TRSRC Advising

Welcome to the TRSRC advising. We are looking forward to meeting with you!

For prospective transfer students, we provide support connecting to resources and getting to know PSU's general education information, as well as transfer planning and unofficial course review.

For returning students, we provide assistance to students returning to PSU after a break in their undergraduate degree. We will review your academic history, get you connected to the appropriate advising pathway, and help you figure out your next steps.

In many cases, current PSU students should speak with their assigned pathway advisor, particularly for long-term course planning and First-Year Mandatory Advising.

Please note that all appointments are 45 minutes. If you need an evening appointment, please email and indicate a day you would like to meet.
