Dear New International Students:

Greetings from PLU! Thank you so much for choosing PLU as your educational destination in the United States. You made a great choice. We are a team of current international and domestic student leaders and professional staff, planning for your arrival. We look forward to serving you and welcoming you to our community this spring.

Orientation Programs for International Students

Prior to your arrival at PLU you will receive multiple communications from a variety of PLU offices regarding orientation. Please note that the move-in date for international students living on-campus is Sunday, February 2. International Student Orientation (ISO) will take place Monday, February 3, and New Student Orientation (NSO) will take place Tuesday, February 4. Attendance to both ISO and NSO is required for all new international students.

Log into Your PLU ePass Gmail Account

As a PLU student your PLU Gmail account is a very important tool, because it is used as a primary source of communication within the PLU community. Please make sure to begin checking your account at least once a week. Further communication from our office will only be sent to your PLU ePass Gmail account. If you prefer using another email account it is easy to forward the emails received in your PLU Gmail account to another email address. To do so, follow these directions.
