We understand that every student's situation is unique, and you may have concerns you want personally addressed. This visit type is an opportunity for you to meet individually with an admissions counselor. Scheduling your visit is easy—just visit our calendar!

There are great opportunities to spend some time at Penn State over the summer! Penn State Schuylkill offers three summer open houses. These "Spend a Summer" visit opportunities are designed for students who have just completed their junior year of high school and are beginning to think about college. These open houses include a campus presentation, Q&A with staff and students, and campus tour with our student tour guides, the Lion Ambassadors.
