Penn State Health employees and their spouses have been granted unprecedented access to select Harrisburg University of Science and Technology and NuPaths courses and programs thanks to an agreement recently reached between the University and the health system.

Per the agreement, eligible Penn State Health employees and their spouses may receive discounts on tuition rates and training fees for select Harrisburg University undergraduate, graduate and certificate programs.
