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 October 15 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.
