A-8: STATUS OF APPLICANTS WHO TOOK COLLEGE-LEVEL COURSES DURING HIGH SCHOOL

Procedure:

  1. An applicant who is a high school senior planning to graduate and receive a high school diploma at the end of the academic year will be considered for admission as a first-year student even though they may have taken or may be taking baccalaureate level courses at an accredited college or university on a part-time or full-time basis. An applicant who is a high school senior and is matriculated as a degree candidate at an accredited college or university in an early admission program will also be considered for admission as a first-year student.
  2. All baccalaureate degree courses may be evaluated and, if acceptable, used for degree credit at Penn State.
    1. Students who took baccalaureate degree courses from an institution other than Penn State may use the transfer credit tool to determine whether the course will transfer to Penn State and will meet the student's Penn State degree requirement.
    2. For courses for which no Penn State evaluation exists, the student must submit a current syllabus into the course substitutions and reviews portal to initiate a formal review.
