Meet Our Academic Advisers

Did you know that one of our academic adviser’s sons was the drum major in the Penn State Blue Band for three years? Or that another of our advisers is a member of the Oglala Lakota Tribes of the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota? Click on your adviser’s name to learn more about your adviser! You can always make an appointment with your adviser through Starfish. Navigate to the network tab and click on adviser to schedule your appointment.

If you don’t think you’ve been assigned an academic adviser, please contact the advising department so that we can get you connected. 

You can help us provide the best support possible. Please leave feedback about your recent advising appointment by using the Academic Advising contact form.

“Penn State World Campus academic advisers are committed to working with students and being their advocates.”

Laura A Pasquini, Ph.D. and George E Steele, Ph.D., NACADA consultants


Tip: Your adviser will share online resources with you, so it is helpful for you to be at a computer while you talk.
