Undergraduate Advising Guide

This online guide provides valuable information to PSU students and is designed to supplement academic advising.

Discover advising in an unexpected way! The Undergraduate Advising Guide is an online module available in D2L and was produced by Advising & Career Services. It is designed to help students address multiple questions about completing their degree successfully at PSU.

Topics include: Graduation Requirements, Academic Planning, Preparation, Making Choices, Exploring Goals, Adviser-Advisee Partnerships and Campus Resources. While the information is available online and in printed materials, the intent of the module is to centralize it and present it in a more engaging and dynamic way.

While the Undergraduate Advising Guide is designed for students in their first year at PSU, any current undergraduate student may access it in D2L via the Self Registration process. To do so, follow these instructions:
