Welcome to Puget Sound!

We will be welcoming new and transfer students to campus on Friday, August 18, 2023. There may be minor changes to the schedule as we keep the health of students, families, staff, faculty, and the Tacoma community at the forefront of our planning and respond to any updated public health recommendations.
