Advising Day Agenda

Check-in for Advising Day is at the Nesbitt Academic Commons. Parking is available in the lot in front of the Struthers Family Career Services Center and the Athletic and Recreation Building. Directions to campus and a campus map are available via links on the left side of this page.

Students and parents should plan to report to the Nesbitt Academic Commons lobby about 15 minutes early. To obtain a Penn State ID card, you will need to show valid photo identification such as driver's license or passport. (High school ID's are not acceptable.)

The agenda consists of a welcome to the campus, followed by presentations on academics, financial aid, student activities, and student services. Students will individually meet with an academic adviser to plan their first-semester schedules. A technology seminar rounds out the event. Light refreshments will be available.

Sessions for parents/family members are scheduled on strategies for supporting their Penn State students’ success. Individual financial aid advising appointments are also available, and The Penn State bookstore is open throughout the day for your convenience.

Students should prepare for Advising Day by completing the Orientation homework designed to help students understand Penn State majors and courses.

To prepare for selecting classes, we ask students to take a look at the courses listed on the schedule for the fall semester at schedule.psu.edu. (Select the desired semester and the Wilkes-Barre campus on the drop-down menus.)
