Resources for Current Students

While you are a student at South Hills, you can use this page as a portal to all the resources you'll need. The list below has links to everything from your student email to the Virtual Library to schedules for regular class times and weather delays — everything you need is just a click away!

Due to the recent snow days, the end of the 2017 Winter Term is now Friday, March 3rd for students at our State College and Lewistown campuses. If we have additional snow days, the end date will change as needed. The end of the term is still March 2nd for students of our Altoona campus. Click here to see the full Academic Calendar.

FAFSA Renewal

Current students returning next Fall to continue their studies and students interning this Summer will need to complete a FAFSA renewal. The deadline for the FAFSA renewal is May 1, 2017; students missing this deadline will forfeit any opportunity for a PHEAA state grant. There will be FAFSA renewal sessions offered at each campus during designated common hours. The Financial Aid staff will be on hand to assist students with FAFSA completion during these sessions.

Please plan to attend, bring your FSA ID (username and password) and your completed 2015 tax return and W-2s. If you are dependent, your parent is welcome to attend the session with you or must be available by phone (parents will also need to provide the same information as listed above). Students not completing a FAFSA renewal will NOT be eligible for financial aid. Sessions at each site will be as follows:

  • Altoona: Wednesdays in room 107
  • Lewistown: Wednesdays in room 4
  • State College - Winter Term: Tuesdays and Thursdays in room 21
  • State College - Spring Term: Tuesdays in room 19, Thursdays in room 10
