High School Counselors
We recognize the important role you have in assisting students during their college search. We created this page specifically to assist you and your students. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
Learn about the entire admission process, from visiting campus to registering for classes at PSU.
Students may submit their admission application online and defer the $50 application fee. The signed PSU Fee Deferral form and supporting documents MUST be mailed or faxed to complete the application.
We encourage high school students to participate in Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), and College Level Exam Program (CLEP) programs and exams.
Freshman applicants who do not meet the minimum 3.00 GPA are considered for admission based on the combination of GPA and test scores. PSU will also consider applicants with special circumstances. Additional information is requested from the student in order to perform a holistic review.
We know the questions arise during the admissions process. Our admission counseling staff is here to assist you and your students.
