Admissions to Penn State Updates 

Are students able to change their mind about using test scores in the evaluation of their application to Penn State?

Students are able to change the response to the test-optional question. The request to alter the response to the test-optional question must be submitted prior to the University issuing an admission decision.

If you have applied to the Accelerated Premedical-Medical Program, you may only change your test-optional answer prior to the program's November 1 deadline.

The test-optional answer can only be changed by following the process outlined in the student's MyPennState portal and clicking the "Change My Test-Optional Answer" button; or by emailing using the subject line “Change Test-Optional Answer” before an admission decision is made by the University.
