Advising at PSU

two people working together in KMC atrium

The Transfer and Returning Student Advisors provide a variety of services to both prospective and current undergraduate transfer and returning students. We offer academic and career advising to prospective undergraduate transfer and returning adult students, assistance in accessing PSU resources and services, as well as workshops and events specifically for current transfer and returning students. We are here to help you make the most of your transition to being a PSU student. Our staff is ready to hear how we can support you, so contact us or drop by our office at Fariborz Maseeh Hall (FMH) 342


For the Winter, Spring, and Summer 2021 terms, the Transfer and Returning Student Resource Center, in order to support the health, safety, and wellbeing of all members of the PSU community, will be operating remotely. 

Our Transfer & Returning Student Advisors are happy to meet with you virtually, by phone, or Zoom web-meeting. You can schedule a meeting by using the online appointment links below. 

Prospective Transfer Students

For prospective transfer students, we provide support connecting you to resources and getting to know PSU's general education information, as well as transfer planning and unofficial course review.

Prospective Returning Students

We provide assistance to students returning to PSU after a break in their undergraduate degree. We will review your academic history, get you connected to the appropriate advising pathway, and help you figure out your next steps.

Current Students

In many cases, current PSU students should speak with their assigned pathway advisor, particularly for long-term course planning and First-Year Mandatory Advising.
