Fall 2021 Academic Calendar

Fall Semester 2021

Classes for fall 2021 are mostly in-person. The full list of fall 2021 instructional modes is available on the Registrar’s website. The University’s priority continues to be the health and well-being of its students, faculty, staff, and local communities. Additional information about Penn State’s response to the pandemic can be found on Penn State’s Virus Info website.

Students enrolled in an in-person program in fall 2021 who cannot be on campus for unavoidable reasons (e.g., visa, travel restrictions, or health) should talk with their adviser to discuss options. In addition to speaking with their academic advisers, international students should also reach out to International Students and Scholars Advising in Global Programs if they are unable to be on campus.

Graduate students can find more detailed information and the latest updates on the Graduate School’s COVID-19 page.

Note: The deadline for Temporary Change of Campus to Penn State World Campus has passed as of August 20, 2021. Reach out to your adviser to discuss remaining options.
