Submit Your Materials

These vary according to your particular situation and which major you've chosen.
Meet Placement Requirements
Our programs are rigorous, which is why you’ll need to show you're up for the challenge. Think of it as an assessment of your current skills in math, reading, and English to determine your best path forward to succeed in your intended major.
Acceptance to Penn College is offered as soon as your application and supporting materials are on file. Final acceptance is granted upon meeting placement requirements*.
