Class of 2025 Welcome to Puget Sound!

We will be welcoming new and transfer students back in person in August 2021. We are looking forward to an in person orientation experience with new and transfer students. There will be minor changes to the schedule as we keep the health of students, families, staff, faculty and the Tacoma community at the fore front of our planning.

Passages is the orientation program for new and transfer students. Passages is a big week long series  to connect new students with each other, leaders and the campus community. Students sign up so that they can decide on which types of activities they prefer. Students who have completed their deposit can register for Passages via their To Do list in their myPugetSound portal. Please register via the to do list in your myPugetSound portal. Students will find their personal schedule for Passages in the portal

Here is more information about the arrival process, testing and vaccination guidelines.
