New Alumni Users
Alumni who have never held a Nittany Lion Alumni Career Network account should go to the registration page to set up an account. You will receive a confirmation email once your account has been approved by a Alumni Career Services staff member. The process usually takes 2-3 business days.
Alumni who have previously registered for the NLACN can continue to use the account established as an undergraduate. Go to the login page and choose the "Forgot Password" tab. Once you enter your Penn State undergraduate e-mail address, a password for the NLACN will be emailed to you. Please remember to update your email address since your @psu.edu address will expire six months after graduation.
Alumni are able to add On-Campus Interviewing to their Nittany Lion Alumni Career Network Accounts for a $45 fee. To access this feature, visit OCI for Alumni.
