Parent Check List & Important Information
Connecting to Your Career & Your Calling
Through the Offices of Strengths & Vocation (OSV), students have the opportunity to meet with their own personal career coach. Your son or daughter can collaborate with OSV career coaches on selecting a major, writing a resume, preparing for interviews, and planning for internships. OSV also manages the student employment program on campus. The OSV team hosts networking events and employer visits, so students connect with the world beyond the university. We are committed to partnering with every student to develop into the person that God has called him or her to be.Learn more at www.pointloma.edu/life/offices-strengths-vocation.
The PLNU Parent Portal
First, to set up a parent portal account, have your student log in to his or her my.pointloma.edu account. Under the “Students” tab, have your student click on “Update Information Releases,” which is under “Profile Update.” In this setting, your student should be able to see your name under the “Financial Info” section following a six digit number (it should look like this: “[xxxxxx-Parent]”). That number is your parent ID.
Then, on the my.pointloma.edu home page (without being logged in), click on the “Parents” tab, then “Create Account.” Follow the directions, filling in the appropriate blanks. Be sure to use your parent ID as the ID number. When you finish, you will have a parent account with which you can log in. When logged in as a parent, you should be able to see a “Parents” button where you can access financial information.
If you have any questions or need additional assistance in setting up your portal, contact the PLNU Help Center at (619) 849-2222.

PLNU’s preferred hotels provide a discounted rate to PLNU family and friends and also return 10 percent of their profits back to PLNU’s University Fund for student scholarships. Make reservations early as hotel rates are based on availability and subject to a room tax. To guarantee a special rate, each guest must ask for the Point Loma Nazarene University rate at the time the reservation is made. Some black-out dates may apply. Some hotels offer free parking and others require a self-parking fee. Please inquire at the time of reservation as to whether this fee is applicable. All rates are guaranteed until December 31, 2016.
