Penn State’s Summer Start program was designed to help students fill in any gaps created by a shortened a senior year, all while earning early college credits.

Orientation provides students and their families with an understanding of the University’s academic structure, degree programs, and course offerings. As part of the orientation process, students will have an individual appointment with a Penn State Mont Alto adviser who will support them in registering for upcoming classes.

Jump Start is a program designed to give student a “jump start” transitioning into the University setting. Students will have the opportunity to build on their math and English skills through a summer virtual program; earn their university required  PSU-8 credit through an extended orientation; and work closely with Jump Start faculty and staff throughout their first academic year and beyond.

Commuter students are a large part of our campus, and keeping them engaged in campus life and activites is important to us.  The Commuter Engagement Experience is the perfect opportunity to take advantage of the required activities of Welcome Weekend Kick-Off while living on campus and earn your First-Year Seminar (PSU-8) credit requirement.

We are ready to help you make the most of your first year at Penn State Mont Alto.
