Information for Transfer Students


It's never too late to change your mind...

Many students graduate from high school and leave home to go away to college. Sometimes, for many different reasons, related to financial or personal, they decide that it was not the best decision for them. In addition, students may earn associate degrees at other colleges or universities, and then want to further their education by enrolling in a bachelor degree program.

Penn State Schuylkill offers an excellent opportunity for these students to continue with their education through transfer admission. It provides a significant cost savings while giving the student an opportunity to either obtain a degree at our campus, or eventually finish their degree at another Penn State campus, like University Park.

Are you considered a Transfer Student?

If you have completed eighteen or more credits post-high school graduation, you will be considered a transfer student.

Will your credits transfer?

We can help you determine how transfer credits may work into a Penn State degree. The first step in this process is to use our online transfer credit tool. If you still have questions after evaluating your credits with this tool please contact admissions to set up an appointment with admissions/academic advising.

In order to be considered for admission, transfer students must complete an application and request official high school and college transcripts to be sent directly to:

Penn State Schuylkill
