Welcome Parents and Families

The Penn State Parents Program welcomes you to the Penn State Family. We look forward to supporting you as you support your student. We are here to partner with you to ensure your student's success by:

  • Serving as a central University resource
  • Enhancing parent and family involvement opportunities
  • Providing information about the student experience at Penn State
  • Communicating regularly with families

We invite you to contact our office with any questions or concerns.

Please note that important Penn State student health insurance information will be sent to your student via email by First Risk Advisors on behalf of United HealthCare StudentResources. These messages are approved by the University, and should not be regarded as spam. Please encourage your student to watch their inbox for additional information.
