PennWest may be a new name, but its history spans nearly 165 years of tradition and academic excellence.
Formed by the integration of California, Clarion and Edinboro universities, PennWest is a model for future success. It’s building on the strengths of each university in order to offer every student a richer experience, while holding down the cost of education.
Three brick-and-mortar campuses welcome residential as well as commuter students, and its online offering allows you to choose the academic and personal options that suit you best.
You’ll have access to more courses, more faculty and more learning opportunities than ever before, including the in-person classes and hands-on learning that have always been a part of Cal, Clarion and Edinboro.
As a student, you will continue to receive the financial aid, personal attention and academic support you need to reach your educational goals and build the future you envision. Whatever campus you choose, you can also expect a vibrant experience that includes leadership and service opportunities, athletics, cultural activities, recreation, student-led clubs and more.
Our plans for the future are as bold and bright as the students we serve. To learn more or get answers to frequently asked questions, visit passhe.edu/integrations.
