First-year Students / Admissions Step 1
Follow the steps. . .
Step 1 - Application process and deadlines
Penn State has rolling admissions, which means there is no deadline for applying. However, we recommend that applications for first-year admission be submitted by November 30. Applications will be accepted after that date, but as admissions criteria rise throughout the academic year, it may become more difficult to gain acceptance to your first choice campus or academic program.
