In order to ensure that students transferring to Pace University begin their coursework at the appropriate level, we administer online placement tests in writing, math, and certain modern languages.
You will be notified by your Academic Advisor if you are required to take a placement test. Please visit the Center for Academic Excellence Placement Testing web page if you need to take a placement test.
What To Expect at Orientation
Orientation is designed to give you an introduction to the University and prepare you for your first semester of classes. You will have the opportunity to meet future classmates, learn about campus life, internship opportunities, study abroad, and more!
Mandatory Immigration Session for F-1 Visa Holders
Regardless of which Orientation session you attend, all undergraduate international students on an F-1 visa who are first-time students at Pace must also attend the mandatory immigration session on September 1st at 3:00 p.m. in the Kessel Student Center.
This session will focus on immigration regulations pertaining to international students on F-1 visa, visa applicable benefits and restrictions. After the session, new international students will join other first-year students for first-year student Orientation.
