I am a 1L. You can access eLion once you get your student ID and activate your Access account. If you're going to UP, you can get your ID card now and as soon as you do, you can stop by one of the signature stations in one of the computer labs and activate your Access account. Your Access account gives you access to eLion, where you can access your tuition bill also...yea!
Its also what you will use to access your email. in fact, the user name you get is your firstname.lastname@example.org
. It pretty much provides you access to everything at Penn State. For those of you attending Carlisle, if I remember the orientation packet information correctly, you have to wait until next week to get your ID card...sorry
