Congratulations on your admission to Penn State Schuylkill! We are looking forward to working with you this summer during New Student Academic Orientation (NSAO), Welcome Weekend, and the First-year Experience to help you become acquainted with students, faculty, staff, and campus resources to assist in your transition to the Penn State Schuylkill community!
New Student Academic Orientation (NSAO) assists first-year students with their transition to Penn State by introducing them to the academic culture and campus resources. This program is the first stage of academic advising, and provides students with an understanding of their scholastic preparation, academic ability, and educational and professional interests, and introduces them to the academic structure and degree programs of the University.
The NSAO program will provide you with the opportunity to learn about your placement test results, meet with an academic adviser to review your educational plans, and to register in advance for fall semester classes. In addition, you will receive your Penn State computer access account and will participate in programs designed to expose you to the college experience at Penn State.
NSAO sessions at Penn State Schuylkill begin on June 17, 2013. Welcome letters were mailed to all incoming freshman. If you did not receive your letter with the instructions for scheduling your NSAO, please call our Academic Advising center at 570-385-6110.
