Find the help you need to succeed and graduate on time.
The Office of Student Outreach and Success, in Becht Hall, welcomes undergraduate students at every stage of their PennWest Clarion experience. Whether you are a new freshman or transfer student, an upper-class student or a soon-to-be graduate, we are here to assist you.
Our office is open from 8 am - 4 pm daily, and you are always welcome to stop by - even if you're not sure exactly what kind of help you need.
The Office of Student Outreach and Success can assist you with:
Placement testing. The Office of Student Outreach and Success builds schedules for incoming students. We also coordinate placement testing to ensure that first year and new transfer students are assigned to the proper math and/or English courses, including developmental courses if needed.
Prior Learning Assessment, CLEP and DSST exams. Through Prior Learning Assessment, credit may be awarded for qualifying life experiences such as work or military training, volunteer work or independent certifications. CLEP and DSST exams let you demonstrate college-level achievement equivalency to specific undergraduate courses.
Access to Tutoring and Supplemental Instruction and other classroom supports.
