January 13, 2012

The Penn State Beaver Admissions Office will host a series of events in February that are free and open to prospective students and their families.

An Application Workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to noon, and a Financial Aid Workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 11, in the Admissions Office, Student Union Building. The Be a PSU Student for a Day program will be held Wednesday, Feb. 15.

Participants in the Application Workshop can complete a Penn State application and, if applying to Beaver campus, may receive an acceptance decision on the spot. The $50 application fee will be waived during this day. Applicants must bring their official high school transcripts, and campus tours will be provided.

The Financial Aid Workshop will introduce parents and students to the Free Application for Federal Aid (FAFSA) and will help participants learn how to navigate around potential financial pitfalls while financing a college education.

The Be a PSU Student for a Day program allows high school students to spend the day as a college student on campus by attending classes, meeting with faculty, and dining with current students.

Registration is required for the Be a PSU Student for a Day program and is encouraged for the other programs. To register or obtain more information, contact the Admissions Office at, call 1-877-JOIN-PSU, or visit
