If you are planning to graduate from Penn State Brandywine, it is necessary to take the following steps:
1. Declare your Intent to Graduate
You can do this by using the "Apply to Graduate" link on LionPATH. You must do so within the required time period.
2. Meet with your adviser
Run a degree audit on LionPATH and review it with your academic adviser to ensure that all requirements have been met. If you are missing course, credit, or grade requirements, you will NOT be able to graduate.
3. Check your address
You will be receiving important graduation information in the mail, so it is important that your address is up-to-date. You can check your address on LionPATH by selecting the "Address Information" tab. Make sure that your LOCAL address is correct.
4. Transfer your credits
You should avoid taking classes at another institution during your intended semester of graduation. If you do, you MUST ensure that Penn State receives the grades on time.
Students will not be approved for graduation until the University is in receipt of their official transcript from the other institution and it is showing on their academic requirement.
Students need to have their official transcript sent to the Undergraduate Admissions Office. This can be done one of three ways:
- The institution at which the student took the transfer credits can mail an official transcript to the Undergraduate Admissions office at 201 Shields Building, University Park, PA 16802.
- The institution can send a fax of the official transcript. Faxes can be sent to 814-863-7590. The fax MUST be sent from the institution, NOT the student.
- The institution can send the official transcript through Parchment, National Student Clearinghouse or eScrip-Safe to [email protected]. Please do not send the transcript to a specific person in the Undergraduate Admissions Office.
Students can email [email protected] or call 814-865-5471 to check on their transcripts or check their LionPATH account.
