Remote Advising Available

The academic and career advisors at PSU are committed to serving students, especially at this challenging time. Although our physical locations are closed, staff are working remotely. Advisors continue to be accessible via email and are available for phone and video appointments.

Important information for students new to PSU:

New PSU students should complete Orientation prior to scheduling an appointment with their advisor. Orientation covers the information necessary to select and register for classes, and students may follow up with their advisor afterwards if they have specific questions. Orientation signups for winter 2021 will begin in late November.

Postbaccalaureate and graduate students are not required to complete this Orientation


How advisors are assigned:

All undergraduate students and degree-seeking postbaccalaureates are assigned a primary advisor based on their major or pre-professional program's Advising Pathway. Your assigned advisor is listed in Banweb.

If your assigned advisor does not appear in Banweb, here are some possible reasons why:

  • Your assigned advisor may have changed. Please contact your Pathway advising office to connect with a new advisor.
  • Students admitted for a future term are not assigned until they have confirmed enrollment with Admissions.
  • Inactive students (those who have not been enrolled within the last year), will be assigned to a Pathway advisor based on their chosen major after they re-enroll in classes. Please submit a Request to Reenroll form. You can find your advisor on the Pathway page for your major.
  • Graduate students are advised by faculty within their academic department; these are not currently recorded on the student record.

In addition to the primary assigned advisor, Honors students should meet with their Honors College advisor in addition to their assigned major or pre-professional advisor. 

Exploratory/Undeclared students must select a Pathway and declare it using the Academic Program Change form. You will be assigned an advisor in your chosen Pathway.

International students who seek extra language support may also contact the Intensive English Language Program (IELP) advisor.

Prospective transfer students who wish to do some transfer planning may connect with an advisor from the Transfer & Returning Student Resource Center. They may refer you to a Pathway advisor or Transfer Admissions Counselor for more specific questions.
