With its main emphasis on undergraduate education, it offers a range of associate and bachelor's degree programs, with nursing and business-related majors among the more popular fields of study for students.

It provides residential facilities for students who opt to live on-campus, fostering an environment conducive to academic focus and community involvement. Penn State Mont Alto is not particularly known for its athletics program and therefore does not place a significant emphasis on sports.
