As you complete your Paterno Fellows requirements, you are responsible for marking them “Claimed Satisfied” on your entry in the PF database. To access the database, go to http://pfp.la.psu.edu/. You will need to log-in using your PSU access ID and password. Once you have accessed your entry on the database, scroll down to appropriate requirement. Include a brief but exact description in the box provided, e.g., for the education abroad requirement, a description of “studied abroad in Rome, Italy FA 12” is exact; “studied abroad” is not. For the leadership requirement, “Finance Committee Chair for THON 2015” is exact; “Completed various hours of volunteer work” is not. In some instances, you can choose from a scroll down menu and then elaborate as necessary.
Please note as well that documentation forms are required on two occasions 1.) upon completion of your service or leadership requirement and 2.) upon completion of a non-credit internship. Leadership courses and credited internships appear on your transcript, so there is no need to document them further. Documentation are available on the Paterno Fellows website. Submit documentation forms to Barb Edwards in 103 Sparks Building.
You should update the requirements you’ve met as you complete them. Please do not wait until your graduation semester. The Paterno Fellows Program needs time to approve your submissions and mark them “satisfied.” We also use the information you provide in the program distributed at the Paterno Fellows graduation reception for Fellows and their guests.
