Your Transition to Penn State York

Your Transition to Penn State York

Your Successful Transition to Penn State Begins Here!

Mrs. Sheri Yoder, the Global Education Coordinator at Penn State York, is available to answer any questions you might have regarding your transition to our campus at slb65@psu.edu. Her job is to help you prepare to come to Penn State and serve you while you are studying at our York campus. There are many details that need to be coordinated to prepare for your arrival at the York campus:

  • Review the Pre-Arrival Task List: Read the information in each category first and then email Sheri Yoder with any questions you have.
  • Visit Penn State’s Office of Global Programs website at global.psu.edu. Many of your questions about your transition to the United States and our campus will be answered on these sites.
  • Plan to arrive in time for New International Student Orientation, which begins on Monday, August 19. Orientation is mandatory, so plan to arrive a few days prior to August 19.
  • Purchase your airline tickets early. If you want Penn State to provide transportation for you, fly into Baltimore-Washington International Airport (BWI) or Dulles International Airport (IAD). We will pick students up at the airport on Thursday, August 15 and Friday, August 16. Check the pre-arrival guide for more details about times and locations.
