What is academic advising?
Penn State’s Academic Advising Program is designed to help students set educational goals, use resources to discover academic opportunities, and connect those opportunities to your goals. Through academic advising, you will think about the purposes, processes and results of your education.
Penn State Greater Allegheny's Advising Office is located in the first floor of the Frable Building.
Students who are exploring or undecided about their academic college and/or major, consult with the Division of Undergraduate Studies (DUS) advisers. DUS encourages students to meet their academic potential through well-informed educational planning, as well as through meaningful experiences.
DUS also provides oversight for all advising programs for the Greater Allegheny campus, including meeting all new students during NSO (New Student Orientation) and Welcome Week events.
Learn how to explore your academic choices, make informed decisions, and manage a total Penn State experience.
