Your first step in preparing for New Student Orientation (NSO) 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 is completed online and should take only 15-20 minutes of your time.
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.
