Welcome to Shawnee State University!

Are you planning to become a Shawnee Bear? We are thrilled you've chosen Shawnee State University and we can't wait to see you on campus this fall!

We've changed our new student orientation program this summer to keep students, staff, and guests safe. You may now review your class schedule, meet with a financial aid counselor, and learn about campus resources from the comfort of your home! Our advisors, admissions associates and financial aid counselors are here for you every step of the way.

It all starts with registering for New Student Orientation! Log in to your MySSU account and click the Orientation tab.

You'll be asked to complete a survey. This will alert your advisor to reserve your spot in the Fall 2020 class and create a personalized class schedule for you.

If you have not yet completed your application to Shawnee State University, you can apply for admission online.

About Orientation

Orientation is your official welcome as a new student and is designed to help you succeed. We've replaced our campus orientation day with remote advising, 1:1 financial aid phone consultations, and an online orientation platform where you'll learn about resources available to you. In addition to our remote orientation, we've expanded our Weekend of Welcome for this fall to make sure you are all set!
