Career Services

Career Services helps students define their career goals and learn how to achieve them. The office helps students and alumni obtain permanent and short-term career-related employment and graduate and professional school admission through counseling sessions, workshops, alumni networks, a large career resource library and on-line information. Career Services also establishes and promotes contact between employers, graduate/professional schools, and the University; and hosts employer interviews through the on-campus recruiting program.

Naval Reserve Officers Training Corps

The NROTC program educates and trains qualified young men and women for service as commissioned officers in the Navy and Marine Corps. The NROTC scholarship program prepares mature young men and women for leadership positions in an increasingly technical Navy and Marine Corps. Students are awarded scholarships through a highly competitive national selection process, and receive tuition, books, fees, and other financial aid.

Penn Violence Prevention

PVP fosters collaborative relationships across campus to ensure a survivor-centered, multi-faceted approach to support services and primary prevention. Through collective community action, PVP is committed to ending interpersonal violence by addressing gender inequity, social injustice, and oppression through outreach and education.

Student Intervention Services

Weingarten Center

Penn's Home for Academic Support & Disability Services

Academic Support offers opportunities for undergraduate, graduate, and professional students to build and strengthen their study skills and strategies as they engage with Penn coursework and a variety of academic projects. It includes Learning Consultations and Tutoring.

Learning Consultations provides professional instruction in university-relevant skills such as academic reading, writing, study strategies, and time management.

Tutoring offers Penn undergraduate students free, accessible, and convenient options to supplement their academic experience.

Disability Services works closely with students who self-identify with a disability, in order to ensure equal access to all University programs, activities and services. The University of Pennsylvania is committed to providing the same exceptional opportunities to all Penn students. Policies and procedures have been developed to provide students with as much independence as possible and to promote self-advocacy. We encourage you to learn more about our services on our website. You will find information about the services we provide as well as procedures for requesting accommodations. We also invite you to contact Disability Services to address your specific access needs as part of our collaborative process.
