Academic Advising & Winter Term Registration (Advising Locations Below)

Meet with academic advisors in a group setting as you learn about major requirements, degree requirements, and Banweb—our Student Information System. You will have the opportunity to engage with University staff and future classmates as you create your schedule.

If you did not bring a laptop or tablet with you today, join us in Millar Library 170 following Academic Advising for assistance registering for your classes.

Optional Activities

Finished with course registration? Consider participating in one (or more) of the following activities while on campus today:
Campus Tour (Departs at 4:00 pm from the Millar Library steps)

PSU can feel like a big place. Come learn the lay of the land during a campus tour hosted by our legendary Orientation Leaders. This tour will show you around the central part of campus and get you familiar with all the hot spots. Feel free to ask questions, snap photos, and get comfortable with the campus—YOUR campus!.

Get Your PSU ID Card (Western Hemlock 26)

Say “cheese” and pick up your PSU ID card today. If you don’t have time today, you can get your PSU ID card during our annual Vikings Days held September 20-24.

Disability Resource Center (SMSU 116)

The Disability Resource Center ensures students with cognitive/learning, chronic health, physical, mental health, hearing, vision, sensory, and other disabilities get the support they need to be successful at PSU. Please stop by during drop-in hours to speak with an Access Counselor & Consultant, drop off documentation from a qualified medical professional, or sign up for an appointment to happen in the near future! These drop-ins are brief 15 minute meetings where DRC staff can explain the process of registering, give an overview of accommodations and services, and explain more about how the DRC can be a partner in education with the student throughout their time at PSU.

University Housing Tour (Departs at 4:00 pm from Broadway 210)

Let a Housing guide show you around your new home.
