you have completed your ALEKS Math Assessment, you will receive an email inviting you you to make your reservation for your campus visit. You will also receive “homework” for your orientation visit, so make some time to complete those items prior to arriving on campus.
While the details of the orientation visit will vary by campus, you will have the opportunity to meet with campus personnel, learn about student life, discuss academic choices and your educational plan, and ultimately, work with an academic adviser to schedule your classes.
Please view the Penn State New Student Orientation website for more details.
