Online Geospatial Education at Penn State

Advance your Geospatial Career with Penn State

COVID-19 and Online Geospatial Education at Penn State

We are operating all of our online geospatial education programs as usual, and we're working hard to make sure every student is provided with the support they need during this time.

Enrollment is ongoing for our Fall session which begins in mid-August, and all classes will continue to operate as planned for future semesters.

While we are working hard to help our resident program colleagues adjust to teaching at a distance on short notice, our programs are built to be resilient to this situation and our main focus is on providing the support our students, faculty, and staff may need.

We are here to help you, and welcome anyone who needs assistance to contact us at
