WHEREVER YOU WERE BEFORE, WE’RE GLAD THAT YOU’RE HERE NOW!
As you prepare to begin your career at Plymouth State University (PSU), we hope you are looking forward to a challenging, exciting period of your life. You will have opportunities to increase your knowledge and gain theoretical and practical experience in your academic program, developing independence and greater self-confidence while at the university. By getting involved in student life, you can make friendships that will last a lifetime. The summer orientation program for transfer and part-time matriculated students, scheduled for June 8th, is designed to help you in this exciting transition to life at Plymouth State University.
What’s Happening When!
WHEN, WHERE, WHAT, HOW? HAVE WE GOT ANSWERS FOR YOU!
The transfer & part-time orientation program schedule on this website outlines what will happen during the program. You should arrive at the Hartman Union Building (HUB) for check-in between 8:00am and 9:30am. Your lunch will be provided, and there will be an opportunity for you to meet with our orientation leaders who are current PSU students. The time spent in registration scheduling and I.D. card processing can widely vary. New students should plan for the orientation program to end by 4:30pm.
GETTING CREDIT, WHERE CREDIT IS DUE: TRANSFERRING IN YOUR COURSEWORK
At check-in you will receive an updated copy of your transfer course evaluation. If you have declared a major with us, you will also receive the first application of your transfer credits to your Plymouth program. Please note that you can not enroll in courses at Plymouth that have been satisfied by your transfer credits. It will be helpful to bring a copy of the catalog of your previous college(s), as well as the syllabi of your previous courses and a copy of your most recent semester’s grade report.
YES, YOU REALLY DO HAVE TO COME TO ORIENTATION
You attend this summer orientation program to finalize your registration for fall semester classes and to become acquainted with the University, its environment and its policies. Summer orientation is also the time to find answers to your questions such as, “Where do I get a permit to park on campus?” Sessions will be presented to familiarize you with academic procedures, class schedules and registration. You will have the opportunity to talk to academic department representatives about your first semester courses and will have time in your schedule to visit various offices with questions you may have about academic support, athletics, counseling, financial aid, residential life or student activities.
ONE-DAY OR TWO-DAY ORIENTATION? YOU’VE GOT OPTIONS!
The two-day orientation sessions are designed to provide an extensive and more comprehensive overview of life at PSU. Generally, the two-day sessions are of greatest benefit to entering first year students who have no prior experience in a university setting. If, however, you have interest in attending one of our two-day sessions, please call us at 800-842-6900 to discuss with you whether the one-day or a two-day session will best suit your particular needs. The two-day sessions are June 2 & 3, June 9 & 10, June 12 & 13, and June 16 & 17.
SIGN ME UP, I’M READY TO ROLL!
