The main admission periods for regular undergraduate programs at Phu Xuan University begin after the annual September 2 holiday. New students start their academic journey and participate in the "orientation week" to get acquainted with the new learning environment, professors, the university, peers, and senior students.

Next, freshmen will engage in a "Military Training Semester" lasting three weeks. This crucial time allows new students to familiarize themselves with collective life, develop teamwork habits and camaraderie, and obtain the required Military Education and National Defense certificates, mandatory for bachelor's degrees.

During the "Introduction to the Profession" semester, students will learn and familiarize themselves with the methods and tools of professional learning at Phu Xuan University and the foundational knowledge of the Information Technology field, preparing them for the next stage.
