Office of Undergraduate Admissions

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions serves all undergraduate prospective students including high school, transfer, international, postbaccalaureate, non-degree and co-admitted students, guiding them through the enrollment process: application, admissions and orientation. Undergraduate Admissions, in collaboration with campus and community partners, seeks to attract and enroll undergraduate students using strategic enrollment practices. We strive to provide exceptional customer service and are committed to providing digestible and user-friendly processes to prospective students and their families, high school and community college personnel, and the public. We are committed to serving diverse student populations and promoting college access.

Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships

The Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships serves prospective and continuing students along with students who have left the university, guiding them through the process of applying and maintaining financial aid and scholarships and management of loans. The Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships strives to help students understand their college costs and apply for financial aid programs. Our goal is to make a degree from PSU affordable and the financial aid and scholarship processes as simple and straightforward as possible.
