Majors in the University College may be started at any campus and are completed at one of the 14 campuses comprising the University College. (The ending campus is noted with the transfer requirements.) Applicants with less than two years of course work will enter the college in a pre-major status and gain entrance to their major on completion of the entrance to major requirements for their intended major. Typically at the end of the sophomore year. Applicants starting at a campus other than one of the University College college campuses will transition to the University College campus offering the program on completion of the entrance to major requirements.
Please contact your campus of interest for more information about a particular University College major:
Please be advised that a student’s tuition will increase when the Penn State transcript reflects 59.1 cumulative credits. Credits earned from tests, like AP or IB exams, are considered transfer credits and are included in the cumulative credit total. If the credits you are transferring or have transferred to Penn State place you above 59.1 cumulative credits after the start of the semester, your tuition will increase immediately. You will receive a bill for the additional tuition on the first day of the following month. For more information, visit the Office of the Bursar's website
