Penn State, Big Ten Introduce Free Course-Sharing Initiative

Penn State students can take a free online course at select Big Ten universities this fall free of charge through a new initiative, the university announced Tuesday.

The new program, introduced by the Big Ten Academic Alliance, waives tuition and fees for an online course of each student’s choosing. Participating universities include Penn State, Maryland, Indiana, Michigan State, Nebraska, Ohio State, and Rutgers.

The new course-sharing program was designed to provide additional educational opportunities to Big Ten undergraduate students and get around the barriers caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

“Big Ten universities compete on the field, but until this fight is won, we are united in the critical research to battle this virus — and united in the classroom,” Lauren Robel, provost and executive vice president of Indiana and chair of the Big Ten Academic Alliance board, said.

Through this program, participating universities will offer online courses covering a wide span of topics, including insect biology, supply chain security, inequality, sports marketing, and many more, among others. A full list of offered courses can be accessed here.

“The Big Ten is home to world-class faculty members, and now Penn State students and their Big Ten peers can directly benefit from this collective strength,” Rob Pangborn, vice president and dean for Undergraduate Education, said. “I hope our students will take advantage of this unique opportunity to learn from leading scholars across the Big Ten, whether they plan to return to campus or learn from home this fall.”
