The Penn State Parents Program is pleased to welcome you to the Penn State Family. We are here to partner with you in order to ensure student success. It is our goal to:
Explore the program website for more information about Parents & Families Weekend, getting involved while your student is at Penn State and answers to frequently asked questions.
The Parents Program communicates important information about what's happening with your student, opportunities, and available resources through the Parent & Family Experience, which is a new portal designed with your needs in mind. To create an account and set-up your profile, please visit the Parents & Family Experience website. Once you create an account, you will be able to select how often you receive emails as well as the type of information you receive from the Penn State Parents Program.
If your email address or contact information changes, please update this information on your Parents and Families Experience profile and our office will be notified of the change.
For more information, visit our communications page.
The Parents Program is here to support you as your student attends Penn State. Please contact us with concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org or 814-863-1313.
