Your PUC Adventure is Just Around the Corner!

Organ 1

In just a few days, you will be here on campus for New Student Orientation, meeting your fellow classmates, talking with your advisor, and getting situated in your new dorm room. We’re here to make that transition as seamless as possible!

If you haven’t already done so, be sure to take care of these things when you arrive:

Get financially cleared & turn in your health forms
Stop by the Student Finance office to make sure all your required financial documents have been turned in and you’re financially cleared to start school. Better yet, contact them ahead of time at studentfinance@puc.edu or 707.965.7200 to potentially save yourself a trip.

You are required to provide PUC with your medical history and insurance information. Get this taken care of by submitting the Health Information Form. If you need to make an appointment with the Health Services office for a physical, contact them at healthservices@puc.edu or at 707.965.6339.

You can use your WebAdvisor account to see what documents PUC has on file for you (“My Documents”) and view your class schedule (“My Class Schedule”). Take a look at our “The Basics of Your WebAdvisor Account” post for a short tutorial on how to use your account. PLEASE NOTE: If you fail to provide PUC with the necessary financial information by 4:30 PM on the second day of school, you will be dropped from your classes.

Talk with your advisor
Thursday afternoon during Orientation, you will meet with your advisor and go over your fall schedule as well as start planning for winter and spring. Every quarter your advisor will need to approve your schedule, which is a great safety net for making sure you stay on track to complete your degree!

Taking care of these things will make your life this week much easier and will allow you to focus on creating memories during Orientation that will last a lifetime. Check out the online Start Guide for a list of more things you can work on before and after getting to campus.
