Testing and Advising

As part of your enrollment at the University, transfer students will participate in applicable placement testing and academic advising with their college advising centers.

Academic Advising

Each incoming student will meet individually with an academic advisor within your respective college, the College of Arts and Sciences, the Kania School of Management, or the Panuska College of Professional Studies. In this meeting, you will review your fall schedule, go over your academic goals, and resolve any questions you have about academics at the University. 

Placement Testing

Depending on your intended major and any transfer credits you are awarded, you may be required to take a placement exam.
