Information for School Counselors

School counselors play an important role in the application process, and Penn State hopes to make things as simple as possible for you and your students.

Sending transcripts

 We prefer that counselors send high school transcripts to us through Penn State's Web Counselor System. If you are not part of the Web Counselor System, please consider signing up to become an eletronic partner. Additionally, we can accept transcripts by mail or fax sent directly from the high school.

Application fee waivers

Penn State honors College Board and ACT fee waivers, as well as requests from school counselors documenting extreme financial hardship for the applicant. Please email admissions@psu.edu to request a fee waiver.

Copies of College Board or ACT fee waivers can be faxed to 814-863-7590 or mailed to:

Penn State Undergraduate Admissions
201 Shields Building
University Park, PA 16802

When sending fee waivers, please include the student's PSU ID number (if known), date of birth, and address to ensure that we are able to locate and apply the waiver to the correct application in our system.
