Transfer & Commuter Student Services

Prior to setting foot on campus as a new student, you will receive special communications about activities and opportunities to engage. We will stay connected throughout your time at PLNU to ensure a successful transition into our welcoming and active community.

If you have questions about transferring to PLNU, please contact the Office of Admissions.

  • Couches, tables, and chairs
  • Free coffee brewed daily before noon (bring a reusable cup)
  • Snacks for just 50¢ all day

Transfer Activities Group

The Transfer Activities Group (TAG) offers many social activities for transfer students past or present who desire to make connections and lasting friendships. If you choose to be a part of TAG, you can guarantee your transfer process will be smoother and less stressful, so take advantage of it! Look out for free or discounted events throughout the semester you can attend on your own or with friends.

A unique benefit of TAG is the opportunity to be connected with someone who transferred to PLNU a semester or two before you. Your “mentor” will stay in contact with you to make sure you feel connected and supported during your transition. He or she is there to help with any questions, academically or otherwise, and to assist in connecting you with the right ministries, clubs, or programs on campus.
