Academic Advice for Change-of-Campus Students
Expect to take control of and be responsible for your academic program and course scheduling plans. Use the online Bulletin, Schedule of Courses, Degree Audit Report, and information posted by your academic department to make
plans before meeting with your adviser. Don't expect your adviser to
know everything. Course numbers and names change periodically, academic rules and regulations are constantly
updated, and program requirements are subject to regular review.
Don't rely on other students for official information or for course information. Student advice on rules, regulations, program requirements, and courses may be misleading, if not incorrect.
Saturday, January 5, 2013, from 3:00-5:30 p.m. in Heritage Hall. Learn more about this and other spring orientation programs for new change-of-campus students at www.psu.edu/oue.
Visit University Park
Penn State students who are attending one of the 19 Penn State Commonwealth Campuses and participating in 2+2 program with plans to attend Penn State University Park to finish their degree are invited to visit the University Park Campus during a designated visit day.
Reservations are required.
If you have questions specific to your major, we suggest you make an appointment with your Academic College/Department. When visiting with the academic college/department, you should arrange for your visit to either end by 10:30 a.m. so you can be in Shields Building by 11:00 a.m. for the tour, or for the college visit to begin after 1:30 p.m.
