When do you plan to start?

Fall Semester   Spring Semester

Placement is a skills evaluation process used to determine your level of readiness for college-level courses.

We will evaluate your skills in math and English. The results will allow us to place you into first-semester courses that match your skill level, positioning you for academic success. You may meet placement requirements in one or any combination of the following ways:

  • Satisfactory placement test results
  • Qualifying SAT/ACT scores
  • Transferred courses from other colleges

Visit your applicant dashboard to check your placement status.

We've offered you acceptance, now it's time to seal the deal.

Let us know you plan to join us by confirming your intent to enroll.

Your privacy is important to us.

Let us know if there is someone you'd like to have access to your academic and non-academic information by assigning them Parent/Guest Access through SIS. You can change this access at any time.

The first step toward receiving financial aid is to complete your FAA. This form is unique to Penn College and allows us to process any other financial aid applications that you send to us, like the FAFSA.

 File your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)  

Most Penn College students receive one or more types of financial aid (grants, scholarships, or loans).

The FAFSA is an important resource because it:

  • Determines Federal Pell Grant eligibility
  • Has a significant role in determining PA state grant eligibility (and other states' grants)
  • Is required for federal student and parent loans
  • Is needed for some scholarships

After you have met placement requirements, the College Transitions office will create your first-semester schedule for you, guided by the following factors:

  • The requirements of your curriculum and recommendations of your academic school
  • Your placement results
  • Transferred courses, if applicable
  • Alternative credit such as advanced placement.

We will notify you by email when your schedule has been completed and is ready for you to view on SIS.

Connections, your new student orientation program, is designed to help you and your parents/guests prepare for the road ahead.

  • Learn more about academic expectations and involvement opportunities.
  • Obtain information about buying books/tool kits, selecting a meal plan, processing financial aid, and paying your bill.
  • Get answers to all of your questions so you will be ready to succeed as a Penn College Wildcat!

Through Connections you will participate in your academic school session. Your session will:

  • Help you understand your placement results and how to satisfy any developmental needs
  • Walk you through the scheduling process
  • Review your major's rigor and expectations
  • Provide an opportunity to meet individually with faculty or staff

Connections is for students who have confirmed their intent to enroll. See Connections for details.

If you applied while you were still in high school or had college courses in progress, then we offered you admission based on a partial transcript.

Before you can officially start classes as a Penn College Wildcat, you'll need to have your school send us an official, final transcript that shows your graduation date (high school students) or final grade (transfer students). These can be sent to:

admissions@pct.edu
or
Penn College
One College Ave, Dept 119
Williamsport, PA

Your bill will be available for your review on SIS in early July.

You will receive an email at your Penn College account when your electronic bill (eBill) is ready. Pay your bill by the deadline to avoid late fees.

See Bursar for more information.

All incoming students must submit proof of immunizations prior to their arrival on campus.

Please visit Immunization Requirements for a complete list of required immunizations and instructions for submitting them to College Health Services.
