Step 1: Apply Online

Step 3: Review Your Admissions Decision
Once you have received your offer of admission, pay your non-refundable acceptance fee of $230 online by logging back into your MyPennState account.
Step 4: Plan your Academic Coursework
Schedule a meeting with your program coordinator, or an academic advisor, to review your Transfer Credit Evaluation, identify your first semester of classes, and plan your Penn State degree program from start to graduation.
Step 5: Apply for Financial Aid
Step 6: 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 this test. This test is used to determine your level of ability in mathematics for placement in the appropriate course.
You will be contacted by the Academic Advising Office (after your acceptance fee has been paid) and will be sent an email with the ALEKS Math Placement Test instructions. The test can be taken online from your own computer.
Step 7: 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.
