Admissions to Penn State Updates 

Can I accept my offer after May 1?

May 1 is still the desired date for accepting your offer of admission at Penn State. The sooner students accept the offer of admission to Penn State, the sooner they will be able to:

  • Register for New Student Orientation
  • Register for classes
  • Secure on-campus housing (for those who desire to live on campus)
  • As the start of of the Summer and Fall 2021 semesters approach some programs and campus options may be limited. Admitted students should check their MyPennState profile for an up-to-date application status. 

International Students

The deadline to accept your offer of admission to Penn State is May 1, but we understand that as an international student, you may require additional time to gather materials and complete paperwork.
