Will I have access to faculty?

With an average class size of just 25 students, students find it very easy to keep in touch and develop strong relationships with faculty. All faculty keep office hours equal to the hours they're in the classroom. Information about the faculty member's office hours is always included in the course syllabus, and students are encouraged to take advantage of this time. In addition, students can email their questions to faculty. Learn about our talented, diverse faculty by visiting the faculty page.

If I'm having trouble in class, how do I get help?

The Center for Academic Achievement (CAA) at Penn State Beaver is a resource for students who are having difficulty with a particular course as well as for students who aim to maintain a high academic standing. Also, if a student is having trouble in a class, he/she should speak directly with the faculty member. The CAA provides information and academic enrichment for all students seeking assistance in writing, math, science, and nearly all other courses offered at Penn State Beaver. Assistance may be provided by a professional academic assistant or by a trained student assistant, and all CAA services are free.

I have a disability. Whom should I contact at Penn State Beaver to discuss disability issues?

Will my parents have access to my grades?
