Dates to Remember

  • September 1: New application becomes available
  • New application becomes available on MyPennState
    • Applicants can use this application for the next spring, summer, and fall semesters
  • November 30: Recommended filing date for fall admission
    • Penn State Schuylkill has a modified rolling admission process, which means that we take applications throughout the year.
    • Applications will be accepted after November 30, but as admission criteria rise throughout the academic year, it may become more difficult to gain acceptance to your first choice campus or academic program.
    • When you are aiming to have your application complete by the November 30 filing date, you should also have all the required pieces of information for your application on file to be considered in the November 30 pool of admission decisions. Materials that you will need are: Penn State application, high school transcript, counselor form, SAT/ACT scores, and college transcripts (if you have attempted college coursework).
    • Students who apply to Penn State Schuylkill early get priority consideration for both campus and university scholarships.
