• Dear PXU families:

    Although things are rapidly changing around us, the one thing that hasn't changed is the importance of college.

    You can be certain that the doors to college are still open, and we are here to support you with resources through this transition. While you may not be able to do things in the same way as you planned, colleges and community partners are setting up virtual platforms that will, indeed, get you to the college of your choice. So, as you continue to keep your eye on the future, know that we are here to help you get to that goal.

    The links below will take you straight to your college representative or a community partner who will help guide you through the next steps. Rest assured, your counselor also is available to offer you support, connect you with resources, and answer any questions you may have.

    We will get through this together because we are in this together.

    Your PXU family
