I’ve already received a degree from PSU and am now pursuing another. Do I have to send my PSU transcripts as part of my application?
If I’ve already been accepted to a graduate program, but wasn’t able to take classes right away, will I need to reapply to the program?
The MS in Applied Meteorology, Biology, and Environmental Science and Policy degree programs, and the MA in Historic Preservation require Graduate Record Examination® (GRE) scores. The other MS degrees and the MA in Personal and Organizational Wellness do NOT require GRE scores.
Applicants to the French Certification and Spanish Certification programs must submit passing Praxis II scores as part of the admission process.
For candidates who do not possess a master’s degree, and would like to pursue Educator Certification only, acceptance into the educator certification program requires the submission of passing scores on the Praxis Core Academic Skills for Educators Tests in reading, writing, and mathematics.
Admission tests are not required for candidates applying to the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT), Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Education (MEd), Certificate of Advanced Graduate Studies (CAGS), or the Doctor of Education (EdD) programs.
