Fall 2016 or Later Applicants

With the University's transition to LionPATH for administrative data, applicants for the Fall 2016 semester or later may be required to adjust their applications with some required action. The Friends of Penn State account you created to complete your application will need to be updated to a more secure account. You will receive an email with the following message:
"From: The Graduate School <>
Subject: Important Application Account  Information from The Graduate School at Penn State

Dear Applicant,

You have been identified as currently having a Graduate School application in progress.  It is important that you are aware that the user account you created when you began the application will no longer be valid.

You will be receiving an email from our ITServiceDesk in the near future that will explain the changes and provide instruction for the action required.

It is imperative that you follow the instructions in the email. The activation of the enhanced account is required to complete our consideration and processing of your Graduate School application.

We apologize for the inconvenience.

Thank you."

Please follow the instructions you are given to ensure that your application will be received by our department. Should you have any questions, please use the Graduate School's Contact Us Form.
