NSO Information

NSO is a great experience designed to help students and parents/guests become acclimated to university life. First you check in – then you check out everything PLNU has to offer you over your years here. Meet new friends and your professors, ask questions, collect information, and explore options. It is our way of welcoming you to the PLNU community.

NSO Parent/Guest Hotel Information

For hotel information, links, sponsors and more, check out the Hotel Partnerships of PLNU and Visitor's Guide and Sponsors.

Your Major

All students are encouraged to select a major in an area of study they plan to pursue or in which they have an interest even if their choice is tentative. Click here for a list of majors, minors and concentrations.

Student Handbook

PLNU's Student Handbook has been designed to answer questions relating to student life and is a valuable resource as you begin your university experience. Visit Student Handbook and spend some time becoming familiar with PLNU's opportunities and expectations.
