Through Penn State's diverse academic colleges, Continuing Education at University Park delivers courses at convenient times and locations, and programs relevant for adults seeking a career change, professional development, and degree completion. 

We highly recommend that you meet with an academic adviser before deciding on a program of study. Your adviser can talk through your long-term goals and help you to choose the program that best meets your needs.

Students may choose to take some courses at University Park, at another campus location, or online through Penn State World Campus. Not all the courses for each of these programs may be available through Continuing Education.


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)
