Out of State Orientation: California and Hawaii

Are you a new student coming from California or Hawaii? Join us at an Out of State Orientation session. These are full-day programs during which you will participate in group advising, register for your first term classes, and meet other students coming to PSU from your area. All the fun of orientation without leaving your state!  

Please note: There is a $50 fee for each student and guest attending our out-of-state orientation sessions. This fee helps to cover the cost of hosting the session in your area, as well as the provided meals and materials. You will receive a link to submit payment in your confirmation email.

Student Veteran Lunch Reception

We’re thrilled to be partnering with PSU’s Veterans Resource Center (VRC) to host our Student Veteran Lunch Reception prior to orientation from 12 - 1 pm. These lunch receptions, hosted by current VRC staff and students, are encouraged for all incoming student veterans.

We are partnering with Little Vikings, an on-campus child care facility, to provide child care for both transfer orientation sessions. Instructions to make your reservation will be provided during the sign-up process.
