Will Penn State extend the application deadline date for students impacted by the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)?

At this time, Penn State is not extending the application deadline. However, we understand that applicants may have been prevented from submitting all of their application materials by the deadline due to the coronavirus, and we wish to be flexible in those situations.

We encourage applicants to reach out to us to discuss their unique circumstances. Students and/or their school counselors can send an email to to explain the reason for the application material delay, with the Subject Line: Application Concerns. Penn State wishes to support students during this uncertain time and will follow-up with students regarding the next steps for their application.
