At Pennsylvania Western University, Students Come First

Pennsylvania Western University brings together California, Clarion, and Edinboro universities into a single institution with three vibrant locations and campus experiences. We are building on the strengths and traditions of each campus, and planning for a future as bold and bright as the students we serve.

Our campuses have 165 years of tradition and excellence, maintaining our identities as the Vulcans, Golden Eagles, and Fighting Scots. No matter which PennWest campus you choose, you’ll be welcomed into a diverse, inclusive community of learners. Leadership and service opportunities, athletics, cultural activities, recreation, student-led clubs and more — it all adds up to a vibrant college experience in a place where you belong.

PennWest students have access to more courses, more faculty and more hands-on learning opportunities than ever before, including classes delivered in-person, hybrid, or online. You will receive the financial aid, personal attention, and academic support you need to reach your educational goals.

As a student, you will have a chance to find your place and choose an academic program that is designed to meet your needs and empower you to build the future you envision. Visit our academic page to learn more about the degrees offered at PennWest and the innovative ways we are delivering education.

We invite you schedule a visit to one of our three campuses and find out more about what PennWest has to offer.
