Important: Course Seat Availability

Continuing Education's mission is to provide the adult learner with access to Penn State. While many of our courses are open to both Penn State students and others, we regularly hold a number of seats in these courses specifically for our adult learners. If you are viewing the Schedule of Courses and the Continuing Education course section (901, 902, 903, etc.) appears full, call Registration at 814-863-5256 to see if seats are still available.


Penn State welcomes students with disabilities to participate in its educational programs. If you anticipate needing special accommodations or have questions about physical access, please contact the Office for Disability Services (ODS) or call 814-863-1807 (V/TTY).
