Transfer Student Visit Information

The best way to know if a campus is a good fit for you is to visit—we hope you will take some time to experience Penn State.

Visit Information for Transfer Students

Penn State offers specialized visits for prospective students transferring from another college or university. You are a transfer student if you have attempted or completed 18 or more credits at another college or university after high school graduation. To help you narrow down your intended campus and program, review the Transfer Eligibility Requirements by major page to ensure your desired campus and program are available.

Whatever campus or program you have in mind, attending a visit will give you the chance to ask any questions and explore all the offerings of Penn State. We hope to see you on campus soon!

Transfer Visits to University Park

We host on-campus and virtual transfer visits. If you are a prospective transfer student and want to learn more about Penn State and University Park—including important aspects of the transfer application process like program eligibility and general information on transfer course evaluation—please join us for this session. Following the on-campus visit, you will tour campus. Although this visit focuses on University Park, we will explain the transfer admission process for all Penn State campuses.
