2018-19 Office of Student Aid Scholarships

Our 2018-19 Scholarships for specific populations that require an additional application have been posted.

E-mail from PSU Admissions re: 2018-19 FAFSA

An e-mail was generated from the Office of Admissions reminding you to submit your 2018-19 FAFSA by February 15th. This is a general message and is not in any way tied to the LionPATH system. If you have submitted your FAFSA, selected PSU as a recipient, and received a receipt from Federal Student Aid indicating that your FAFSA has been successfully submitted to Federal Student Aid, then no further action is required. Once you have an offer of enrollment, then the FAFSA information will be linked to your record and display in your LionPATH account.
