Change of Campus and Transition Services

Some students will start at Penn State DuBois and complete their degree here.  Others, will complete one or two years and transition to another Penn State campus location such as University Park.  We understand that this transition period is a crucial time in a students college career.  It is important for students to make a successful transition to stay on track and to settle in at their new campus successfully.  We provide the following services to assist in these matters.

If you are a student changing your assignment to another campus from DuBois and need assistance contact:Rebecca Pennington, Director of Student Affairs, at (814) 375-4766 or email [email protected].

Change of Campus Programs

LINK UP - a University-wide program designed to help make your transition to University Park a seamless process.  Current commonwealth campus students involved in the 2 + 2 program are encouraged to attend a day at University Park campus to learn about housing, student involvement, majors and careers.  Watch your email for the date for the LINK UP trip.  More information about reserving a spot will be sent via email to students.  For questions, contact Rebecca Pennington, Director of Student Affairs at [email protected] .

Transition Trip -This event is for students making the transition to University Park in the fall semester.  Students will travel to University Park and participate in a tour of campus (both driving and walking). In addition, students will visit key areas on campus such as the registrar, bursar, library, student activities and career services.  They will also enjoy lunch with a former DuBois student who has successfully transitioned to University Park. Finally, students can take their fall semester schedules on the trip and we will show them their classroom buildings, etc.  This event takes place typically in May.
