Online Students

Information for Online Students

Penn is committed to providing the support every student needs for their success. Students in online programs have needs based on the nature of their educational program and distance from campus. Penn provides tailored services for online students, mostly delivered online or virtually.

Online students in a degree program have access to Handshake, where they can search and apply for jobs from thousands of employers who are seeking Penn students and alumni. We have also curated a set of career resources for online students, which you will find below. Additionally, we partner regularly with your online academic programs to bring you webinars and virtual workshops that can assist you in your career journey.

While we invite online students to access these online resources designed for them, please note that individual appointments and walk-ins, as well as on campus programs, interviewing and career fairs are designed and reserved for on campus students. Please refer to your program administrators if you have questions and see our eligibility policies for more information.
