 — Penn College Connections and Welcome Weekend Team


The Admissions Office is here to help guide the way. If your incoming student has any questions before the start of the semester, please reach out to admissions@pct.edu, +1.570.327.4761, or stop by SASC 1068.

Financial Aid

The Financial Aid team continues to process incoming aid applications as Fall Semester begins. Students, and parents with guest access, can view aid we apply to students’ accounts via the financial information section of SIS. If your student needs more funding, it’s not too late to consider an educational loan. We are here to help answer questions. Contact us.

The LEAP Center

The LEAP Center is now open, and the LEAP team is ready to help new (first year and transfer) students learn, evolve, adapt, and prepare for rewarding futures. New students can count on their dedicated LEAP advisers to offer guidance through regular check-ins and ongoing support. Students can also take advantage of valuable workshops on how to learn effective study strategies, stress reducing techniques, time management skills, and more. The LEAP Center is located in the Student & Administrative Services Center, Room 1049. We understand that college may be a new experience for both you and your student so we are here to help.  Encourage your student to stop in the center to connect with their adviser.  You can also look for more information about your student’s transition to Penn College so you too can be a part of their success team. 

College Health Services

All incoming Penn College students are required to meet the CDC and American College Health Association immunization guidelines prior to starting classes.  Students who have not already done so can enter immunizations and upload immunization records from their provider to myHealth Online .  Records are due on or before the date you move on campus and/or start classes, whichever comes first.  Students living on campus are not permitted to move into the residence halls without Meningococcal MCV4 documentation on file.  Failure of any student to provide immunization records will result in a scheduling hold for Spring 2022. 

COVID-19 Update

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have nimbly adapted our institutional response as the coronavirus and its variants have evolved and governmental guidance has changed. We are again at a pivotal moment when we must alter our protocols to ensure the health and safety of the entire Penn College community while preserving in-person instruction for our students.

Effective Monday, August 9, face masks will be required indoors on campus for all students, faculty, staff, and visitors. This change applies both to vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals. Masking is not required outdoors on campus.

Based on the latest available metrics (including case numbers, vaccination percentages for students and employees, test positivity rates, and the level of virus spread in Lycoming County, Pennsylvania and beyond) we will reevaluate our protocols at the end of the second week of Fall 2021 classes on August 27. Subsequent to that, rolling assessments will be made at two-week intervals during the semester, though changes will be made at any time if warranted by the data.

Beginning Monday, August 9, please check on a regular basis the Continuity of Operations Plan website, the homepage of the College website, and the daily COVID-19 case update AdminWire message for a status report on masking protocols.

Status A: Masking is required indoors for all students, employees and visitors – regardless of vaccination status.

Status B: Masking is optional for students and employees who have provided COVID-19 vaccination documentation to the College. Masking is required indoors for all others.

Students should submit proof of vaccination before coming to campus.
