Students - Our desire is that you focus your efforts on academics, not administrative matters. Our goal is to provide you with the best possible service delivered to you on your terms.

Alumni - Whether you are interested in resuming enrollment at Penn State, or are in need of an official transcript for employment, professional certification, or other purposes, our goal is to provide you with efficient service and complete information.

Parents - Penn State's basic position is that your child is independent. Federal legislation limits the information we may share with you regarding your student. Please examine the Information for Parents for additional information.

Faculty and Staff - This website provides extensive information related to LionPATH (the student information system), enrollment reporting, information technology documentation and various policies and procedures. Many of these information services are secure sites that require prior authorization before access is allowed. Please visit our Faculty/Staff section for access to these services.
