On July 1, 1997, the Penn State Ogontz campus became a Penn State college that may grant baccalaureate degrees, and was renamed Penn State Abington.
The Ogontz name lives on in the Chief Ogontz Award given by the Student Government Association to a faculty or staff member in recognition of outstanding contributions to student life.
Two associate degree programs, 19 baccalaureate degree programs, and continuing education programs designed for adult students are also available.
Graduate degree programs are not offered at Penn State Abington.
