Advising Center - Transitioning to College

This guide provides information about making the transition to college for freshmen and transfer students.


Welcome, Knights!


We've created this guide to welcome you and support your transition to Central Penn College.  It reviews some of the aspects of campus life, including course expectations and building relationships with faculty members.  We also created a New Student Checklist to get you started on your path to success.  You can find it (and other materials) in the Quick Access Printables box on this page.  


Whether you are living on campus, commuting to campus, or taking classes on line, you will need to adapt to campus culture.  Adapting to campus culture means a variety of things from learning where you can park on campus to how to access your grades at the end of the term.  This guide is one tool to help you learn about the campus, but it doesn't cover everything.  If there's something you need to know: just ask!   


Here are some of our Keys to Success to help you during your first term:
