Access to Student Information

eLion is Penn State’s web-based interactive system, where students, faculty, advisers, parents, and others go for access to academic and financial records and services.

How can students use eLion?

Students use eLion to access the information and services needed to initiate and complete academic programs. Specifically, students are able to review financial aid awards, register for courses, find advisor assignments, pay semester bills, check grades, drop and add courses, update address information, and more.

How can parents use eLion?

Students can grant access to portions of their academic record to parents and others who need to view this information. Once access is given, parents/others can use eLion to:

  • access and pay tuition bills
