Admissions Requirements

Admissions Requirements

Your application to transfer to Penn State Hazleton will be evaluated based on four items:

  1. Choosing a Penn State Hazleton major to start and to graduate at Hazleton
  2. Meeting the minimum GPA
    We will review your application based on your GPA from all of your previous colleges, as calculated by Penn State. When a student repeats a course, both grades are included.  You must meet the “entrance to major” GPA.  Some majors are more competitive than others, and not all majors are available to transfer students.
  3. Meeting the Entrance to Major Requirements
    (List HN required GPAs)
  4. Meeting the High School Course Requirements
    You must have completed certain high school courses, usually in math or foreign language. The policy includes the complete list of the required high school courses.

Students who are deficient should plan to make up the course work before entering Penn State.  In some cases, accommodations are made at Penn State for adult students.

Students who do not meet the minimum requirements are encouraged to contact an admissions counselor to discuss alternative methods of entering the University.
