  1. Review Your Offer of Admission in MyPennState
    After all that waiting, an offer of admission has finally appeared in MyPennState—congratulations! Make sure you review that offer of admission closely. The letter outlines your intended area of study, your starting term, as well as your starting campus—Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus!
  2. Accept Your Offer of Admission
    If you choose to attend Penn State Fayette—and we hope you will—you will need to submit the $230 enrollment deposit to officially save your spot in our incoming class. To pay the $230 enrollment deposit, log in to MyPennState and select the “accept your offer of admission” button to take the next step.

  3. Submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
    You can access the FAFSA online at fafsa.gov after January 1. The priority filing deadline for Penn State is March 1, but students can still send in their FAFSA after this date. Students begin to receive their aid award notifications in late March. Please note: International students do not need to provide a FAFSA and are not eligible for federal student aid. Submission of the FAFSA is the only action required to apply for most financial aid at Penn State; however, some private scholarships and Penn State scholarships require separate applications.
  4. Learn about Student Aid and Scholarships
    All admitted students are automatically considered for Penn State Fayette campus scholarships. However, because of limited funding, Penn State cannot meet the full demonstrated financial need of all students. Students and their families have the primary responsibility for paying tuition and other costs. Education loans comprise the largest percentage of all available student aid. Also, students are encouraged to apply for Penn State scholarships and private scholarships.
    Many resources are available from the Penn State Office of Student Aid. Also, you are welcome to schedule an appointment to discuss financial aid with the Penn State Fayette Student Aid Coordinator, Rick Van Buren, by calling 724-430-4132.
  5. Attend an Admitted Student Event
    Even if you have already visited campus, it is a different experience when you have an offer of admission. We encourage you to visit to get a better idea of what life might be like at Penn State should you decide to attend. Talk with students, tour the campus, learn about your degree program, and take a glimpse of your future. Schedule your Penn State Fayette visit online!
  6. Explore Housing around Our Campus
    Penn State Fayette offers privately owned housing with residence hall experiences close to campus. Please review, explore, and secure your housing from resources provided through the off-campus housing list with Penn State Fayette’s Office of Student Affairs.
