For Students

The Student Success and Advising Office contacts each freshman prior to the beginning of the semester to register for classes. The first scheduling appointment is completed with the Advising Office. After that, each student is assigned an Advisor within his/her chosen program, and students contact their Advisor prior to scheduling classes for subsequent semesters. It is important for students to meet with Advisor’s to be sure they are taking classes required for their timely graduation and to answer questions about internships, leadership applications, or to obtain answers to other important questions. After the first semester, students can register for their classes online after meeting with their Advisor.

What can I do to be successful?

If you have any further questions, please contact Jenna Weyandt in Student Success and Advising at (814) 886-6398.

For Parents and Guidance Counselors

The Academic Advising office contacts each Freshman student before the beginning of the semester to register for classes. The first scheduling appointment is completed on paper with the Advising Office. The student is assigned an Advisor within his/her chosen program and it will be the student’s responsibility to contact their Advisor before being able to schedule classes for subsequent semesters. It is important for students to meet with their Advisors because they ensure the student is taking classes that are required for his/her major and that timely graduation can occur. After the first semester, students register for their classes online after completing an Advising meeting.
