Welcome to our Summer Advisement Information Site for newly admitted full-time first-year students. As a new student, I am sure you have many questions and even a few anxieties about the start of your college career. Hopefully, the information provided here will address your questions and give you a sense of preparedness before you arrive on campus. Please take some time to read through the information on this page and the information found by clicking on the various links.
To get started, allow me to tell you a little about Summer Advisement. It is a one day program designed to help first-year students transition smoothly from high school to King’s College. During Summer Advisement, you will meet one-on-one with an academic advisor in the advisor session to discuss your major (if you have chosen one) and to understand what is meant by the terms: core requirements, major requirements, and free electives. You will also receive your fall class schedule and have the opportunity to discuss the classes for which you are registered. Other activities planned for the day include: a team building session with your new classmates, an academic session, and a technology session.
The day begins at 9:00 a.m. and concludes at approximately 3:00 p.m. Lunch will be served at noon in The Marketplace or Connerton’s. Listed below are the dates for this year’s Summer Advisement so that you may begin to plan your summer.

In May, you will receive a letter from the Academic Advisement Office. This letter will provide more detailed information explaining how to access the Summer Advisement Portal where you will complete the necessary Student Questionnaire, Core/Honors Curriculum Survey and the Placement Test(s)* (if required). These tasks must be completed before you can schedule your Summer Advisement appointment from the dates listed above. The deadline date to complete the questionnaire, survey, and placement tests is Friday, June 5, 2015.
Hint: You will have a better opportunity to register for your preferred date, if you complete all tasks in a timely matter.
*Accommodations, such as extra time, can be arranged by contacting the Academic Skills Center (570)-208-5841) prior to a student attempting the placement test(s) online.
