Congratulations on your admission to Penn State Greater Allegheny.

Our orientation programs introduce students to Penn State academics and student life. You will meet with faculty and staff to begin to develop goals for your time at Penn State.  New Student Orientation also introduces students to campus resources and assists you in course scheduling for your first semester.  

Please choose the appropriate category below to learn the steps in making the transition to Penn State.

You should have set up your Penn State Access Account utilizing Quick ID (QID) when you accepted your offer of admission. If you did so outside of MyPennState, (via check or in-person) log in to MyPennState, and complete that process. You will receive a series of three emails on how to do so. This is different from the Friends of Penn State (FPS) account you created to apply to Penn State. Please complete this process before you begin New Student Orientation.  This will allow you to schedule your courses without delay, get your Penn State student ID, and will also provide access to your Penn State email account.  If you are having trouble, call the IT Service Desk at 1-814-865-4357.
