Complete Your Educational Planning Survey

After you take your ALEKS Math Assessment, your next step is to complete your Educational Planning Survey. This survey is conducted to help academic advisers prepare to discuss your educational plans with you during NSO. The survey should only take about 15-20 minutes to complete.

The Educational Planning Survey consists of multiple-choice questions about:

  • your main reason for attending college;
  • your reasons for choosing Penn State;
  • your choice of major;
  • your estimated grade-point average at the end of your first year at Penn State; and
  • the number of hours a week you expect to study at Penn State.

Note: An active Access Account is required for the Educational Planning Survey. Instructions were sent via email from identity [at] for you to activate your account. A Friends of Penn State (FPS) account will not work.
