    We can’t wait to meet you and share with you all the things that make Penn State Altoona a great place to pursue your college degree!

    If you are interested in Accounting, Business, Communications, Cybersecurity, Entrepreneurship, Nursing, Rail Transportation Engineering, or Security and Risk Analysis, you’ll want to make sure to visit our downtown campus.  You can take our free shuttle bus to the downtown campus, and visit our Sheetz Center for Entrepreneurial Excellence, nursing simulation lab, communications studios, and classrooms and labs space.  Information about the bus shuttle schedule, as well as parking information if you choose to drive on your own, will be provided in your registration packet.

    End your day by joining our current students and their families for the Family Weekend Carnival!
