Important Information-Summer Session

Welcome to Penn State Behrend. We're pleased that you are joining us for summer session 2017. Here are just a few quick notes:

  • Make sure you obtain a Penn State photo identification card. This can be obtained from the Housing and Food office in Senat Hall. Take along another form of picture identification.
  • If you are planning to return to your own institution, courses taken will need to be transferred to your college. If you plan to remain at Behrend for the fall semester, your summer course(s) become a part of your academic record.
  • If you are a current Penn State student, courses taken will automatically become a part of your Penn State transcript; there is no need for transfer of credits. Grades will be calculated as part of your Penn State grade point average.
  • Current tuition and fee information can be obtained at the Bursar’s web page or by calling the Penn State Behrend Bursar’s office, 814-898-6224.
  • If you are having difficulty with any class, seek assistance from the Learning Resource Center.
  • A summer parking pass is required for on-campus parking. Contact Police Services. There will be no charge for this pass. Keep in mind you can take public transportation and reduce your carbon footprint. Show your Penn State ID and ride the "e" for free!
  • Check your email for fun summer activities planned by the Office of Student Activities.
  • Campus Map (pdf).
  • For a list of campus services and offices, view Important Information For Summer Students (pdf).
