Transitions: College and Career Prep

If you're nervous about going back to school, or are considering a career change, this free program for adults can help you gain the skills and confidence you need to succeed. The program covers topics such as writing, student technologies, note taking and study strategies, research and presentation skills, time management, financial resources, and education planning — to help you prepare for success as you take the next step in your education or career. Learn more.


Free Math Improvement Course

As adult learners, we often return to school after years away (sometimes many!) from a formal classroom. Improving or refreshing your confidence and competence with college-level math can be just the thing you need to get you started toward success as a student. Penn State Continuing Education partners with the CIU 10 Development Center for Adults to offer a free, two-semester Math Improvement Course; Part I during the fall semester, Part II in the spring. This is a noncredit course which ideally can provide you with a foundation in Algebra and can prepare you for success in MATH 021: College Algebra I, which meets a quantification requirement for many of the non-science majors. Students looking for a slower-paced math-improvement course should consider this option. It could be an appropriate alternative to MATH 004.

Tuesday and Thursday evenings, 6:008:30 p.m.
Outreach Building
100 Innovation Blvd, State College

To register: Contact the Development Center for Adults at 814-359-3069 or the Continuing Education Office at 814-865-3443.


Advising Appointments

Your Penn State Continuing Education student services team can provide both academic advising and career counseling, in addition to financial aid counseling. We can work with you, one-on-one, to discuss your individual circumstances, employment experiences, and transferable skills, and assist you in developing a plan that can meet your needs and help you reach your goals.

You can meet with an adviser at the Continuing Education office in 128 Outreach Building, or at the Penn State Lewistown Center.
Call 814-865-3443 or 800-228-1627 to make an appointment with a member of the Continuing Education student services team.
