Office of Graduate and Undergraduate Studies

The Office of Graduate and Undergraduate Studies provides strategic direction and management for the complete academic experience in the college.

We manage a variety of services and programs to promote academic success across all aspects of undergraduate and graduate education by providing direction to several the college’s academic offices, including:

Services Provided

All students should act with a mutual commitment to personal integrity, respect other students’ dignity, rights, and property, and help create and maintain an environment in which all can succeed and earn the trust and respect of others. This includes honesty and responsibility in representing your own work and acknowledging the contribution of others. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously.

It is the graduating student's responsibility to notify the University of their intent to graduate through LionPATH at the beginning of the semester in which the student plans to graduate. Check the Academic Calendar for the dates when students can activate their intent to graduate.

If a student who wishes to question or challenge the grade assigned in a course and it cannot be resolved with the instructor, the undergraduate or graduate student may seek further review from the associate dean for the college offering the course and request a formal grade adjudication process by completing a Grade Adjudication Petition Form.

The submissions of courses, either temporary or permanent, follows the Penn State Faculty Senate submission and approval processes. If you are interested in improving existing courses as well as support innovative and timely new course proposals, you must contact Cindy Bierly for each corresponding area. The procedures vary widely for each area and committee review is required within the college.
