Prospective Students

So... you're thinking about Penn State Hazleton?

Then you should know that Penn State Hazleton provides the academic opportunities of The Pennsylvania State University, a Big Ten University with an international reputation, in a mountaintop setting as intimate and comfortable as a small college. 

You should also know that you can complete your associate or bachelor's degree here, or you can complete the first two years of a bachelor's program and then finish at another Penn State campus, like University Park, in the 2+2 program.

Whichever option you choose, while you are here, you will enjoy small class sizes, talented and caring faculty and staff, and a host of campus life opportunities.

Take a look and see what other opportunities we have to offer!
