PaceBound Fall 2020 Checklist

News Story

Ready for the fall, #PaceBound Setters? We can’t wait to welcome you! Be sure to review our handy checklist to make sure you’re all set before you arrive. There are many exciting things to see and do leading up to the big day.

1. Register for Orientation

Orientation is one of the most important milestones of your time here at Pace. It’s a special event that will introduce you to all things student life like opportunities and resources, residential move-in information, student-run clubs and organizations, a wide variety of events, and so much more. Your journey to Pace starts now! Once you’ve made your deposit, you will receive an Orientation email with instructions on how to register.

2. Explore PaceBound Online

Before (and even after!) you attend Orientation, be sure to register for PaceBound Online. It’s a platform exclusively for incoming Setters where you can chat with current students, ask questions about their Pace experience, learn more about the resources available to you, check out upcoming events, and more. The opportunities are endless! There’s even a discussion board where you can connect with potential roommates and meet your peers. Now is the time when you will be making life-long friends.

3. Complete Your Placement Testing

Placement testing ensures incoming students enroll in coursework best suited to them. Pace considers several factors including AP credit, transfer credit, final high school transcripts, and placement tests administered prior to Orientation to make sure you sign up for the appropriate classes. Read carefully to see which of our online placement tests you should take! You can also consult with your advisor if you’re unsure about the process. They’re here to help.

4. Fill Out the Enrollment Checklist

Every incoming Pace student is assigned a personalized checklist specific to your place in the process. Be sure to review what you might still be missing, and confirm the tasks you have already completed. We’re so excited to welcome you in the fall, and we want to make sure you’re all set before your arrival.

5. Get Your Questions Answered

Still have questions? No problem. Fill out a form on PaceBound Online or reach out to the specific team you might be looking for. It’s important to check your Pace email frequently, too! Many messages will be sent to you there, and we wouldn’t want you to miss out.

Also: don’t forget to use #PaceBound or tag the Pace University Twitter and Instagram accounts when celebrating your acceptance. We look forward to hearing from you!
