Overview
 

Penn InTouch is the University's secure online gateway for students to their academic, financial, profile and emergency contact information.  We trust you will find the Penn InTouch system to be friendly, intuitive and informational, and that you use it frequently to stay in touch and keep your profile information up-to-date.

Front page
The Front Page serves as your communication center for personal alerts and announcements, and provides a dashboard navigation system for easy access to key student registration and financial services, as well as convenience links to other frequently used student functions.  A graphic display of your schedule is provided, with the ability to drill down for more details about each course and link to Blackboard course sites, if available.  You can also export your schedule in the iCalendar format for easy import into your personal calendar.  For more detailed information, please click on the link below:

Profile, privacy & emergency
Update your Addresses and your Emergency Contact information for use in the UPennAlert emergency notification system.  You can also change your privacy preferences in order to authorize Penn to release academic and/or financial data to a parent, guardian, sponsor or other third party. Or change personal profile data related to ethnicity, disability, veteran status and sex, or register for the Penn Guardian service to enable them to locate you via GPS of your mobile device. If you are in an emergency.

Course Absence Reports
Notify your course instructors of short term absences for one or more courses.  A course absence report is the university recommended method for notifying your instructors when you miss classes due to a variety of reasons, such as medical, bereavement, family emergency and religious observance.  Beginning in Spring 2012, the course absence report system is being utilized for all undergraduate courses and a select group of graduate courses.  Please refer to the syllabus of your classes for specific details on the absence policies for each course, or check with your instructor.

Verify My Information
To insure that contact information is kept up to date, the university utilizes a periodic process to remind students to review and update some key information, including Addresses, Phone Numbers, Privacy Settings, Emergency Contacts and Direct Deposit account information.
