Step 1: Create a MyPennState Profile

The first step of the application process is to create a MyPennState profile, if you do not have one already. MyPennState is where future students can access the online application.

If you are new to MyPennState, you will need to establish a Friends of Penn State (FPS) ID and password, which you will access during the MyPennState profile creation process. Once you have your login information, you can sign in to begin work on your application.

A MyPennState perk: Applicants who receive an offer of admission and decide to attend Penn State typically use the same ID to access many services on campus when they are a student, like checking email, scheduling classes, and using computers on campus.
