Transfer Students

Welcome Transfer Students - two students looking at schedule


September 2 – 6, 2016


New Student Orientation (or NSO) is a time to learn about the resources you will need to be successful during your time at PLU and to make connections with your fellow Lutes. All new transfer students are highly encouraged to participate in all days of NSO. In the four days before classes begin, you will engage with current students, other new students, PLU faculty, and staff as we invite you into your new PLU community. We look forward to meeting you all and being a part of your collegiate experience.
