Academic success is within your reach.

As a Penn State undergraduate, you have a vast network of support behind you.

Earning a college degree is no easy feat, but Penn State undergraduates do not have to navigate this journey alone. The Student Success Center is available to help students overcome obstacles they may face on the path to graduation so they can achieve their academic goals. While we support students from every background, we are particularly attuned to racial and gender equity and the needs of low-income, first-generation, and post-traditional students, along with students with intersecting identities. Explore our programming to learn how we can facilitate your success.
