Find Your Adviser

When you come to Penn State, you’re automatically assigned an academic adviser within your respective college. Should you forget or lose your adviser’s contact information, you can always track that down on LionPATH, under Student Center, in the “Adviser” box.

If you haven’t been assigned an adviser, or if you’d prefer to speak to an adviser outside of your program, you can find more information on the program pages listed below for the next steps to take.
