COVID-19 Support Get Urgent Help


What is COVID-19 Student Support Services?

Student Support Services provides assistance and support to all Penn State students who have been placed in isolation due to COVID-19. The Case Managers work to assist students with faculty notification, access to resources, and general support resources during their time isolation.

What can a student expect?

After Contact Tracing notifies a student of their isolation, Student Support Services will contact the student via an introduction email with information and resources. In addition, Student Support Services will: 

  • Notify faculty to inform that the student is not permitted to attend class until they are released from isolation
  • Reach out to the student via phone to check in, review expectations, and provide resources

How can I contact Student Support Services?
