What is FPS?

A Friends of Penn State (FPS) is a type of Penn State user account that allows secure interactions between Penn State and users not directly affiliated with the University. Several centralized Penn State services use web-based applications for their business transactions, and use FPS as the primary method for serving these transactions. With an FPS digital identity, you can gain access to a variety of web-based applications and services to:

  • Apply for undergraduate & graduate admissions
  • Manage financial aid and student loan payments
  • Register for classes via eLion
  • Enroll in Agricultural Extension Courses

If you would like to create an FPS account, click on the "Create an FPS Account" tab at the top of this page.
