Our team provides support to Philadelphia area students on all aspects of the college admission process from taking the SAT to applying for financial aid.
We support Penn State's goals of increasing the diversity of its student body and connecting students to the University’s multi-campus system. We also work closely with organizations that are dedicated to improving college access for high school students throughout Philadelphia.
Our office at the Philadelphia Navy Yard serves as space for students and families to meet our staff and learn more about the possibilities that a Penn State education can bring.
Penn State Admissions-Philadelphia holds workshops, bus trips, and other events throughout the year. These programs are designed to highlight the benefits of attending Penn State, but also provide general guidance on the college admission process. We would love to have you join us!
Our virtual experiences will connect prospective students with Penn State to learn more about the admissions process, academic program options, student engagement opportunities and what it is like to become part of the Penn State community.
Our office hosts workshops on preparing for the SAT, completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), and more.
Each fall and spring, we provide opportunities for Philadelphia-area students to visit Penn State’s campuses across Pennsylvania. Round trip transportation is to the campus from our office at the Philadelphia Navy Yard.
When you get involved on campus, get involved in things that are orientated around your academic interests so it becomes a form of engaged scholarship
