Step 5: Submit Required Application Materials

In order to complete your Penn State application, we need the following materials:

  • Application
  • Official high school transcript (and/or GED, if applicable)
    If you are an adult learner and have completed 18 or more credits at a regionally accredited university, you may be considered for admission without a high school transcript by confirming your graduation from high school.

    If your high school is in operation and able to provide a transcript, it is to your advantage to submit one as high school course work may influence eligibility for specific programs.

  • Official transcripts from any post-secondary institution where coursework was attempted
  • Official university or college transcripts (if applicable)

Some programs require additional items to complete your application. For full details on what is required for adult students and military students, please review our Admissions Requirements.
