Miscellaneous Information

Will your group be coming directly to University Park from the address you provided above?

If no, where will your trip originate prior to coming to University Park?

The Penn State Undergraduate Admissions Office is committed to providing access to the University Park campus for groups interested in learning more about the University. The Admissions Office sponsors a campus visitation program targeted specifically to high school students, grades 9-12. Information sessions and campus tours are organized with the prospective college student in mind, and are not intended for general school field trip purposes.

Our expectations are as follows:

  • For the best visit experience, Penn State recommends a group size of 50 students.
  • Visiting groups will be accompanied by adult chaperones/teachers/sponsors. We recommend one chaperone for every 20 students. The ultimate responsibility for each group rests with these designated adults, not Penn State.
  • Visiting students are expected to conduct themselves as respectful visitors to the campus and not demonstrate disruptive behavior during any aspect of their campus visit. Should such behavior occur, the Penn State admissions staff and/or tour guides have the right to terminate the campus visit immediately.
  • Groups are not permitted to use any electronic devices during a campus information session or tour (e.g., cell phones, iPods, etc).

By submitting, I am stating that I understand and agree with the conditions and expectations explained above and accept responsibility for my group's visit to the University Park campus of The Pennsylvania State University.
