    Topic Index: eLion Advising and Academic Information for Advisers

This Topic Index page provides an index to academic information that is available to Penn State advisers through eLion. Advisers can check the academic records of their assigned advisees and other undergraduate students as well as participate in interactive advising sessions that are similar to those found in the student section of eLion. A demo version of the student section is also available so that non-students can view the applications that are available in the student section of eLion.

The left-hand column below lists the information or student-specific academic records that an adviser can obtain from eLion. The right-hand column indicates which application an adviser would select from the eLion Adviser menu to retrieve the corresponding information.
