Transfer Process

Step 1: Apply Online

Apply for admissions using the online application.

Step 2: Submit Required Application Materials

Request an official high school transcript and have it sent to the Penn State Lehigh Valley Admissions Office at:

Penn State Lehigh Valley
Attention: Admissions Department
2809 Saucon Valley Rd.
Center Valley, PA 18034

Request an official transcript(s) from all post-secondary school(s) attended to be sent to the Lehigh Valley Admissions Office at the address listed above, and obtain an unofficial copy for your records. If you are currently enrolled, you will need to submit a final transcript when your coursework is completed.

Step 5: Placement Testing

Most students entering Penn State University are required to take a math placement exam. As a transfer student, you may or may not be required to take one or both of these tests. These tests have nothing to do with your admission to the University, but are used to determine your level of ability in these areas for placement in the appropriate courses.

  • You will be contacted by the Academic Advising Center (after your acceptance fee has been paid) and given the testing information, if needed. The test can be taken online from your own computer.

Step 6: New Student Orientation

Meet with an academic/faculty adviser to schedule classes. It is very important that you bring an unofficial grade transcript, as well as your official evaluation of your credits with you.
