If you have questions regarding Orientation, please contact Judith Brayer, Director of New Student Orientation, at 570-662-4818 or email@example.com.
New Student Orientation is mandatory for all students. Due to COVID-19 testing requirements, we will not be able to host an on-campus experience so Orientation will be conducted using an online modality. Students will complete self-paced modules and have the opportunity to participate in virtual academic advising and informational sessions. Orientation details, dates and registration links are currently being finalized. Please refer to the Orientation webpage for the most up-to-date information.
Placement into English and Math courses
Each student's academic information will be processed to determine placement into the appropriate English and Math courses.
**If you are a Freshman student and have successfully completed a university-level Math or English course equivalent, you must have your college transcript(s) sent to the Admissions Office. If the Admissions Office receives your transcript(s) and determines that you meet the criteria to receive credit for the course(s), you will be scheduled accordingly.
If you are placed into a remedial English course and would like the opportunity to take a placement exam or make an appeal, please refer to the Placement Criteria and Appeals webpage.
Advanced Placement (AP) Courses and College Transcripts
We accept high school courses taken under the national Advanced Placement (AP) program prior to admission to the University. A minimum score of three (3) on the qualifying examinations is required for award of credit. No more than 24 credits earned by such examinations may be applied toward graduation requirements. Please submit the official score report from Collegeboard.com for review for transfer credits.
If you are taking any Advanced Placement (AP) Courses or completing college coursework while still in high school, please be sure to have the official AP scores and/or college transcript(s) forwarded to the Admissions Office.
All first year students are required to complete a health form. This health form must be completed and returned in order for the student to be treated at the University health clinic.
Each student is assigned an advisor from within their academic department. Once you arrive on campus, you will be instructed to visit the department secretary from within your intended major. You will then be provided with contact information for your advisor.
