Application Process

The Schreyer admissions process includes a holistic review of each application. Honors faculty review the high school transcript, essays, short answer questions, and recommendations submitted by each applicant. This is a very competitive process as we are limited to a first-year class of 300 students.

The Schreyer Honors College is open to almost all baccalaureate programs at all Penn State campuses, except for the exceptions listed below:

Accelerated Pre-Med/Medical Program
You may apply to both but would have to choose one over the other if accepted to both.
Doctorate of Physical Therapy at Abington Campus
You may apply to both but would have to choose one over the other if accepted to both.
Nursing at Fayette, Mont Alto and Worthington Scranton Campuses
Scholars are not eligible to pursue nursing at these locations.

In order to apply to the Honors College, you will need to complete the general Penn State application first. Doing so will allow you to fill out and submit the Schreyer Honors College application.
