Connect with an academic adviser

Every student has an academic adviser. Academic advisers are your best resource to help you establish your academic goals, evaluate your transfer credits, plan your courses, find internships, and connect with faculty to get involved in research.

If you are not able to visit campus prior to enrolling, you should contact the advising center in your academic college to inquire about arranging an advising appointment, reviewing transferable coursework, and scheduling your Penn State courses through your LionPath student services center.

The University College is comprised of the other 14 Penn State campuses. In order to connect with an adviser, please select the advising center based on your campus of admission.

Students with an offer of admission to the World Campus, Penn State Online can connect with their academic advisers here:


Tuition Advisory

Please be advised that a student’s tuition will increase when the Penn State transcript reflects 59.1 cumulative credits. Credits earned from sources such as Military Credit and tests, like AP or IB exams, are considered transfer credits and are included in the cumulative credit total. If the credits you are transferring or have transferred to Penn State place you above 59.1 cumulative credits after the start of the semester, your tuition will increase immediately. You will receive a bill for the additional tuition on the first day of the following month. For more information, visit the Office of the Bursar's website.
