Undergraduate Admission

Pace University is excited that you will be joining our community for the Fall 2016 semester. Orientation is a crucial part of the undergraduate admission process. In addition to beginning the course registration process, Orientation helps new students learn all about Pace's services and programs and meet future classmates.

After you have made your tuition deposit, you will be mailed an Orientation packet in the middle of May that will contain the necessary log-in information for access to our Orientation Registration System, as well as additional information about your next steps. Please note, international students will receive this information via email.

Orientation sessions and placement exams are tailored to the needs of different student types. We offer unique programs geared toward first-year, transfer, and international students and their families/guests.
For information and to register for Orientation, please select your student type from below: All first-year students should take their placement tests by Wednesday, June 1, 2016 (or within 10 days of receiving the Pre-Registration Instruction and Advising guide, whichever is later). Transfer students should take these tests as instructed.

GLOBAL PATHWAYS PROGRAM: If you have been admitted to the Global Pathways Program you do not need to register for Orientation through this website. Please visit Global Pathways for more information and to register for Global Pathways Orientation.   
iPace Students: If you have been admitted to an iPace Online Bachelor’s Degree Completion Program, please visit the iPace Accepted Student page.



Placement Testing

Pace requires placement testing in writing and math for all new students. The possible exemption from placement testing for new students is based on the review of your math and English courses transferred from other universities and/or AP scores/courses. In some cases we also require placement testing in Modern Languages when a student is not transferring college credits for a language and is planning to resume study of a language studied in high school for at least two full years.
Details on placement testing for both first-year students and those students with transfer credit will be sent to you once we receive your tuition deposit. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please call:
