As a new Mansfield University student, it is important that you follow ALL the steps below:
Step 1 Understanding what Orientation is:
The journey begins at the base of the mountain... it is our mission, through New Student Orientation and New Student Welcome, to provide you, as MOUNTAINEERS, the tools, resources, and support necessary to make your voyage successful. You will be most successful if you understand the expectations of being a college student. You must know how to get involved, how to meet new people, when and where to get advising, how to select your courses, and how to understand some of the issues you might face as you enter the Mansfield University Family.
What is Orientation and what do you need to know to get started?
Understanding your options:
Participation in an Orientation is mandatory. Mansfield University is committed to your success as a student, and Orientation will provide you with the tools, resources, and support necessary to be successful.
Please note: Please limit the number of individuals and items you bring with you to Orientation due to spacing restrictions. Thank you in advance for your understanding.
Figuring out when Orientation is (registration is mandatory and can be completed in Step 4):
Spring 2017 (January start)
During Orientation those students who are required to take an English placement exam and/or a Math placement exam will be given the appropriate time to do so. Both of the placement exams are mandatory if you are required to test. The exams are web-based.
If you have already taken a college-level Math and/or English course, you could be exempt from taking either or both of these tests. It is important that you request that an official transcript be sent to the admissions office from the college you took the course. AP scores will need to be sent to the admissions office as soon as possible.
For more information on testing please contact your admissions counselor at 570-662- 4243
Mansfield University is committed to supplying appropriate accommodations. Should you need academic/testing accommodations, please contact the placement testing supervisor prior to your designated Orientation.
