What are the freshman admission standards?

October 15th, 2009 by Jaime

High school curriculum and grades are the most important admission factors. Most admitted students present a gpa that ranges from 2.5 to 3.5 (on a 4.0 scale) in a traditional college prep curriculum of math (3 years), science (3 years), social studies (3 years), English (4 years), and a foreign language (2 years). While there is no minimum cut-off, the test scores of most admitted students range from 900 to 1100 on the SAT (Critical Reading + Math) and 19 to 24 on the ACT (Composite score). Recommendation, essay, personal qualities, and activities are also important.

If you could choose one favorite thing about going to school here, what would it be?


“I would have to say the student population is my one favorite thing about PSU. I never feel like a number around campus and like that my professors know me by my first name. That was definitely one concern I had when choosing a school and have had no problems so far here at PSU.”

How have you changed since you first arrived @ PSU?


“In the beginning, I was definitely shy and nervous about starting my college career. Going into my second year, I have made some great new friends and am beyond excited to be back. ”
