Instructions for submitting course syllabi for students who have yet to be admitted to Penn State and have completed course work at another institution.

To expedite the course review process, please email course syllabi to preapproval@psu.edu. If not available electronically, please mail syllabi to Undergraduate Admissions, The Pennsylvania State University, 201 Shields Building, University Park, PA 16802-1294. You may also fax syllabi to 814-863-7590.

If emailing syllabi, please follow these instructions:

  • Include your name and PSU ID number in the subject line.
  • Indicate the institution and state where course work was taken. Include course credit amount.
  • Attach each syllabus as a separate .pdf or Microsoft Word file.
  • Attach no more than four syllabi per email.
  • Do not send syllabi for multiple institutions in the same email.

Please do not submit brief course descriptions instead of syllabi. Course descriptions are only accepted in extenuating circumstances (e.g. school no longer exists).

It can take up to six weeks from the date a syllabus is received to the time you are notified via email about how courses will transfer to Penn State.
