A Brief History
The campus was founded in 1934 as the Pottsville Undergraduate Center by local community leaders interested in bringing quality post-secondary education to Schuylkill County. After decades of a steady increase in enrollment and academic offerings, it was clear that full-fledged campus facilities were needed and in 1967, it was moved to its current, seventy-acre location near Schuylkill Haven in east-central Pennsylvania.
In 2017, Penn State Schuylkill was named a 'Top 25 Northeast College' by Washington Monthly.
