Adult Student Admissions Open House

Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, invites adults who are considering starting college or returning to their Spring Open House Photostudies to attend an adult student admissions open house on Wednesday, March 26.

The open house will begin at 5:30 p.m. with an exhibit fair in Roche Hall, located in the college’s School of Science complex. Seminars on admissions and financial aid will follow.

Representatives from student support offices, including Admissions, Financial Aid, Adult Student Services, and the Academic and Career Planning Center, will be available to meet with prospective students.

Enrollment in any of Penn State Behrend’s 40 undergraduate degree programs is open to new or returning adult students. Faculty members from each of the college’s four academic schools—Sam and Irene Black School of Business, School of Engineering, School of Humanities and Social Sciences, and School of Science—and its nursing program will be on hand to answer questions and discuss learning and career opportunities.

New admissions applications and Penn State reenrollment applications will be accepted at the open house. Those who attend the event will have their application fee waived, a savings of $50.

There is no charge to attend the adult student open house and no obligation to apply. To register, call 814-898-6700, email or visit
