Penn State Parents and Families Information Collection

As the parent or guardian of a Penn State student, you are a part of our community. We encourage all parents and families to keep your contact information up-to-date with the Parents Program, so we can let you know about upcoming events in your area and at University Park, networking opportunities for parents and families, and important dates and information that pertains to your student.

To get started, please complete the form below. And, if your contact information changes while your student is at Penn State, please return to update your information with the Parents Program.

Notes for New Penn State Parents:

  • In order to complete this form, your student must have accepted their offer of admission to Penn State, University Park campus. Please note: this form is specific only to University Park students. If your student is attending another Penn State campus, you will not be able to complete this form and will receive an error message.
  • Please allow two business days for your student’s admissions deposit to be processed by the University before filling out this form. This site cannot accept entries until your student’s status is updated.
  • You will need your student’s Penn State ID number to logon.
  • Additionally, to ensure you receive future communications from the Parents Program, please add to your address book. You will begin to get correspondence from the Parents Program a few months prior to your student’s first semester.
  • Finally, please visit our Parents of New Students page to learn more about first steps for students and parents as you begin your Penn State journey!
