Welcome to PLNU!

New Student Orientation (NSO) is an important milestone for students and their families as they begin their journey with PLNU. While NSO looks different this year than others, PLNU is committed to making this ceremonial rite-of-passage as important and relational as ever. NSO sessions will be hosted virtually, either filmed in advance and posted online or hosted live via Zoom, such as Dr. Brower’s opening session, general sessions with faculty, parent sessions, and chapel and covenant ceremonies.

The PLNU App is now available to download! Hosted in the app you'll be able to learn more about your academic department, resources, and the culture of PLNU. It can also help you stay up-to-date with the NSO schedule and important information.

Disability Accommodations

PLNU is dedicated to providing students with disabilities access to the programs, services, and activities of the university, as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (1990) and Amendment (2008), and by Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act (1973). The Disability Resource Center (DRC) provides reasonable accommodations so otherwise qualified students with disabilities may, as independently as possible, meet the demands of university life.

For accommodation requests, contact the DRC at drc@pointloma.edu. Please send requests as soon as possible.
