Penn State requires students who have accepted their offer of admission to provide documentation that indicates the student's high school completion status.
Adult learners, as defined by the University, are exempt from this requirement.
A copy of your final official high school transcript that shows the date when the diploma was awarded.
To be considered official, the transcript must be sent directly to Penn State from the high school.
Validation of the Self-Reported Academic Record is also required for a first-year student.
If after receipt of your final high school transcript it is determined that additional information is needed, the To Do List in the Student Services Section or your MyPennState checklist will be updated to reflect the required documents.
