Orientation

Notice


Orientation is from August 7 to August 18 for international students, and August 9 to August 18 for domestic students.

Orientation activities are mandatory and all students are expected to participate in the activities during the program. Please make plans accordingly to be here.

Please Arrive Early

Orientation is a very busy time, with events beginning at 8:45am and finishing at 5pm almost every day. The schedule is filled with events and activities with limited opportunities to take care of the myriad of details that come with moving to a new location.  Thus, it is highly recommend that you arrive at least a few days ahead of time in order to find time to get settled and comfortable with your new surroundings.

Penn State ID Card - Stop in the HUB and have your photo taken for your ID Card. This can also be done on other Penn State Campuses.

For Our International Students

Please know that we do work closely with the University Office of Global Programs to coordinate our activities and to ensure that you receive the necessary information and details and complete the required tasks. Please note that some dates for orientation activities may appear to be in conflict with MBA activities but we have made necessary arrangements to ensure compliance so you will follow the schedule which our office provides you.  This schedule is forthcoming and will be provided immediately upon confirmation of all dates and activities.  

UOGP (University Office of Global Programs) will also provide additional international student specific details and information on their website as it becomes available.
