Application Process

Penn State has a rolling admissions application policy. The best time to apply as a first-year student to allow sufficient time to process your application:

Fall Semester – November 30

Step 1: Create a “MyPennState" account, which you will use to communicate with the University during the application process. Remember your User ID and password. Throughout the application process, you should check this account to receive updates on your status and information specifically for you.

Step 2: Complete the online application.

Step 3: Enter your credit card information to pay the $50 application fee and then click “Submit.” Exceptions to paying the application fee include: 1) if you have come for an official campus visit, 2) if you are financially eligible to have the application fee waived.  If you meet any of these exceptions, begin the online application and then contact our Office of Admission before clicking “submit.”

Step 4: Immediately notify your high school to have your transcripts sent to the Penn State admissions office. Your application will not be evaluated until the Admission Office has received the application and your high school transcript.
