Team # 910 -- MyPennState Enhancements
Undergraduate Education

April 2009


To completely overhaul the MyPennState system, making significant design and functional improvements.

MyPennState existed in a basic format for a number of years, and was designed to be a personalized website that allows prospective students to login and receive specific information that is pertinent to them based upon their interests and stage in the application process. Prospective students are also able to complete their application, receive their decision, accept their offer of admission, and schedule visits through MyPennState.
