APPLY TO PENN STATE
Step 2) The Application
We strongly recommend that future Penn State students complete their applications online. To do so, you will need to create a MyPennState account. MyPennState will take you through the Admissions process step by step. With MyPennState you can get application information, fill out your application online, print a paper application, receive customized messages and reminders, and check the status of your application. You can work on the online application and save it, then retrieve it at a later time for revision, completion, and/or submission.
To create a MyPennState account, go to http://www.psu.edu/admissions/ and click the "Sign Up" link on the right-hand side of the page. (Note: Make sure to remember your MyPennState user ID and password! Your application is linked to this account.)
To log into your MyPennState account, go to http://www.psu.edu/admissions/ and click the "Log In" link on the right-hand side of the page.
To print a paper application form, log into MyPennState and click the "Apply via Paper" link on the right-hand side of the page.
A Guidance Counselor Form must be printed out and given to your guidance counselor, who will submit this section with your high-school transcript.
The components of a completed application for a first-year student include:
- Your completed application form (Web preferred)
- $50 nonrefundable application fee
- A copy of your high school transcript, with completed Guidance Counselor Form
- Any transcripts from other colleges and AP scores, if applicable
- SAT I or ACT scores (SAT code #2660 or ACT code #3656)
Your application will be complete after all of these materials are received.
