Student Success

Success is your goal. Getting you there is ours.

Student Success 3At Penn State Behrend, our students are the top priority. Whether you’re having trouble in a particular class, are unsure if you’re in the right major, or just need someone to talk to, we’re here to help. We offer tutoring, academic advising, personal counseling and all kinds of other services to make sure our students are happy and on the path to success. We also strive to make parents more informed and at ease by providing regular communication and resources to help them ensure their student is safe and getting the most out of their education.
