Oct. 2: Open house for adults considering returning to college

Penn State Erie, The Behrend College, invites adults who are considering starting college or returning to their studies to attend an adult student undergraduate admissions open house on Tuesday, Oct. 2

The open house will begin at 5:30 p.m. with a one-hour exhibit fair in Roche Hall, located in the campus' School of Science complex. A seminar on admissions and financial aid will be held at 6:30 p.m. followed by an admissions application workshop at 7:30 p.m.

Representatives from student support offices, including admissions, adult student services, the Academic and Career Planning Center and Veterans Affairs, will be on site to meet with prospective students.

Enrollment in any of Penn State Behrend’s 36 baccalaureate majors, five associate degree programs, or 22 certificate programs is open to new or returning adult students. Faculty members from each of the campus' 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 re-enrollment applications will be accepted at the open house. Those who attend the event will have application fees waived, a savings of up to $50.

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