About Penn State

The Wilkes-Barre campus of the Pennsylvania State University in Lehman, Pennsylvania, is a continually evolving campus that extends the resources of the Penn State University to the largely rural Bradford and Sullivan counties.

The campus’s academics consist of bachelor’s degrees and a few associate’s degrees in fields like:

  • Administration of Justice
  • Electrical Engineering Technology
  • Information Sciences and Technology
  • Surveying Engineering Technology
  • Letters, Arts and Sciences

Students also have the opportunity to complete the first two years of coursework for more than 160 programs offered at Penn State.

Although it is a small campus, Wilkes-Barre provides students with the resources for a dynamic education. The Bell Center for Technology, Friedman Observatory, Northern Tier Center and Science Center are only some of the facilities in which students may receive instruction, complete complementary coursework or simply enjoy college life activities.

Students may strengthen their bond with the university community by participating in its rich college life options. From student organizations like 4 Seasons and The Lazy Artists’ Society/Radio Club to community service projects with Toys for Tots, pet food drives and THON, the university’s own 48-hour dance marathon, you’ll find a place to fit in.

Admissions are determined by applicants’ extracurricular involvement, SAT/ACT scores, strength of high school curriculum and high school class rank.

Since the campus is predominantly for rural Pennsylvania counties, Pennsylvania residents pay lower tuition. All students may apply for financial aid by filing a FAFSA.
