A Partnership for Student Success

These are exciting (and perhaps a bit nerve-wracking) times as you adjust to the transition of your student into young adulthood. Penn State Altoona recognizes that parents and families play an integral part in the educational success of our students.

It is our hope that you will join in partnership with us to help provide the necessary support for their academic and personal growth and success. The Parents and Families site will help you stay informed and connected to the college and your student.

Guidelines for Emergencies

In the event of a campus emergency, Penn State Altoona posts news and other official information as quickly as possible on www.altoona.psu.edu. Understandably, parents and families want information about their student quickly; utilizing the Web site, including its subscription features through text messaging, RSS feeds, is the easiest method for obtaining the most accurate information available.
