We welcome new students to our programs. Applying is fast and easy, and we’re here to help.
It is possible to enroll in one of our classes without being admitted to a certificate or master’s program. For many students, starting with one class is a great way to try online learning with Penn State.
Applications are accepted year-round for our five certificate programs. Prospective students with a baccalaureate degree are eligible to apply.
Prospective students can apply directly to a master’s degree program or start courses as a certificate student and apply via accelerated admission (if eligible).
All of our certificate and degree programs are eligible for federal financial aid.
