Link UP

Link UP is a day-long visit program for first- and second-year students at any of Penn State's undergraduate campuses that are interested (or approved) for a campus change. Throughout the day, students will participate in a variety of sessions designed to provide necessary information required to make a successful campus change here at Penn State. You will learn about the change-of-campus experience, various campus resources, and begin to develop an understanding of what you need to know to make a successful transition. Depending on your progress towards your campus change goals, there will be one of two tracks for you to follow:

Track 1 is designed for students interested in learning more about the change-of-campus process.

Track 2 is designed for students who are approved (or are on track to be approved) for a campus change.

Sign-ups for Link UP, including transportation to University Park, will begin on Monday, February 7 and are handled individually at each of the commonwealth campuses. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. If you are interested in attending Link UP, please talk to your current academic adviser at your current campus or visit your campus's link below:
