Use Update Campus on LionPATH to change to a different campus:
- After completing Update Academics to change into a major that is offered at University Park or another location
- After receiving conditional approval into a major
- To change to a campus (other than University Park) for a personal reason, such as being closer to home
Completing Update Campus after the drop/add deadline at the beginning of the semester is recommended. Completing it before the drop/add deadline will result in tuition recalculation for the current semester.
If a student is able to get a full-time schedule at the current location, early change of campus requests to University Park are usually not approved. There needs to be an academic reason to go to University Park earlier than the fifth semester,
A change of campus can be temporary, for one semester, or permanent.
Change of campus requests are reviewed by the Penn State Altoona Registrar's office and the campus that you would like to attend.
If 44.5 credits or more have been completed when Update Campus was submitted, it is an automatic approval. If less than 44.5 credits have been completed at the time of the request, the change of campus request will be reviewed. An email is sent regarding the outcome of the request.
Students can attend any Penn State location for summer courses without completing Update Campus.
