Three easy steps

We'll be happy to waive the $50 Penn State application fee if you visit campus. Here's what you need to do:

Step 1: Create a MyPennState profile

Go to admissions.psu.edu and create a MyPennState profile. Make note of your MyPennState ID. It will look something like "xyz1234."

Step 2: Fill out your application

Fill out your Penn State application at admissions.psu.edu using your MyPennState ID. When you get to the screen that asks for your credit card information. STOP. Do not enter any payment information. Instead, print out your application by clicking on the link at the top right of the screen that says, "Print summary."

Step 3: Visit campus and submit application

Bring your application summary and your MyPennState ID with you when you visit campus, either for an appointment with an admissions counselor or at one of our events. We'll use that information to waive your fee and to talk with you about your Penn State options. Once we waive the fee, you should go back to admissions.psu.edu and submit your application.

Note: Do not pay the application fee or enter your payment information when filling out your application. If you do, we cannot waive the fee or refund your money.
