College Updates

Pennant Systems Now Live

As of March 14, the University has transitioned to Pennant as the new student information system, which includes the launch of Path@Penn and Advising@Penn.

Path@Penn is an enhanced interface for students to access their academic, financial and profile information that will replace Penn InTouch. Starting April 4, Path@Penn will also include access to the new course search and registration tools to plan for summer registration and advance registration for the fall. Students should validate/update their personal information in Path@Penn and verify/update the following items:

- Local and Permanent Addresses
- Phone Number 
- Emergency Contact 

For detailed instructions on how to verify and update the items above, see the Updating General Student Information quick reference guide on the Pennant Resources page.

Academic advisors can log in to the Advisor In Touch replacement, Advising@Penn, to explore the new advising tools. Academic Advisors should log in to Advising@Penn to verify they are able to log in. For a more detailed overview and walkthrough of the interface, see the Guide to Advising@Penn on the Pennant Resources page.

Looking forward, there will be a transition period through June, during which students and advisors will use both the InTouch and @Penn systems for registration and academic planning. For guidance on when to use Penn InTouch versus Path@Penn, visit the Student Support Resources page on the NGSS website.
