Success is your goal. Getting you there is ours.
At Penn State Behrend, students are our 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 you are happy and on the path to success.
We'll also help you brainstorm where to start in your journey to being more successful—that might mean working with you on time management, academic habits, and learning strategies, or even increasing motivation and avoiding procrastination.
Parents: We also strive to keep you informed and make you more at ease by providing regular communication and resources to ensure your student is safe and getting the most out of their education.
