Orientation & Registration Dates are now available! 

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

Orientation and Registration takes two to three hours, depending on your need. 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.

To schedule your session, use the links listed below.
