Parents and Families

Penn State Harrisburg is committed to building a collaborative partnership with the families of our students for the common goal of student learning, development, and success. Our aim is to provide the students' family support unit with information regarding College resources and programming that assists students in developing the skills and knowledge that prepare them for success in life.

Parent and Family Experience

We are excited to offer the Parent and Family Experience, a portal designed to share resources and communicate with you during your student’s time at Penn State.

The Parent and Family Experience provides you with a rich online experience you can personalize to fit your needs. Within the portal, you can make selections to see relevant news and information. In addition to news, the portal connects users to resources about topics such as University announcements, academics, health and safety, financial aid, and events. If you have students at more than one campus, you can select more than one campus when completing the onboarding process. If you do not receive the welcome email, you can sign up for the portal manually.
