A Penn State Behrend studies outdoors by the Mary Behrend Monument

Whether you want to catch up on credits, get a head start on your next semester, or enroll in a course or two for professional advancement, consider taking a course or two during the dog days of summer at Penn State Behrend. You can choose from a variety of subjects and three convenient sessions, and credits can be transferred to virtually any accredited university or college.
