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 bachelors degree here, or you can complete the first two years of study of a bachelor's program and then finish at another 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.
