Student's Right to Conduct University Business Non-Electronically

It is a student's choice whether to do business electronically with the Pennsylvania State University ("University") through LionPATH, the University's student portal. LionPATH provides University students with secure, real-time access to their academic and financial information. If you have not yet agreed to do business with the University electronically, you will be presented with the option to do so the next time you log into LionPATH.

If you choose not to agree to do business with the University electronically, you cannot use LionPATH to access your academic and financial information. Instead, you must visit or contact the University during normal business hours to conduct business. Below is contact information for select University offices, as well as a sampling of the services each office provides. You may locate contact information for other University offices using the Penn State Department Directory.

Please note that declining to provide consent will not impact the University's official mode of communication with you, which remains through the University provided email account. University communications will continue to be routed to your email address, and you will be responsible for all academic and administrative timelines provided to you in this format. Further, as a Penn State student, you are still required to utilize the University's electronic enterprise learning solutions, as well as its electronic communication and collaboration tools. If you have questions about how the University collects and uses your personal information, please refer to the University's Privacy Policy, AD53.
