Admissions to Penn State Updates 

If I can't attend this fall as I have planned, can I defer?

If you have been admitted as a transfer student, we may be able to defer your offer of admission for up to one year, depending on your current college courses.  Please submit your deferral request in writing to admissions@psu.edu with the Subject Line: Deferral Request.
