CircleIn is a free-to-student study app that PSU has purchased a trial account for. It allows students to collaborate remotely on coursework by sharing information and ideas. The goal of CircleIn is to foster a learning community for participating students through online brainstorming, as in a study group.

CircleIn can be used on mobile devices and has a web version for computer use. Students also earn points by helping each other, collaborating, and studying with the application. Points can be redeemed for gift cards and rewards from companies like Starbucks and Amazon.

OAI and OIT do not directly support Circlein, so to learn more about the application’s features and student incentives, contact Circlein support: or email

CircleIn is sponsored by the Office of Student Success; please direct questions about how the app was selected to that office.
