The fall semester is beginning, and it’s important to keep in mind some tips that will help you get off to a smooth start. Take a look at some things that should be at the top of your agenda.
1. Find a Proctor
Proctors are an important part of the World Campus experience when taking exams. It’s essential that you know what a proctor is, how to find one, and how to change one. Take a look at this post for more information about proctors.
2. Be Aware of the Financial Implications of Dropping a Course
Dropping courses can have financial implications that you must be aware of. Be sure to know these implications as you begin your courses this semester. Check out this post to review the effect it may have on you.
3. Know When Courses Appear in ANGEL
Your courses will be hosted on ANGEL, but even though you can access the site, it does not mean you will have immediate access to your courses. Courses will become available, usually, on the course start date by 10:00 a.m. (EST). If you don’t see your courses in ANGEL by then, feel free to contact the HelpDesk to check the course status.
4. Always Use Your Penn State Email When Contacting Penn State Staff or Faculty
The staff at the University will only correspond with you through your Penn State email. Be sure to use this email address when contacting instructors and staff at Penn State.
