Tips for applying:

  • To apply, you will first need to create a My Penn State Account. Use this account as a resource throughout the application process to schedule visits, see upcoming events, and check the status of your application.
  • Visit the Undergraduate Admissions site to learn when you should apply and when you can expect a decision.
  • Penn State's rolling application opens each year on August 1. It is highly recommended that you complete your application by the priority deadline of November 30. Admission becomes more competitive after this date, so for the best chance of admission to your first choice campus and program, make sure your application is complete by this priority deadline.
  • Make sure all of your SAT/ACT scores will be available prior to the November 30 deadline.
  • Carefully complete each section and double check your application before submitting!  It may be a good idea to have a parent or counselor review your application with you before your final submission.
  • Follow these steps to complete your Penn State application.
  • Visit the Undergraduate Admissions site to learn what happens after you submit your application.
