Unofficial Grade Report doesn’t display Student’s Name or “Penn State”
(Posted September 3, 2019)
Since the Upgrade, the unofficial student grade report does not display the name of the student or Penn State/The Pennsylvania State University. Some students need this information visible to employers so they can be reimbursed for courses. The LionPATH Development and Maintenance Organization (LDMO) and University Registrar moved a permanent solution to Production on September 20, 2019.
You can also still use the Classic Student Center – student name and University name are available there from the Printer-friendly view of the Grades page.
Faculty/Instructor Data Visible via LionPATH app
(Posted August 29, 2019)
We received a report of a faculty member’s cell phone number being visible to students. The LionPATH Development and Maintenance Organization (LDMO) has reviewed the issue and found that the mobile app ignored the configuration setup to hide this data since the upgrade in early July. We have filed a service ticket with the vendor (Oracle), and in the meantime we have turned off the web service call so the data is no longer being returned. Students using the app will now see an Error Message if they attempt to click through to instructor contact information. The rest of the app functionality will continue as normal.
The LDMO recommends students use the online version of LionPATH (lionpath.psu.edu), as the interface is responsive to various screen sizes and does not have the same issues as the app.
LionPATH Android mobile application does not work
(Posted August 21, 2019)
The LionPATH Android mobile application does not work for versions 8 and 9. While the LionPATH Development and Maintenance Organization (LDMO) has addressed and fixed the majority of known issues with the LionPATH app, we are unable to deploy an update due to a process issue with Oracle. As such, support for LionPATH Mobile on Android is being discontinued at this time.
The LDMO is exploring potential replacements for the mobile application; details will be communicated as they become available.

Some staff/faculty have reported that they are missing “Favorites” since the Upgrade. We will be taking all Favorites from Thursday, July 4th and importing them into Production. This may mean that any new Favorites created since Sunday, July 7th will need to be re-created.

Functioning of Financial Aid Page accessed through Advisor Center
(Posted March 5, 2019, 9:45 a.m. EST)
The LionPATH Development and Maintenance Organization (LDMO) recently learned that there was an alteration to the functioning of the financial aid page, previously accessible via “Related Content” from the Advisor Center, which prevents it from working well within Related Content.
Advisers still have access to the same financial aid information at the following navigation:
We will be adding a Financial Aid shortcut “button” on the Advisor Details page that will take advisors to the appropriate page.
