The Complete Penn State Program

The Complete Penn State (CPS) program supports Penn State students who are within their final two semesters of completing their first associate's or bachelor's degree and who are either currently enrolled and students who have taken time off and are looking to re-enroll.

Which form is right for you?

  • Complete Penn State Application/Referral - This application is for currently enrolled or very recently enrolled students OR a member of Penn State's faculty, staff, or administration and would like to refer a student
     
  • Re-Enrollment Support Request - This form is for previously enrolled Penn State students who took time off, and no longer have an active student account (ID# and access ID). The re-enrollment request is the first step toward receiving Complete Penn State support.
