Penn State Shenango's New Student Orientation (NSO) provides online testing for placement as well as a thorough academic advising and educational planning program. Students will be invited to this program by letter within a few weeks of completing their online NSO testing.
The academic advising and educational planning component of NSO consists of a half-day session that students and families are invited to attend. Students will meet one-on-one with a faculty adviser, receive an interpretation of their testing results, schedule classes for Fall, and receive general campus information.
Families are strongly urged to participate in this portion of NSO, especially to get acquainted with campus policies, procedures, and services.
Please note that students should complete the online testing program by May.
If you have any questions, please contact the Division of Undergraduate Studies at (724) 983-2860.
