LEAP Program

LEAP (the Learning Edge Academic Program) provides entering freshmen the chance to begin their journey at Penn State by way of a learning community. LEAP students take two courses together in groups of 24 that are reserved exclusively for first-year students, who live together in the same dormitory area and have an upper class student mentor to guide them through their first semester.

This exciting and comprehensive experience is offered only during the summer and only to first semester undergraduates admitted to University Park. (Students who are admitted to fall semester can change their admission to summer by contacting the Admissions Office if they'd like to be a part of LEAP.)
