Penn State Beaver encourages virtual visits and virtual appointments with an admissions counselor whenever possible, for the safety of our prospective students and guests, as well as our students, faculty, and staff.
Virtual visits allow students and families to meet with an admissions staffer via Zoom to learn more about the campus’ offerings and to get questions answered in a small-group setting.
We are pleased to offer limited on-campus visits each weekday and on select Saturdays for students from Pennsylvania who have been offered admission for this summer or fall. Only high school seniors or adult learners with an offer of admission are currently eligible for a visit. Due to travel guidelines issued by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, campus visits are currently limited to Pennsylvania residents only.
Pre-registration is required, and participants must agree to follow all safety protocols as required by Penn State. All students under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent/guardian.
The campus visit will include a short presentation and a campus tour. Upon request, student-athletes will be able to meet with an athletics representative if available. Participants must agree to follow all safety protocols outlined in the Visit Requirements below, and students under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
