If you are a new student, new PSEO student, or transfer student with less than 12 credits, your next step is to sign-up for an Orientation & Registration session. Once you attend a session and meet with an academic advisor, the orientation hold on your account will be removed.

Orientation and Registration takes two to three hours. You need to sign up for a session to attend. No walk-ins are accepted. If you are more than 15 minutes late, you may be asked to reschedule for a later session.
